    Edit---Replaced the china trailer with the English version with more scenes plus mushu is in this trailer and looks like the hawk is the witch who can turn human. So can mushu turn human?

    My understanding is that Mushu is the phoenix. Whether it's literally a reimagining of Mushu or a MCU MJ-style thing (a new character inspired by the original) remains to be seen,

    Beyond all the hullabaloo with Mushu, here's an issue that could cause REAL trouble for the live action Mulan:

    Hong Kong protesters call for 'Mulan' boycott after star went public in support of police

    Even Mulan is getting political.

    Liu Yifei, the Chinese-born actress starring in Disney's upcoming live-action "Mulan" remake, waded into the Hong Kong protest controversy on Thursday by expressing support for the city's police, who anti-government demonstrators accuse of using excessive force to quell unrest.

    "I support the Hong Kong police. You can all attack me now. What a shame for Hong Kong," she posted on Weibo, a Twitter-like Chinese social media platform.

    Immediately, people began posting #BoycottMulan on Twitter -- which is banned in China. Hours later, the hashtag was trending in Hong Kong and the United States with 37,700 tweets posted at time of writing. Twitter users accused the actress of supporting police brutality, and called out the fact that she's an American citizen.

    "Liu is a naturalized American citizen. It must be nice. Meanwhile she pisses on people fighting for democracy," one person tweeted.

    Saw a bit about that. Have wondered how it would affect things, if at all.

    I've been keeping an eye on the whole thing in regards to the proposed boycotts and stuff. I wrote my piece here: http://www.fairytalefandom.com/2019/...breakdown.html

    It's possible Liu Yifei only said what she said because she was forced to by the Chinese government.

    That is true. However, people may have trouble understanding that because Liu Yifei (aka Crystal Liu) is technically a naturalized American citizen. She probably still has enough ties to China through family and career that it would be a bad idea to cross the Chinese government.
