The live-action film of the same name adapted from Disney's 1998 animated film "Mulan" has recently released its first trailer.
The film is directed by Nikki Caro and joined by the producer of "Monster Hunt". In addition to the main heroine Liu Yifei, the film also includes Jet Li and Gong Li. The trailer also features actress Zheng Peipei. .
This version of "Mulan" and our impression The version of "Mulan" is different. The live-action version of "Mulan" does not directly adapt "Mulan", there is an animation "Mulan" transition between them.
The production cost of this animation was only 70 million US dollars. Although it was based on the story of China’s Southern and Northern Dynasties, it was not released in China, and in 1998The global box office released this year exceeded 300 million US dollars, which is one of the reasons why Disney wants to make a live-action version.
The little friend who has seen the trailer has a very intuitive I feel that this is very similar to the style of domestic costume drama.
Maybe foreign filmmakers think that they understand the "Mulan" story background enough, but in fact it is very monotonous. Nowadays, the style of many domestic dramas is very exquisite, such as the recent release "Chang'an Twelve Hours".
An intuitive feeling is the character dialogue. This is very easy to accept for fans of the 80s and 90s, because there is a "Last Emperor" that is also in English, but more viewers may still not adapt.
Since "Mulan" is a legendary heroine, her surname and birth There is no specific record of the land, so I will not argue here, nor comment on the costumes of a specific age in the movie, to evaluate the characters in the movie.
The heroine Liu Yifei is still amazing. Maybe many movie fans feel that the actors themselves are not performing well, but this kind of feeling is different. Liu Yifei can still bring beauty when the role is riding and archery. This is not easy.
Grandma replacement in animationBecame a sister, played by Vietnamese actor Tang Shana; Mulan's mother is played by Chinese American Zhao Jialing.
Mulan’s father is played by Chinese actor Ma Tai, Many movie fans bluntly said that when his father appeared on stage, he was in a play, because he looked very much like a domestic male star. If you look closely, it is indeed very similar to Mr. Sun Honglei. Do your friends think so?
In addition to Mulan’s relatives, there is also the matchmaker played by Zheng Peipei and the male protagonist Chen Honghui played by Chinese male star An Yousen in the trailer.
The character of Chen Honghui will replace Li Xiang in the animation. The former is a soldier like Mulan in the movie. You can see Mulan using him to practice targets in the movie. The latter Li Xiang is Mulan’s boss in the animation. , The same point is that the two characters eventually become Mulan's lover.
To sum up, what is your intuitive feeling about the live-action version of "Mulan" remade by Disney?
