  • Mulan will be getting the live action treatment

  • Sony is handling it

  • 90,000 have signed the petition

  • “Whitewashing implies that people of colour cannot be heroes (although they may at times be villains or supporting characters), leaving it far more difficult for countless children around the world to see themselves in the stories they love and think that they too can make a difference,”

  • The cast is said to be mostly chinese

  • Reports suggest that this many be a more gritter and violent, aimed at adults and not children
