List Rules Vote up the actresses you think would be best as the title character in Disney's Mulan remake.

Let’s take a moment and talk Mulan fantasy casting. There’s a lot of excitement surrounding the casting for the live action version of the Chinese legend Mulan. Her story is one of empowerment and being true to oneself, so whoever scores the title role of the film needs to be strong, sincere, and okay with chopping off a sizable chunk of her hair (hopefully sans sword).

Casting Disney's live action Mulan movie is sure to be a tall order for Disney, since there’s already a deal of controversy surrounding the movie. An early script of the film featured a white love interest for Mulan, one who helps the Chinese Imperial Army defeat the Huns. Given Hollywood's tendency to whitewash films that feature Asian characters (looking at you Ghost in the Shell), fans were upset. As a result, Disney issued a statement saying that the original script is just a jumping-off point and that most of the primary roles, including the title role, would be played by Chinese actors and actresses. Here are some of the most popular Chinese actresses who could play Mulan in the remake.
