According to The Hollywood Reporter, the casting director saw 1000 candidates across five continents before zeroing in on Yifei.

Directed by The Zookeeper’s Wife filmmaker Niki Caro, the movie will be filmed in New Zealand (Niki Caro’s home country) and China.

This live-action film will be based on the 1998 animated film Mulan, which grossed over 300 million dollars. The film was also nominated for Golden Globe and Academy awards.

Producers on the Disney live-action remake include Jason T. Reed, Chris Bender and Jake Weiner. Executive producers are Barrie M. Osborne, Bill Kong and Tim Coddington. The film will release on March 27, 2020.
