New Mulan won't be musical

Disney's new 'Mulan' remake will have one major twist

Disney's intriguing live-action update of Mulan will apparently feature some changes that go beyond switch from animated adventure to flesh and blood storytelling.

'I haven't started yet so I can't give you any real detail, ' Caro added.

So what can we expect from Mulan? "Mulan is clearly an empowered-female story", said Bailey, "but we can also do something new in this reimagining, make it a little more muscular, stronger, with touch of Ridley Scott".

Thus far, the studio's live-action remakes have varied in tone and faithfulness to the original animated films.

One Disney movie that better have songs is Aladdin.

Shots Fired Outside LA County Sheriff's Station
Authorities were responding Monday to reports of shots fired outside a Los Angeles County Sheriff's station in Temple City. Joe Mendoza, while the man was in the station, a deputy learned that he was wanted on a $40,000 felony warrant.

The film is based on a script by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek that was rewritten by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. Beauty and the Beast can also brag about having the seventh-biggest domestic opening for any film, and the biggest outside of summer save for December 2015 opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, not accounting for inflation.

Moreover, Niki Caro is being paired with martial arts producing guru Bill Kong, who previously worked on Oscar-winning martial arts epic Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, so it's unlikely he'd get involved with it if it were a musical. Many have expressed that removing any subtext of gay or bisexual characters would help avoid any future controversies. That should excite many fans of the original, but not bringing the music, at least in some form, would be a mistake. And I can't wait.

And Caro plans on getting some hands-on experience before taking to the directors chair.

Mulan is set to get the Beauty And The Beast treatment with a live action remake, but don't expect any singing. "We wanted to include enough music to satisfy people who grew up w 67 film but not make it a musical or betray action tone", he said at the time.
