Admittedly, it’s just teaser and there is plenty of room to go down hill from here but all that said, I don’t hate this and I’m actually shocked by that.
After tirelessly searching for literally a couple of minutes I discovered that Jason Scott Lee is going to be playing the villain. Bori Khan, who appears to be slightly more historically relevant enemy for the People of the Han.
He has the chops for the part. I approve.
It doesn’t matter if I approve.
He’s not the actual villain, he’s just the muscle. The real villain is a witch played by some actress I’ve never heard of named Gong Li. She is apparently big in China but I’ve never seen her work.
Holy crap! I HAVE seen her work. She was White Bone Lady in Monkey King 2.
If you haven’t seen it, let me assure you, White Bone Lady can easily handle being the main villain.
Okay, my biggest question at this point is, are any of the Mulan songs going to be in this movie at all? Because this one is clearly being built with the China market as it’s primary market and the People of the Han are NOT into Music Man. This is a first for Disney.
On the other hand I really don’t want to see how Woke Disney would fuck up, A Girl Worth Fighting For.
