This looks pretty good. I know I'm in the minority but I like that there is no singing - they are actaully going to do something different with the story. Sure, I appreciate having Reflection playing as an instrumental and those little nods, but I prefer this to the straight remake.

    It looks really good! I'm not usually a fan of live-action remakes of anmated classics, but I would watch this one.

    Here's an interesting take:


    The writer is originally from Hong Kong and is working on her Ph.d at King's College London. Her criticism is that it's meant to pander to mainland China by emulating their style of historical drama rather than Disney style magic.

    I'm fine with their removing the music if this goes in a slightly different direction from the animated film. A live-action version would probably play better without songs anyway.

    But truthfully, isn't Disney basically pandering to all groups at this point? More female faces in Star Wars, plus they turned the Force Awakens and Rogue One into the United Nations. Princess and the Frog helped Disney Parks' Human Resources division with two face character issues (as did the animated Mulan, come to think of it).
