Probably a typo, 7th century seems right.

 

Confirmed, it's a typo:

I'm happy about decision to place it in 7th century, it's roughly the setting of the original story and avoids any thorny politics. (Means the opponents will not be people who are currently an identifiable ethnic group.)

That was obvious ;)

 

Still, I can't wait to see the main actress :) It's great from Disney to do that from China with a Chinese casting, that will make this very different from all other Disney movies in every way and will strongly increase its success in China.

Isn't the Canadian potential of Korean descent?

 

I know Asians are all the same to some of y'all. But a Korean playing Mulan is not gonna cut it, especially for the Chinese market. 

 

Not to mention the relationship between Korea-China is kinda strained right now, with the media/entertainment ban and all.

Disney said the entire cast would be Chinese, if she has no Chinese background she's unlikely to be chosen.

It's slang for obsessively support. Think "fanboy." ;)

The above is correct, but it might help for you to know the origin of the word is combining "stalker" with "fan". So stalker-level fanboy.

That Natasha girl is only half-chinese?  No way she gets it.  

 

It's a joke right? Having Chinese roots is fine enough.

Is This 22-year-old Australian Actress Disney’s Choice for Mulan?

 

img_1167_1200x750

 

Chinese social media is abuzz with speculation that 22-year-old Australian actress Natasha Liu Bordizzo has scored the role of Hua Mulan in Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation.

Bordizzo made her big screen debut last year in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (卧虎藏龙:青冥宝剑), the sequel to the 2000 hit, in which she played the young martial arts acolyte “Snow Vase.”

Rumors started spreading on Chinese social media last week that the young actress had nabbed the role of the legendary female heroine from an ancient Chinese ballad.

The speculation got to such a fever pitch that the official Disney Weibo eventually weighed into the discussion on Friday to say the final decision on the role of Mulan had not been made and that they were “still in the casting process.”

Neither Bordizzo nor her representatives responded to queries from China Film Insider about her potential involvement in the project.

The former law student from Sydney is also a black belt band one in taekwondo and has trained in kempo karate — skills which she says helped her get her role in Crouching Tiger 2.

No doubt those abilities would also come in handy in depicting Hua Mulan, the legendary female warrior who fought in male disguise as a general in her father’s stead in China 2,000 years ago.
