Disney Plans Live-Action 'Mulan'

Charging ahead with its current strategy of live-action retellings, Disney is paying a return visit to "Mulan."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio bought a script from Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek that centers on Hua Mulan, the legendary warrior from ancient China who inspired the 1998 animated hit.

Disney's original film grossed more than $304 million worldwide, and inspired a direct-to-video sequel "Mulan II."

With the success of "Alice in Wonderland," "Maleficent" and, currently, "Cinderella," the studio appears in a rush to line up live-action retellings of its animated classics. On the horizon: "The Jungle Book," "Beauty and the Beast," an "Alice in Wonderland" sequel and "Dumbo."
