Disney’s live action “Mulan” isn’t looking so hot as news breaks that the movie won’t be a musical film. Although we were all pleasantly surprised when an insider reported to Vanity Fair that the main cast would not feature any white leads. Disney has yet to decide who will play Mulan for the live action remake. Entertainment Weekly reported the movie will be based on a script originally penned by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek and rewritten by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. Jake Weiner, Chris Bender, and Jason Reed are said to be the producers of the movie.
Niki Caro, the director for the upcoming live action movie, told Moviefone that there will be no songs in the movie, as of right now. Caro, known for her work in, “McFarland, USA,” and, “The Zookeeper’s Wife,” described the movie as a “muscular piece of girly martial arts extravaganza in China” to Screen Crush.
Although fans are still excited for the movie, devastation rings out amongst all those who were waiting to see a shirtless General Shang sing “I’ll Make a Man Out of You.”

As of right now, “Mulan” is scheduled to be released on November 2, 2018. The only question here is: will the movie live up to our expectations? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
