Mulan Live-Action Reaches Over 80k in Petition for Asian Actress

According to VC Post, an announcement has been made by Movie Guide that an American Actress will be playing the lead role. After the announcement has been made, there have been numerous controversial discussions on this topic.

According to iSchoolGuide, a petition has been made to clearly voice opinions that an Asian actress should be casted instead of an American actress claiming that

The lead role has not been confirmed although there have been rumors that Jenna Uskowitz, actress from Glee, or Ming Na Wen, voice actor of the animated version of Disney’s Mulan, were linked to the role.
