So it seems like Disney fans can rest assured that there will be no more delays in production of Disney’s live-action Mulan reboot. And the preparations for the movie to start filming this July in New Zealand seem to be going to plan. And sources close to Pursue News have confirmed that the budget for this film is going to be $290 million plus.
The film is going be directed by Niki Caro, who directed The Zookeeper’s Wife. Not only is she going to be the fourth female director to ever direct a solo live-action film with a budget of over $100 million, but she will also be on top of the list as the only woman director to help a project with a budget of over $290 million plus.
Pursue News’ sources also had said that the sets are going to be massive and are of an unprecedented scale. Currently, the sets are still in the design stage, so there going to be needing an ample amount of time to be built. But if you saw Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok, the same team that made those sets are building the sets for this Mulan reboot. And, if you saw the behind the scenes video for Thor: Ragnarok, then you know the sets are going to be incredible and very aesthetically pleasing.
Hopefully, Disney will not disappoint the fans with this movie, especially after the several hurdles they have faced since the original release date was supposed to be this year, but was rescheduled for March 27th, 2020. Another thing about the movie is they took out fan-favorite character Li Shang, and replaced him with another male character named Chen Honghui. Honghui was not originally in the 1998 animated film, so the fans should be expecting more changes for this film. But you can stay tuned to That Hashtag Show as more information for this movie will be getting released in the coming months.
