A new name has been added to the growing list of actresses who might snag the lead role in Disney’s live-action remake of “Mulan”.
Cpoplove received a tip from insider casting sources this week which claimed that the company is looking at Eunice Kang to play the highly-coveted character.
Kang is a Canadian independent film actress of Korean descent who appeared in FOX’s “Lucifer”. She’s skilled in muay thai and taekwondo, so it’s not surprising to hear she’s being considered.
In addition to her martial arts prowess, Kang also speaks multiple languages, including Korean, Japanese and Mandarin.
Whether Kang becomes the legendary female heroine is yet to be seen. Last week, following strong speculations that 22-year-old Australian actress Natasha Liu Bordizzo bagged the role, Disney announced that they’re “still in the casting process.”
Nevertheless, it’s safe to expect that Mulan and her love interest will be Asian, or Disney will face the wrath of a fandom since 1998.
Other actresses rumored to play Mulan include Fan Bingbing, Katie Leung, Jamie Chung, Zhang Ziyi and Ting-ting Hu.
