“It is my duty to fight for the kingdom. To protect my family.”
Disney fans everywhere have been anxiously waiting for the new live-action Mulan film, which will be a bit different from the 1998 animated film.
Mulan is expected to be one of Disney’s biggest films of 2020, so it’s not shocking that Disney has decided to advertise the upcoming live-action during the Super Bowl, which takes place this Sunday, February 2.
This morning, January 31, Disney gave us a sneak peek at the new TV spot for Mulan, which is a 30-second ad filled with a lot of action and exciting footage.
The social media post also reveals that this is only a snippet of what’s to come. On Sunday, during the Super Bowl, Disney will release a full-length trailer online.

Unfortunately, we do not know exactly when the TV spot will air during the Super Bowl, but what we do know is that once the TV spot airs during the game, the full-length trailer will then immediately be available online for Disney fans to watch over and over again, trying to take everything in.
The Official Mulan Description:
“Acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro brings the epic tale of China’s legendary warrior to life in Disney’s Mulan, in which a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.”
Again, the upcoming Mulan live-action film won’t be a remake of the animated film like those in the past. This new film will be more realistic and won’t be the comedic, song-filled film that we know and love. In fact, director Nikki Caro stated in an interview:
“We don’t tend to break into song when we go to war. Not saying anything against the animation because the songs are brilliant and if I could squeeze them in there, I would have. But we do honor the music from the animation in a very significant way, that’s all I’ll say.”
Regardless, we cannot wait to see what the new trailer looks like and are excited to see what is to come with the new live-action Mulan. The upcoming film is set to debut in theaters on March 27, 2020.
