Zhang Ziyi's Mulan Poster Looks Awfully Familiar

Zhang Ziyi's new movie Mulan, the Legend of a Woman Warrior (Jin Guo Ying Xiong) may be based on a sixth-century Chinese folk story, but the poster would lead you to believe it originated in 1998 alongside a dragon played by Eddie Murphy. Since I want this movie to be great (and since Speed director Jan de Bont will direct an English-language version), let's take a look at this poster and point out some strange likenesses.


It looks a little hand-drawn anyway, but match up the title font and color scheme and I'd say we have a Dinsey-riffic poster on our hands. Plus, is that really Zhang Ziyi?



Hopefully Mulan's "legend" will supersede all comparisons to Ming-Na characters. That includes the Disney Mulan and that other misbegotten warrior Chun Li. Chris Klein, you are not forgiven.

    i think it is actually a real version of disney posters. Look at the title font, the facial form and the eyes of the two, they are quite the same.

    You gotta be kidding. The posters don't look at all alike. A non-story

  • BEE says:

    That's because Disney is investing into the movie. This IS the live action version to DISNEY'S Mulan
