Actor Donnie Yen has been roped in to star opposite actress Liu Yifei in Disneys live-action adaptation of "Mulan". Niki Caro is directing the movie with Chris Bender, Jason Reed and Jake Weiner producing it. The film's release date has been pushed back by more than a year to March 27, 2020, reports variety.com.
