The new trailer is widely praised, but the film does face strong opposition from many because of lead actor Liu Yifei's support of the Hong Kong police after violent protests.

Disney's live-action "Mulan" shared the final trailer during this year's Super Bowl, reminding viewers that the movie hits theaters on March 27th. In this powerful, action-packed final trailer, we are exposed to more sword-welding and a stronger focus on good versus evil as Mulan goes against Gong Li's shapeshifting villainess.

The very first trailer, published in December 2019, Mulan promises to keep her nearest and dearest safe. Quick-thinking, Mulan fires a canon with causes an avalanche.

Another user referenced the deadly new coronavirus that originated in the mainland Chinese city of Wuhan, Liu's birthplace.

But perhaps the hugest difference will be the absence of Mushu, Mulan's talking dragon companion, voiced brilliantly by Eddie Murphy in the 90s animation.

New Zealander Niki Caro, who directed Mulan, at a presentation of the Disney live-action film in Madrid last month. The film will be released on March 27.

When the emperor of China demands that a man from every family join the Chinese imperial army, Mulan disguises her gender so that she can take the place of her sick father. In addition to these actors, the cast list of the upcoming film also includes Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Yoson An as Cheng Honghui, and Jet Li as the Emperor.

The plot is based on an epic journey that will transform Mulan into an honoured warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation and her proud father.
