Is The New Live Action 'Mulan' a Musical?

Is The New Live Action 'Mulan' a Musical?

The first teaser trailer for the live action Mulan debuted earlier today (July 7), and some things seem to be missing.

In the minute and a half long clip, there is no hint at any of the songs from the original animated film, and it has left fans going crazy.

Director Niki Caro opened up in a 2017 interview about whether or not the film would be a musical.

“Yes, from what I understand, no songs right now, much to the horror of my children,” she told Moviefone, adding, “It’s a big, girly martial arts epic. It will be extremely muscular and thrilling and entertaining and moving.”

It is being reported that songs from the animated movie will be included in the new live action remake, but they will be featured as instrumentals, and will NOT be sung by the cast.

Some of the famous songs include, “I’ll Make a Man Out Of You,” “Reflection,” and “Honor To Us All.”

Mulan won’t be the first Disney live action remake to exclude music from it’s animated counterpart. 2015′s Cinderella, starring Lily James and Richard Madden, and 2019′s Dumbo, starring Eva Green and Colin Farrell, were both non-musicals.
