Get ready for a Hun invasion, because the Disney classic animated film Mulan is reportedly going to be turned into a live-action movie.

After Cinderella's huge box office success, it's no wonder 1998's Mulan, directed by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook, is next to join the ranks of animated classics that have had live-action remakes, such as Beauty and the Beast and Dumbo.

If you're not familiar with the story (as if!), Mulan is about a young woman who disguises herself as a man so she can take her father's place in the Chinese army and fight the invading Huns. Fun fact: the film is actually based on a true story.

For now, the questions we're all asking are who will play the beloved heroine? And General Shang? And what about Mushu the talking dragon? BuzzFeed has a few suggestions that we agree with. We've got high expectations for this one, so it better be good!
