Disney Exec Reacts to Backlash Over 'Mulan' Filming Location in China

The new Disney movie Mulan has been generating backlash after it was discovered that portions of the movie were filmed in a controversial area of China.

The film’s credits include a thank you to Xinjiang authorities, including an entity that is included on the U.S. sanctions list. Uighur Muslims have been detained in mass internment camps in the Xinjiang province.

Missouri’s Republican junior senator, Josh Hawley, sent a letter to Disney condemning the company for “whitewashing the ongoing genocide of Uighurs and other Muslim ethnic minorities during the production of Mulan.”

Now, Disney’s CFO Christine McCarthy is speaking out in response to the backlash.

Yifei Liu Shares Behind-The-Scenes Footage From Her 'Mulan' Wall Walking Scene

Yifei Liu is sharing some behind-the-scenes footage and secrets from Mulan with fans on her Instagram.

The 33-year-old actress revealed what went into getting that wall walking scene perfect and what she did to recooperate after hitting her knees against the beams.

“Thankful for hard shell knee pads…a smile and a cute dog could relieve the pain after I hit the beam with my knees…thanks @gostunts,” Yifei captioned.

In one of the pics in her slideshow, you can see Yifei sitting with oversized ice packs on both of her knees from the stunt.

Over the weekend, fans on social media had got “Boycott Mulan” to trend, bringing up Yifei‘s past comments that sparked major controversy. See what happened here…

If you didn’t see, you can also find out how original Mulan star, Ming-Na Wen, got involved in the movie, too!

Mina-Na Wen Reveals The Original Plan For Her 'Mulan' Cameo

Ming-Na Wen surprised fans over the weekend when they saw her at the end of the new live-action Mulan film.

If you didn’t see, the 56-year-old actress and original voice of the animated Mulan plays the part of “Esteemed Guest” as she introduces her successor, Yifei Liu, to the Emperor.

However, the plan was for her to be in an entirely different scene.

“I was going to be the potential mother-in-law for the matchmaker scene,” she shared with the NY Times.

That didn’t work out “because of the weather, they needed me to be out there for a month just in case” and because of her Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. schedule.

“[They] just threw up their hands: ‘We can’t lose you for a month!’” Ming-Na explained. “I totally understood, and I’m always very Zen about this stuff. I said, ‘Look, if it was meant to me be, it was meant to be. We all tried, and it’s too bad.’”

But the idea wasn’t tossed out, but instead, re-worked with producer Jason Reed and director, Niki Caro.

“[They] came up with this great idea where instead of shooting an entire scene, I’d just make a cameo at the very end to announce Mulan to the emperor,” Ming-Na shared. “I thought that was very appropriate and just wonderful, a little Easter egg where I could pass the baton. And this time, they only needed me there for a week. So it all worked out!”

She also credits Mulan fans for suggesting that she appear in the film.

“I asked my manager and my agent if that would be a possibility because I thought that would be kind of fun. Then I met with Jason and he loved the idea,” she says.

The Original Mulan, Ming-Na Wen, Has a Cameo in the Live-Action Remake!

Ming-Na Wen, the actress who voiced the title role in the 1998 animated movie Mulan, has a cameo in the live-action remake of the film!

Near the end of the film, after Mulan has saved the Emperor of China and defeats the villainous Bori Khan, she is an invited guest at the palace.

A woman, who is credited as “Esteemed Guest,” introduces Mulan to the Emperor… and that’s Ming-Na! Her daughter Michaela is actually in the scene as well.

On the day of the film’s release, Ming-Na took to Instagram to promote the movie. She wrote, “Live-action #Mulan is finally out today on @disneyplus Premiere Access. I can’t wait to see it again!! You will love this spectacular film!”

The singing voice of Mulan in the animated movie was provided by Broadway star Lea Salonga.

Yifei Liu, who plays Mulan in the live-action movie, is a singer and did a cover of “Reflection” in Mandarin. Listen now!

Mulan's Yoson An Waited Almost Two Years To Hear If He Got The Role of Hongui

Yoson An is sharing the unbelieveable story of how he heard he had won the role of Chen Hongui in Disney’s Mulan.

During his interview with The Laughing Place, the 28-year-old actor revealed it took almost two years for him to know if he truly got the role.

“This audition tape came through in– believe it or not– 2016,” Yoson revealed, remembered all he went through for the part. “I’ll tell you a little bit [about] before the audition process, though. I think it was back in 2015, or even late 2014, when I heard through the grapevine that Niki [Caro] was set to direct this. And I was walking back home one day as I was scrolling through my phone, I was like, ‘Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if I was involved in this film?’ And just a little image of realization: “You know what? It’s never gonna happen.”

He continued, “Fast forward to 2016– I did the tape, put it down, sent it through, and I didn’t hear back for a whole year.”

Yoson was convinced that when he didn’t hear anything, he hadn’t gotten the role. But, he was wrong.

“After a couple months, I’m like, ‘I didn’t get this. There’s no way I got this. And whatever, it’s fine.’ But then literally a year later I get an email from my agent going, ‘Hey, remember that tape you put down a year ago? Disney wants to see you again.’”

Yoson went in for another audition over Skype with Niki and casting director Debra Zane. After that, he was then flown to Los Angeles for an in-person audition.

But then it was a waiting game again.

“I didn’t hear back for another nine months,” Yoson laughs. “One day, I sat down at my agent’s office, and my lovely coach Mike sat down with me, and he was like, ‘You got it, bud. You got it.’ And I was like, ‘Really? Really?’ And everything just started unfolding from there. Bit of a long story.”

Yoson‘s character Hongui is Mulan’s equal in the live action film, and takes cues from the animated character Li Shang. Find out why the character was split into two new ones here…
