When all the attention seemed to be directed towards the upcoming release of Disney's live-action The Lion King, Disney threw a curveball with the announced casting of Halle Bailey as Ariel in a retelling of The Little Mermaid seemingly taking some its limelight.

Surprising us once again and capitalising on the current interest, Disney have unannouncedly dropped the first trailer for Mulan, set to be released on 27 March 2020, marking the next entry in the ever-growing live-action franchise.

First the positives...
