FIRST LISTEN: Christina Aguilera returns for MULAN soundtrack with new song AND new ‘Reflection’
Christina Aguilera will feature on the motion picture soundtrack for the new live-action MULAN with not just one but TWO songs! She shared a new teaser video yesterday set to the new song titled “Loyal Brave True” (you can hear more of it in the video above) and will also be doing a “reimagined” version of “Reflection” which she first sang for the animated MULAN in 1998.
MULAN is the epic adventure of a fearless young woman who masquerades as a man in order to fight Northern Invaders attacking China. The eldest daughter of an honored warrior, Hua Mulan is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.
A celebrated international cast features in MULAN including: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”
