In case you haven’t heard already, the biggest news out of the Disney Universe this week was that Disney is now developing a live action ‘Mulan’, thanks to the success of ‘Cinderella’ and what I’m sure will be the best movie ever, ‘Beauty And The Beast’. Mulan is in my top three Princesses of all time (with Belle and Pocahontas if you’re curious), so I’m wasting no time creating my dream cast for this film.
1. Mulan // Arden Cho – If you haven’t been watching ‘Teen Wolf’ on MTV you probably don’t know how Arden is, but trust me, the girl would make a great Mulan. Not only does she have the acting chops, but she’s also a singer/song writer, which makes me feel pretty confident that she could give even Christina Aguilera a run for her ‘Reflection’ based money.
2. Mushu // Kevin Hart – This is pretty straight forward. Because as much as I don’t want to admit that Eddie Murphy isn’t this generation’s Eddie Murphy… Kevin Hart is this generation’s Eddie Murphy.
3. Shang // Harry Shum Jr. – You probably know him from Glee, if you know him from anything at all… but again, that just means he’s proven he can sing. Give him a few months in the gym, and I’m 100% sure he can pass as a army captain who can also belt a show tune.
What do you think of my choices? Who would you cast in the upcoming ‘Mulan’?
