Who is that girl you see, staring straight back at you? That's Mulan, just not in animated form this time. A new trailer for the highly anticipated live-action adaptation of the iconic Disney animated film is here, and while some people may be wary of the many apparent changes in the new movie, they should fear not. There are many original Mulan references in the new trailer. And fair warning: some of them just might make you tear up a little.
The new film's storyline is essentially the same one as fans have come to love. Liu Yifei stars as Mulan, a budding warrior who forgoes the expected path of marriage and poses as a man in order to fight in place of her father in the Chinese army. Admittedly, there are some significant changes, including some exciting new faces in the form of Mulan's new sister, Hua Xiu, and a villainous witch. Of course, the biggest change is the lack of musical numbers — don't expect Mulan to burst into song while training.
But for the most part, the new Mulan should still have fans in their nostalgic feels thanks to these references to the original animated classic they know and love.
