Let's Cast the Live Action Mulan

By now you've probably heard that Hollywood has set its sights on a live-action adaptation of the 1998 Disney classic Mulan (arguably one of the best fictional heroines ever), and I am thrilled/concerned. Thrilled because it's one of the best Disney films ever and concerned because of the same reason (because no one knows how to mess up a good thing better than Hollywood). I can only hope that the powers that be stay as true to the original film as possible.

But since I generally find it hard to rely on "hope," I've decided to combine forces with you, the reader, by asking who you think should be cast in this new version of Mulan.

To get you started, I've included my own wishlist of actors who I think would be great for this production:

Steven Yeun (in my head, he is Shang)

Devon Aoki (as Mulan)

Jamie Chung (as Mulan)

Ken Watanabe (as Fa Zhou)

Daniel Dae Kim (as Shan Yu)

Michelle Yeoh (as Fa Ling)

Rick Yune (as Shan Yu)

John Cho (as Mushu)

Who are your picks?

I wish Devon Aoki would become a thing...I thought she would after 2 Fast 2 Furious...and then she disappeared.

For the love of God, not Jaime Chung! I actually really like Devon Aoki. and 10000000 times yes to Steven Yeun.

I would like Ming-Na Wen to be Mulan's mother since she voiced her in the cartoon.
