Take the first look at your new Mulan. She is huge in China, and has also featured in a number of Hollywood films including The Forbidden Kingdom and Outcast. "It will be extremely muscular and thrilling and entertaining and moving", the film's director, Niki Caro, who helmed last year's "The Zookeeper's Wife", told MovieFone about her vision for the film.
