Live-Action Mulan on the way from Disney

Disney just seems to love adapting their animated movies into live-action features. Maybe it has something to do with them destroying the box-office pretty much every time they're released. Or maybe they're out of ideas. I don't know, I'm not here to judge.

Anyway, it's no surprise that they're digging deeper into their animated vault for more live-action gold, with news coming that they're now adapting a live-action feature from the 1998 animated MULAN film. And, honestly? This seems pretty awesome. I haven't really been enamored by their previous live-action adaptations. Even critically-acclaimed darlings, like JUNGLE BOOK, I thought was pretty good, but not great. However, with MULAN, you have the appeal of big battle sequences, badass wushu fight scenes, and an awesome, strong female character at the center. Hell, just having an Asian lead - female or otherwise - is cool enough for a big-budget tentpole film.    

Honestly, MY biggest question is: will that annoying f*cking dragon-thing be in the movie? Because I hope not. 

Disney is pushing to give MULAN a November 2018 release date. They also have a live-action LITTLE MERMAID and CRUELLA starring Emma Stone in the works, among a butt-load of others. 

So what do you guys think? And what animated Disney films do you think would make awesome live-action film?

Extra Tidbit: Donny Osmond was the singing voice for Shang, the love interest in the animated MULAN film.
