"Mulan" Rounds Out Supporting Cast

What We Know About The Cast Of Disney's New'Mulan So Far

For those unfamiliar with the story, the film follows the heroic tale of a young woman called Mulan who disguises herself as a man in order to join the army, so that her elderly dad doesn't have to sign up.

Following the announcement earlier this week that Disney's upcoming live adaptation of Mulan will co-star martial arts legend Donnie Yen, two more huge Chinese stars have been added to the cast. Yen will be portraying Commander Tung, Mulan's mentor. Perhaps that will change in this telling?

Along with them, Chinese-Vietnamese actress Xana Tang will also join the cast playing Mulan's sister. It is unknown how big of a part she will play, given that Mulan spends most of the story away from home.

And the witch isn't the only new character to be hitting our screens.

Mulan is only the latest in a series of live-action remakes of Disney animated classics, following the studio's success with such films as Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, Cinderella and The Jungle Book. In addition, there will apparently be no musical numbers (despite the famed epicness of "I'll Make a Man Out of You").

Liu Yifei will take on the role of Mulan, after the Hollywood Reporter said she was picked out of almost 1,000 candidates!

Jet Li is one of China's most beloved actors, having shot to fame in his homeland thanks to his martial arts franchises, such as "Shaolin Temple", and gaining worldwide fame with his performance in "Lethal Weapon 4" (1998).
