Mulan is officially the next Disney classic coming to life.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Disney purchased a script by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek that reimagines the tale of Hua Mulan, the Chinese cross-dressing warrior heroine from the original film.
The animated version scored Disney a formidable $304.3 million worldwide – a number they’ve already managed to top with their most recent live-action venture, Cinderella, which has brought in $336.2 million around the world in just 3 weeks.
And those numbers are just mouse droppings compared to Maleficent (the live-action reimagining of Sleeping Beauty), which brought in $758.4 million last year – and the Alice in Wonderland remake, which brought in a magical $1.02 billion in 2010.
And next year, a live-action version of The Jungle Book and the sequel to Alice and Wonderland are in the works.
If that isn’t enough live-action remakes for you, Tim Burton is set to direct a live-action Dumbo in the near future.
And something tells us there will be many, many more coming up.
