Donnie Yen Joins Cast of Disney’s Live-Action “Mulan”

“Ip Man” action star Donnie Yen will join Liu Yifei in Disney’s live-action “Mulan” film. Yifei will play the titular character, while Yen will portray Mulan’s mentor and teacher, Commander Tung.

If you’re not familiar with the character, it’s because Commander Tung is a character made specifically for this live-action adaptation. Yen is known as the main star of the popular “Ip Man” action film Series, and also as the character Chirrut Imwe in Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”.

The live-action Mulan is scheduled to be released by 2020.
