Of this wave of remakes of movies in a live-action version of the Disney classics, undoubtedly the most awaited so far is that of Mulán, a film that in 1998 was a box office success that will soon be repeated. Still, this time with a slightly more mature, since the tape has been classified as not suitable for children under the age of 13.
The film will be more similar to the Chinese legend of the warrior Hua Mulan, so it will not have musical successes from the original version as “Action Men”, but that does not mean that there will be no action in the film, as it has been categorized as PG-13 for its sequences of violence, which makes it the first live-action with this degree.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Motion Picture Association of America gave the remake of Mulan the PG-13 rating, because in the multiple advances of the film we have already seen that it will be more of a fantasy war epic instead of of a musical like its predecessor version that was classified as U, that is, older than four years.
To give you a better idea, the live-action versions of Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King had G or PG ratings, that is, for all ages or from 10 years old. As the first remake to receive this rating, Mulan will make Disney history; But it’s not the first movie to have this degree, Pirates of the Caribbean from 2017 also got a PG-13.
The new version will have significant changes in the narrative, but it will also remain faithful in other aspects to relive the memories of childhood. With the actress Liu Yifei as Mulan, Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Li Gong as the witch Xian Lang, Jet Li as Emperor of China, among others; Mulán will be released on March 27, 2020.
