She’ll bring honor to us all in portraying Disney’s Chinese warrior.

It has been reported by CNN that as confirmed by Disney, actress Liu Yifei will be taking on the lead role in the live-action film.

The film is set to be premiered in 2019, and is “based on the 1998 animated feature film that grossed more than $300 million worldwide,” according to the same article.
