Liu Yifei as Fa Mulan
The adaptation of Mulan sis starring Liu Yifei in the lead as Fa Mulan , Yifei is a Chinese-American actress and is not new to the Hollywood industry we have seen her previously in many films like The Forbidden Kingdom and Outcast etc.She is one of the four Dan Chinese actresses that is she is one of the most paid actresses from China.
Mulan has been an inspiration and motivation for all the millennial kids out there especially for girls.Speaking personally I was much moved by the movie myself and I am quite excited to watch the live-action adaptation. The song Reflection hits deep down our hearts and makes us wonder what our inner strengths are capable of and we can accomplish everything only if we have the determination in our minds and hearts.The movie also motivates women to step up for themselves and their families.
