'Mulan' Dream Casting: Who Should Play the Disney Princess in the Live-Action Movie?

It was just announced earlier today (March 30) that fan-favorite Disney cartoon Mulan would be made into a live-action movie!

Since the news broke, fans have been wondering who could take on the leading role of Mulan, who disguises herself as a man so she can take her father’s place in the army and go to war. With the help of her trusty dragon sidekick Mushu, she becomes a skilled warrior and, eventually, one of the country’s greatest heroines.

We here at put together a list of some actresses we think would be great in the role!

    I love Kristin Kreuk but she isn’t fully asian !

  • Baseliner

    at least a leading role for asian. don’t care who

  • Lacey

    What about that girl that came out alongside charlie hunnam in pacific rim? I think here name is Minko idk her last name

  • Princess Leia Hoelscher

    Zhang Ziyi is beautiful for Mulan. Michelle Yeoh could be her mother. Gong Li as the fortune teller. Donnie Yen as Shang or even someone that is not known. I am interested in who will be in this movie.

  • mandyz

    Rinko Kikuchi. She would be great, Idc if she’s Japanese and not Chinese. As long as it’s not a white girl lol but I think they should choose a Chinese actress in the end out of respect to their culture.

  • Lola

    She’s japanese, it’d be racist to cast a japanese person for a very ethnic chinese role.

  • Lola

    Jenna Ushkowitz is korean not chinese, so let’s not

  • 55vineyard

    Can I vote for none of the above? Disney has always been greedy since Walt is gone not sure about Roy. So I would not go see the movie, since I do not have a child to please.

  • FerCat

    Argota is of Malay stock. It’s like the difference between South African and Arabian. Not ALL Asians look alike!

  • FerCat

    They wouldn’t mind her so much. But they would be damned pissed with Argota. Like hiring a white guy to play a black guy.

  • Malida

    an asian please.

  • Minoz

    Li Bingbing for Mulan. Very stunning and she is great in Chinese Martial arts.

  • Just Saying

    they cast a chinese actress to play a japanese geisha in Memoirs of a Geisha and it turned out just fine. More than fine I would say.

  • Francis Diones



  • lilah_lilah

    How is Ziyi Zhang not a “real Asian”? She is part of the list.

  • tia maria

    Whoever they cast has to be able to sing but honestly don’t see the point in a live action mulan film.

  • Azim Esmail

    Jamie Chung or Zhang Ziyi. Or maybe one of the actresses from the Neflix show, Marco Polo.

  • Karma

    Jennifer Lawrence !!! :D

  • Franck

    Zhang Ziyi or Kristin Kreuk would be perfect!

  • Li

    An unknown or unfamiliar face would be nice. There are more Asian actresses than the ones we keep seeing.

  • beautylover

    I see your point but remember how a lot of people criticized Kreuk in Street fighter for not being fully asian ? yes that movie was a totale flop but i don’t see why it got that much hate worst movies are getting acclaimed these days !

  • cancertwin2

    I’m all for my girl Jamie Chung but I don’t know if she can sing.
    but as long as she’s Asian, I’ll be fine.

  • FerCat

    More likely from the smug US audience. I think the Chinese by enlarge won’t mind her too much. For the most part she still looks Chinese. Well, post plastic surgery Chinese anyway. But of course it’s still better to get a mainlander.

  • FerCat

    It’s easy to think Zhang Ziyi. But what do you think of her acting?

  • Dory Phore

    Jamie Chung.

  • Dory Phore
  • FerCat

    Why, Because JLaws eyes are super tiny?

  • Thiago Oliveira

    Kristin Kreuk, of course!

  • Thiago Oliveira

    People say she is very white, but the truth is that the protagonist will be American or Canadian or British, maybe. That is, will be a descendant and not a Chinese. For me Kristin would be a good choice.

  • Yupi

    My own choice is Kristin Kreuk – she is truly Disney chinese princess – her face, expression, her fit look, act warlike sometimes- all is perfect

  • JSDA

    Plus she isn’t a very good actress. Nice singer though.

  • JSDA

    Put a filter on the camera and give it to Ming-Na Wen again.

  • kikokayyy

    Ziyi Zhang is always the one and only for me!!!! But she said she wouldn’t play in any martial art/action movies any more. What a pity!! Crouching tiger–Hero–House of flying daggers–The grandmaster are all the best martial art movies. Ziyi is superb, and unique.

  • skytowerg .

    Malese Jow, from the series Flash, you can check her singing

  • Mr0011011 .

    I would rather see Mulan done again than Cinderella.

  • Mel Jervoso

    Kristin Kreuk! She has the moves..the talent &the physique of being a Mulan!

  • Luke

    Kristen Kreuk will be Perfect to play MULAN! She is smart Hot sexy and a very great actress!

  • Oreo Rach

    Why Constance Wu is not in the list? She’s legit perfect for Mulan. She’s Chinese and a very good actress as well. Plus, she is really pretty.

  • Matilda

    Me. Duh. No but really I will be so mad if the actress turns out to not be asian. I like these actresses but they look waaaaay old. Mulan is 16.

  • Sabri Na

    I persanlly think that the korean actress Shin Min Ah should be Mulan.
    She is young, beutiful and a very good actress. for those who doesent know who she is , here is a link ;)
