Twenty years ago, Ming-Na Wen voiced the titular warrior in Disney’s animated classic Mulan, introducing moviegoers to a legendary Chinese heroine while putting her own stamp on the timeless tale. Now, as the studio preps a high-profile live-action Mulan remake, Wen tells EW she’s optimistic that the film — and star Liu Yifei — will do its cinematic forerunner justice when it hits theaters in 2020.
“Disney has done such an amazing job with the other live-action [remakes], and I love them all, like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and Maleficent,” Wen says. “So I’m definitely excited that they chose Mulan of all the other great Disney movies to turn into live-action. I think they’ll do a great job with it, and it’s great to keep that legacy alive.”
