“In recent months, it has become clear that nothing can be put to stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis,” said a Disney spokesman on July 23rd. Variety. “Today this means pausing our release plans for Mulan as we evaluate the most effective way to bring this film to audiences around the world. ”
At least we know that Mulan has received stellar reviews so far. Read what critics who were lucky enough to see the movie say below.
Original story: March 10, 2020—
Disney highly anticipated live-action remake of Mulan it will be released in theaters on March 27 and, if the first reviews are indicative, it could only be one of the best films of the year.
The premiere of the Los Angeles movie aired on Monday March 9 and critics have dug it, apparently Twitter. Like, I really dug it. As in some, some claim that it is Disney’s best live-action remake. It’s a nice compliment, as Disney restarts almost all of his classic animated films.
Film reporters are screaming the film star, Yifei Liu, is director, Niki Caro, in particular. “I have seen MULAN twice and I must say that it is fantastic” Yahoo! entertainment Kevin Polowy tweeted. “Easily Disney’s best live action reboot. Do I think it’s also Disney’s first epic battle? It is beautiful, compelling, rich and empowering. The cast is excellent and the direction of Niki Caro is simply breathtaking. ”
MashableDeputy Entertainment Director Angie J. Han added: “#Mulan has been the best of Disney’s live-action remakes since Cinderella—I didn’t even miss the songs. Find new notes in a story we already know as it offers wonderful action, heart and humor. Liu Yifei is 🌟💥. ”
Watch some other reactions from people in the industry who watched the movie below.
Pop singer Hayley Kiyoko also saw the movie ahead of time and loved it. “I LOVEEDDDD MULAN !!!!! It is very different, but it is just as good I promise !!! So powerful and so important for new generations to see it, “he tweeted.
Fans of the 1998 animated film were sad to hear that this live-action remake wasn’t going to be a musical (though Caro did it tell BuzzFeed the original music will be honored “significantly”). On this decision, Mulan producer Jason Reed say Collider, “It won’t be the traditional” musical break ” [songs]. They won’t stop their workouts to make a large number of music on the camera. However, there are a number of songs that are iconic for the film and tell a fantastic version of the story, and they are very useful in the way we are putting the film together. ”
He continued: “It gets a little easier in the animation to keep the tension and reality in place and get people to get into the song and sing to the camera. We made the decision to want to keep the world, even if it is a fantasy, more rooted, more realistic, so those emotions have really played and the threat is very real. So we’re using music in a slightly different way. ”
It seems this film it’s superb, music or no music. I can’t wait to try it.
