They may be getting down to business to defeat the Northern invaders, but they will not be breaking out into song. Unlike previous live-action remakes such as Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin , the cast of the new Mulan will not be performing songs from the beloved animated original. When director Niki Caro first mentioned in an interview in that there will not be singing in Mulan , the fans were not pleased.

On Air Now
Disney is remaking its animated hit Mulan into a live-action film in the vein of Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin , and we're prepared for the new take on the classic story to make some changes. That's the point of a remake, right? While not having certain characters and adding in new ones, as well as tweaking main events, is all well and good, part of what made us fall in love with the original film was its incredible soundtrack. So, will the new film, due out in , be a musical?
Directed by Niki Caro, the remake will be the same story as the musical. Based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, it follows the story of a girl impersonating a man in order to fight in the Chinese military, and ward off a Hun invasion. But will this live-action remake feature any of the original songs? Or any music at all? The movie was originally scheduled for release in December this year, but has since been delayed.
