The live-action remake of Disney’s 1998 animated film Mulan has found its male lead for the legendary Chinese hero.
The Mulan live-action remake, which has been in pre-production for several years, announced in November 2017 that Chinese actress Liu Yifei (劉亦菲), also known as Crystal Liu, will be playing the female hero, who dressed as a man to replace her father in the war. In April 2018, Donnie Yen (甄子丹) was announced to star as Mulan’s mentor.
This week, Disney confirmed that it has cast New Zealand actor Yoson An as Mulan’s love interest. Yoson is a rookie actor, which previous experience in action films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, Megalodon, and Mortal Engines. Yoson holds a black belt in karate and a freestyle wrestler.
Yoson will be playing Chen Honghui, a confident and hot-blooded new army recruit who lands on the same team as Donnie and Crystal.
