This comes after Disney said they plan to do a live-action version of 'The Lion King'.

These aren't the first animated turned real-action remake for Disney. They've relaunched 'Maleficent', 'Cinderella' and the 'Jungle Book'.

In March, the studio will release the anticipated live-action version of 'Beauty and the Beast'. Emma Watson is set to play Belle, but who will play Mulan?

The studio is launching a global casting search for a Chinese actress to play the part.

Hollywood has often been targeted for "whitewashing" characters. An online petition petition called on Disney to cast Asian actors for 'Mulan'.

'Mulan' is set to hit theaters in November 2018.
