Christina Aguilera‘s voice is still breathtaking 22(!) years after first releasing “Reflection” for the Mulan soundtrack. Check out this epic new rendition, complete with footage from the new live-action film starring Yifei Liu as Mulan.
Via Disney, which premieres the live-action version on Disney+ next month, here are a few more details:
When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father. “Mulan” features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”
As a reminder, here’s her original 1998 version for comparison. So much more depth and substance. Can’t wait for this new film!
