It's being reported today that Li Shang has been cut out of the Mulan movie.
This is due to a casting notice sent out months ago that did not include Li Shang but included a new character Chen Honghui as his replacement.
The casting notice has just been confirmed to be real because Donnie Yen was cast as Commander Tung who is a new character that is included in the casting notice.
People are also saying Li Shang was cut from the movie because he is popular in the LGBT community.
