‘Mulan’ is Disney’s First Live-Action Remake to Receive PG-13 Rating

Mulan has received a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America, making it the first of Disney’s live-action remakes to receive a rating over PG.  The film received the elevated rating due to the “sequences of violence” depicted in the film.

All previous live-action remakes from Disney have received a G or PG rating, with 2017’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales being the most recent film to have a PG-13 rating.

When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father.

Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.

Mulan features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”

Disney’s Mulan hits theaters on March 27, 2020.
