Starring Liu Yifei, Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, and Jet Li, it follows the epic journey that unfolds after Hua Mulan decides to disguise herself as a man to replace her father in the Imperial Chinese Army. As she strives for honor and glory in the battle against the Huns, she must also keep her true identity hidden from her superiors and comrades.
