Disney Gets Down To Business To Find A Chinese Actress For 'Mulan'
An online petition has over 100,000 signatures asking Disney not to whitewash the live-action remake.By Katherine Biek | October 5, 2016
Disney is getting down to business — well, the casting business, that is.
The studio is on the hunt to find a Chinese actress to play the title role in its upcoming live-action version of "Mulan."
Now the film and its animated counterpart are based off a Chinese legend, so it makes sense to cast a Chinese actor as Mulan — but that hasn't stopped social media users from voicing their frustration over Disney possibly casting a white actress instead.
