Walt Disney Company has confirmed that Kapamilya actress Kim Chiu has been selected to take part in a Disney project featuring its popular Princess characters in Southeast Asia.
Rumors of Chiu’s part in the project, a 2015 calendar featuring Disney characters, circulated online late last month when photos of the actress as Mulan from the 1998 animated film surfaced.
In her interview with ABS-CBN News, Chiu confirmed that she indeed suited up as the Disney Princess and said that she considers this as an overwhelming and a big achievement in her life.
“Achievement ko siya sa buhay, childhood dream ko maging isa sa mga Disney Princess!” Chiu said. “Nung in-offer sa akin, nakakatuwa na nakakaiyak. ‘Totoo ba na gagawin niyo akong Mulan? Sobra akong saya and overwhelmed ‘yung puso ko dahil isa ako sa pinili nilang gumanap ng Mulan and excited ako maipakita ko ‘to sa lahat for next year.”
More details on this in the coming months will be shared by Walt Disney.
