DisInsider is reporting that the live action version of Mulan will go through four months of extensive reshoots five months before its scheduled premier.
According to the report, a test screening of the flick did not go well and that significant battle sequences will be reshot.
However, Comicbook.com reports that an official account from Chinese media Sina states the reshoots will only last one or two weeks, which it says is quite common.
“We heard that Mulan would start additional photography, but the scale of the work is ‘very common for most Hollywood blockbusters,’ wrote the account Tracking Hollywood wrote. “The team wouldn’t add new scenes or change a whole scene in this movie, which means it’s not extensive. It would last only one or two weeks, not four months.”
Both DisInsider and Comicbook.com reported that attendees at Disney’s D-23 Expo responded positively and enthusiastically to five minutes of footage from Mulan previewed at the convention.
Mulan stars 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.
