  • Disney's Live-Action 'Mulan' May Not Feature Songs, Director Says

Disney has recently given a lot of ammunition to people who say that Hollywood is all out of new ideas, with its current agenda being to simply remake its classic '90s animated films in live action format.

Fans have been anticipating the live action Mulan film since it was first announced.

Whatever happens, though, the new film is sure to be an important movie for little girls (and everyone, really) to see.

Additionally, having a (white) director of this film to reduce Mulan to a "martial arts movie" rubs us the wrong way. 'But the budget and the location and the story [are] offering such scope to me for [an] incredible, muscular piece of girly martial arts extravaganza in China.

Nostalgia is the name of the game and by bringing familiar animated classics back to the big screen in live-action form, it looks like they have found a flawless balance. "I would guess that it is pretty far up there in terms of the most intricate and elaborate musical numbers ever shot", he added.

With the way Niki Caro worded her response, she must be disappointed that Mulan won't feature any of the original music from the animated feature.

Writers: Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek originally penned the script, and Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver rewrote it, Entertainment Weekly reports. And I can't wait. It looks like that might be the case, according to the remake's director, Niki Caro.

The movie won't be entirely boring without any music though. There are at least two live-action Mulan projects now in the works, with Sony and Disney both attempting to bring their version to the big screen. So, perhaps, moving the film away from musical status is a strategic move to depict a stronger, more independent hero.

Numerous film's details are still up in the air.

Mulan featured a number of favourite Disney songs including "I'll Make a Man Out of You" and "Reflection", which was released as a single by Christina Aguilera and launched her singing career.

What do you think about the possibility of Mulan with no songs?
