Let's get down to business...because the live-action Mulan has officially been named!
While Disney's modern rendition of the beloved animated movie remains quietly underway [url=http://www.teamravensjerseys.com/Iman-Marshall-Jersey/]Iman Marshall Color Rush Jersey[/url] , the studios finally announced the project's main star on Wednesday: Liu Yifei. The 30-year-old Chinese actress will lead the film as the Hua Mulan, a legendary female warrior who is believed to have taken her father's place in the army.
Yifei joins a production helmed by The Zookeeper's Wife director Niki Caro and executive produced by Bill Kong with producers Jason Reed, Chris Bender and Jake Weiner.
While there's still a long wait until the movie's projected 2019 release, it's time to get to know the film's leading lady. Allow us to introduce her with five facts you need to know:
1. She's been acting for more than a decade.
With her earliest acting credit from 2002 [url=http://www.teamravensjerseys.com/Ben-Powers-Jersey/]Ben Powers Color Rush Jersey[/url] , the star has quite the resumé under her belt. While this Disney role may elevate her to a new level of fame in America, she's already a well-reknowned actress abroad.
2. She can carry a tune.
Of course, there can't be Mulan without some "Reflection." Fortunately, Yifei already has some pipes for if and when it comes time to sing. The actress was reportedly signed to Sony in Japan and released albums.
3. She's a glamour girl.
Considered one of the most beautiful actresses in China [url=http://www.teamravensjerseys.com/Justice-Hill-Jersey/]Justice Hill Color Rush Jersey[/url] , Yifei has served as a brand ambassador for the likes of Dior and Pantene.
4. She's acted alongside some major Hollywood stars.
Yifei is no stranger to acting in English, having starred alongside Jackie Chan in 2008's The Forbidden Kingdom and Nicolas Cagein 2014's Outcast.
5. Her work is acclaimed.
In addition to being a multi-talent, Yifei won the Golden Lotus Award for Best Actress at the Macau International Movie Festival in 2013. (Agencies)
Meghan Markle is saying goodbye to the courtroom and hello to the royal palace!
The 36-year-old actress, who announced her engagement to Prince Harry on Monday [url=http://www.teamravensjerseys.com/Miles-Boykin-Jersey/]Miles Boykin Color Rush Jersey[/url] , is officially leaving Suits after the current seventh season completes its run, USA Network and Universal Cable Productions, the studio that produces the series, announced on Tuesday.
“From all of us at USA Network and Universal Cable Productions [url=http://www.teamravensjerseys.com/Jaylon-Ferguson-Jersey/]Jaylon Ferguson Color Rush Jersey[/url] , we want to send our most heartfelt congratulations to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on their engagement,” the joint statement reads. “Meghan has been a member of our family for seven years and it has been a joy to work with her. We want to thank her for her undeniable passion and dedication to Suits, and we wish her the very best.”
It is unclear if Patrick J. Adams will be joining Markle in an early departure from Suits. Though rumors circulated earlier this month that Adams was eyeing a potential exit, it would make sense as both Adams and Markle’s characters are engaged to be married on the show.
Speculation that Markle would leave Suits first surfaced after her romance with Prince Harry went public in 2016. Now [url=http://www.teamravensjerseys.com/Marquise-Brown-Jersey/]Marquise Brown Color Rush Jersey[/url] , Markle turns her attention from acting to preparations for her upcoming nuptials to the 33-year-old Brit. They are set to get married at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in May 2018.
The couple sat down together for the first time for a post-engagement interview on Monday, where Markle revealed that she doesn’t view her transition to becoming a part of the royal family as her “giving anything up.” “I just see it as a change,” she said during the sit-down with BBC News.
"It's a new chapter, right?" Markle added. "Keep in mind I have been working on my show [Suits] for seven years [url=http://www.teamravensjerseys.com/Maxx-Williams-Jersey/]Black Maxx Williams Jersey[/url] , so we're very fortunate to have had that longevity in a series, and for me, once we hit the 100-episode marker, I thought [url=http://www.teamravensjerseys.com/Kamalei-Correa-Jersey/]Black Kamalei Correa Jersey[/url] , 'You know what? I have ticked this box and I feel very proud of the work I have done there.' It's time to, as [Harry] said, work as a team with you."
