Mulan is a girl worth fighting for, she’s fighting for herself along with her family and China.

On Sunday, the makers dropped the latest trailer for the highly anticipated live-action adaptation of Disney’s 1998 animated hit Mulan.

Mulan follows its titular heroine played by Yifei Liu, as she is in disguise as a male to take her ailing father’s place in the Imperial Army after the Emperor of China (Jet Li) decrees one man from each family must join the fight. She gets ready and sets out to bring honor to her family in new ways, instead of fulfilling her expected duty of marrying a man recommended to her by the matchmaker — but she faces dangers, including the rumored powers of a witch, and protect her identity to avoid disgrace.

This is the third and final trailer to drop for the movie after December’s first full-length spot and last July’s teaser. This is the latest in live action adaptations for Disney, following 2019’s massively successful Aladdin and The Lion King. Hewing more closely to the original Chinese legend of Hua Mulan than the animated version, the live action update promises to be, in the words of director Niko Caro, a “girly martial arts extravaganza.”

The upcoming film marks a departure for Disney’s live action takes on their beloved animated properties, moving further away from its animated counterpart than their recent outings. Adding to the action, Mulan has shed its musical numbers and animalistic sidekicks such as dragon Mushu (voiced by Eddie Murphy) and her reliable lucky cricket, Cri-Kee. In the place, it has added the action sequences, focusing on martial arts drawn from the tradition of Wuxia, a Chinese film genre centered on martial arts heroes in ancient China.

The upcoming film also stars Rosalind Chao as Mulan’s mother; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; and Gong Li as Xianniang.

Watch the trailer above for more. Mulan gets down to business March 27.
