Kim Chiu has turned from “chinitaprincess” and “Primetime Princess” into a Disney princess by portraying the cross-dressing, sword-wielding warrior’s daughter Mulan.
The Walt Disney Company confirmed in a statement: “We confirm that Kim Chiu is part of an upcoming Disney project in Southeast Asia. We will share more details on this in the coming months.”
The Walt Disney animated film Mulan was released in 1998 and was based on the story of the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan. The movie follows the story of Mulan as she joins the army in guise of a man to stop his father from joining the war.
On January 2, Kim shared a clip of her photo shoot for a Disney Asia project, where she will portray the role of Mulan.
