Hua Mulan is a more mature take on the Mulan we know, the one where Lea Salonga and Christina Aguilera voiced the titular role 

Hua Mulan, an epic action-drama movie about the legendary Chinese warrior who fights to defend her father, is also among the must-watch movies in the film fest. Chinese superstar Zhao Wei plays the protagonist Hua Mulan, a role which earned her multiple recognitions including awards for Best Actress at the 19th Shanghai Film Critics Awards, 10th Changchun Film Festival and 30th Hundred Flowers Awards. It’s a more mature take of the Disney Mulan we know, but it’s visually stunning and promising.
