Director Jingle Ma’s uber lavish live-action period epic Mulan - starring Vicki Zhao (Red Cliff; 14 Blades; Shaolin Soccer) and Jaycee Chan (Twins Effect 2) - is heading for a UK DVD release, and what’d ya know we’ve got the UK trailer to with it. Mulan will be released as a two disc Ultimate Edition DVD, and single disc Blu-ray, by Cine Asia on 21st June.
Synopsis: When the emperor issues a decree that all families in the Northern Province must defend their homeland against the barbarian Rouran hordes, Mulan, a young girl from a military family without a male heir, disguises herself as a male soldier and enlists in the army rather than expose her aging father to the horrors of the battlefield. As the conflict develops and the invading armies close in, Mulan’s remarkable courage and insights into the art of war see her elevated through the ranks until she is promoted to the position of general, establishing herself as a true military leader willing to sacrifice everything to defend her nation and bring honour to her family. Her only weakness is her affection for one of her comrades, Wentei a fellow general who realises that their mutual emotional attachment could lead to their downfall on the battlefield.
