  • Disney's Live-Action 'Mulan' Casts Liu Yifei As The Lead, So Here's Everything To Know About The Chinese Actor

Yifei is also known as Crystal Liu as well as "Fairy Sister" in China - a nickname she got thanks to her angelic appearance and grace.

Liu YiFei has been cast in the titular role of Disney's live-action MULAN, Tracking Board has confirmed. She has appeared in numerous films and television dramas.

As well as her many acting credentials, including critically acclaimed performances in "The Night Peacock" and "The Chinese Widow", Liu is also an established singer, with two albums under her belt.

The story is based on the true legend of Hua Mulan, who posed as a man in order to lead her late father's army in fifth century China.

Understood in China as a model and vocalist, the 30-year-old Yifei has showed up in "The Forbidden Kingdom" with Jackie Chan and "Pariah" with Nicolas Cage.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News. Liu also now serves as brand ambassador for Dior, Tissot, Garnier, and Pantene.

A source close to the film's production told Forbes contributor Rob Cain that Liu had managed to win the role of Mulan by "working hard and delivering a great audition".

Disney has found its actress to play the title role in the live action adaptation of Mulan.

The original animated version in 1998, voiced by Ming-Na Wen, Eddie Murphy and B.D. Wong, earned US$304.3 million (S$409 million) worldwide as well as Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations.

We're investing our faith in Liu Yefei, and hoping (despite our regret that Disney couldn't hire a woman of Asian background to helm Mulan) that the directing-producing team of Niki Caro and Bill Kong instills the project with the right recipe of perspectives to make it as beloved as its forebear.
