Ming-Na Wen Has One Request for Live-Action 'Mulan' Casting

Ming-Na Wen, who voiced the role of Mulan in the 1998 Disney film, has a request of filmmakers putting together casting for the new live action movie.

When asked what she wants for the actress that will step into the main role, she responded, “That she’s Chinese in her heritage.”

“Even though we’re Pan-Asian, it is specifically a Chinese folklore and I really think that someone with that ethnic background [would] really just add more to the story,” she told ET.

Besides voicing the role in the 1998 animated film, Ming-Na also has voiced Mulan for several other projects over the years. She now plays the role on Melinda May on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

'Mulan' Live-Action Film May Feature Songs After All

Despite reports to the contrary, the live-action remake of Mulan could feature music.

“I don’t know where that’s come from” director Niki Caro told the Los Angeles Times. “We’ve never talked about songs, and no decision has been made.”

It all started when Niki told Moviefone, “From what I understand, no songs right now.”

Some people took that as there definitely won’t be featured songs in the film; however, it sounds like she just meant at this time, they haven’t decided one way or another.

Regardless of the confusion, Niki said, “It is exciting that people are this passionate.”

Some of the most popular songs from Mulan include “Reflection,” “I’ll Make a Man Out of You,” and “Honor to Us All.”

Disney's Live-Action 'Mulan' Movie Might Not Feature Songs

One of the upcoming live-action movies that Disney has in the works is Mulan, but a lot of fans will be upset to hear that there likely will not be songs in the film.

Director Niki Caro recently spoke out about plans for the film.

“Yes, from what I understand, no songs right now, much to the horror of my children,” Niki told Moviefone.

Some of the songs featured in Mulan include “Reflection,” “I’ll Make a Man Out of You,” and “Honor to Us All.”

Niki is currently working with producer Sean Bailey on developing the film. “His sensibility and mine for the material is right in sync. It’s a big, girly martial arts epic. It will be extremely muscular and thrilling and entertaining and moving,” she said.

Niki directed the film The Zookeeper’s Wife, which hits theaters on March 31.
