Disney to Turn "Mulan" Into Live-Action Film

Sometimes, Disney underwhelms me, what with the lackluster Alice in Wonderland live-action Tim Burton movie (which gave us the eye-searing sequence of Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter break dancing for no DOGGONE reason).

Then there are times when Disney will surprise me. First, it was with their announcement of animated film Moana. Now it’s with their announcement that animated classic (and one of my all-time favorites) Mulan will become a live-action film. My reaction to this news is the same reaction Mulan and co. had to Shang lifting those clay pots in the air with his staff, only to smash them with eloquence and precision. (Hence, the cover picture for this post.)

New images and trailer from "Peanuts" captures the Schulz magic

In the post about Moana, I write that hearing the film will be computer animated is a bit of a bummer since I can already see the 2D animated film in my head. I just like 2D animation better. The only way I can watch 3D animation is if its used in a non-boring fashion or has a unique look to it, like The Book of Life (wooden puppets), Toy Story (using the technology to enhance toys’ already fragile and fabric-plastic existence), or the upcoming film, Peanuts.
