The first Official Trailer for Disney's upcoming live-action Mulan is here, & it's awesome. I am not a fan of the original animated film. I felt it was a story of a girl turned warrior with no real evidence of which contained in the film. I’m not talkin' Kill Bill, but at least a little Ninja Turtle martial arts action could've worked. That why when I heard they were going the martial arts epic route with the remake I was totally intrigued. This trailer was everything I wanted from this adaptation. I absolutely loved it. They're really talong this seriously, & first & foremost it's a martial arts epic. I can’t wait for this film. It's got giant names in martial arts for years with Jet Li & Donnie Yen, two of my favorites, & according to the synopsis even, is staying closer to the original content: “When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father. “Mulan” features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”” I’m super pumped for this. Crazy considering it's essentially a remake of a film I don’t really care for. How bout y’all? In or no? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
"Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney and Pixar’s Onward introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there. Pixar Animation Studios’ all-new original feature film is directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae—the team behind Monsters University.” That's the synopsis for the first official trailer for Onward, releasing in theaters on March 6, 2020, & honestly I'm not really feeling this one. Great cast attached, but this doesn't really even feel like a Pixar film to me. It could be great. Judging by just the synopsis & trailer though, it's nothing I'm really excited for. While it looks cute, not only was I not intrigued, it failed in its many attempts to make me laugh. The only thing that really got me was the unicorn gag. I loved that. I just couldn't help but keep thinking this felt like it came out of another studio, like DreamWorks. Hopefully before this comes out I'll see something that gets me excited. What about y'all? I'm curious to see if this did anything for anyone else. Put it in the comments, like, & share.
