according to niki caro, mulan is gonna be a "big, girly martial arts epic" -_-

I saw as well, and at first I was like lol!

“I haven’t started yet so I can’t give you any real detail,” Caro told ScreenCrush. “But the budget and the location and the story offer such scope to me for an incredible, muscular piece of girly martial arts extravaganza in China. And I can’t wait.”

“I’ve got my little girl, she’s 9,” Caro added. “We’re going to start learning mixed martial arts in preparation.”

the description is so weird and cringy and sounds exactly like the kind of thing a white woman would want for a mulan film. she probably said it like this to capture the interest of everyone, but it’s really only going to excite fellow white women. it could probably have been phrased better because really I don’t know how approach it.
