Another Disney movie is about to get a modern makeover. Mulan
, based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, will be re-done in live action.
This comes after the recent success of Disney’s live-action Cinderella,
which earned $336.2 million in just three weeks
. Alice in Wonderland
also did well earning $1.02 billion and $758.4 million respectively.
set to be a success, who will be cast to play the lead role?
Fans of the first movie are saying Ming-Na Wen, the original voice of Mulan
, is the perfect fit.
“Wow, so many tweets to @Disney announcement for a live-action #Mulan,” Wen wrote on Twitter
. “Thank U4 wanting me 2B in the film! Tweet @DisneyPictures about it! xo.”

Wen, however, is 51, and Mulan is supposed to be a 16-year-old, so it might make more sense to cast a younger actress.
Jamie Chung has experience playing a warrior. The 31-year-old starred in ABC’s Samurai Girl
and played an assassin in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
She’s also already played Mulan on ABC’s Once Upon A Time

If Chung’s swordsmanship isn’t good enough, Arden Cho has also been in some action movies. The 29-year-old scored roles in The Baytown Outlaws
and Olympus has Fallen
and her fans think she is perfect for the role.
“My Twitter is flooded with news of #Mulan, you guys are so sweet. I just hope I’m in the mix! Would be fun to audition, singing + swords = dream come true! Probably the only @disney princess I could ever play, just sayin…” the star shared on Instagram
