After much anticipation, Disney has dropped a teaser for “Mulan,” the dwell-motion edition of the Chinese warrior epic premiering future month on Disney+. The movie was migrated to the streaming platform soon after its theatrical release was postponed indefinitely over coronavirus concerns.

Like its animated counterpart, the Niki Caro-directed motion picture depicts a woman played by Yifei Liu masquerading as a guy to quit the Hun invasion of China when her father’s much too infirm to combat. Having said that, from the appears of the trailer, the motion will be ratcheted up to Himalayan heights.

The a person-moment clip depicts Mulan kung fu-ing a variety of baddies a la “Crouching Tiger, Concealed Dragon” though off-screen villains paradoxically shade her for being a woman.

“I will bring honor to us all,” intones the titular character right before the screen fades to black.
