18 Sep – Hua Mulan's tale is one that has been retold and adapted for the big screen many times, be it in animated or live-action version. Not surprisingly, most of these come from China, where the legendary warrior's story originated.
Now China is all set to release yet another movie based on Mulan, this time as an animated film that goes by the title "Kung Fu Mulan".
Mtime.com reported that the domestically-produced film will open in China this 3 October, in conjunction with the National Day of the People's Republic of China.
With many Chinese citizens left disgruntled by the recent live-action version from Disney, which opened to mixed response in China and brought in only US$23.2 million on its opening weekend there, the upcoming animated film could fare better.
