Since everyone online is doing dream casts of Disney’s live action Mulan , I figured we should do one, too. Who would you nominate? To get you started, here’s mine:
Mulan: Ni Ni
- She’s gorgeous #Cfensi, # Ni Ni, #Gorgeous + Beautiful
- She rides on whales and kisses lions, so she’s clearly a Disney princess.
- She’s in the right age group (sorry, Ming-na Wen and Lucy Liu)
- Her English is good
- It’ll answer jjss08’s questions about how she would look in hanfu
- She’s only the most photogenic Chinese actress ever
Shang: Wang Leehom
He can sing, he can dance, he can act, he’s good-looking, he has abs, he can fight, his English is perfect, he’s perfect, why isn’t he cast yet? (P.S. Whatever happened to that rumor about him and Zhang Ziyi starring in Disney’s Mulan and why didn’t it come true? )
Younger alternative : Aarif Rahman, take everything about Wang Leehom, including age, and multiply by some fraction strictly less than one.
Shawn Dou, who’s a better actor than Aarif Rahman and Wang Leehom. Also he’s Canadian so English shouldn’t be an issue.
Other alternative: M.I.C. Yaoyao, because I think he has decent pronunciation(?) and he’s gorgeous. Mostly because I’m just in a M.I.C. phase. Plus, maybe then Xiaoxin can play Mulan since their teacher sung as Mulan before.
That’s all I can think of now, what are your thoughts?
