The studio says Wednesday that Chinese actress Liu Yifei, who spent part of her childhood in NY, will play the warrior in the live-action epic from director Niki Caro.

According to Hollywood Reporter, a team of casting directors made time to visit five continents and saw almost 1,000 candidates for the lead role, which requires incredible martial arts skills, the ability to speak fluent in English and having the "star quality".

Chinese actress Liu Yifei has been given the tick of approval from Disney fans following accusations of "whitewashing" in Hollywood.

Amid a wave of criticism at Hollywood for "whitewashing" roles, Disney casting directors reportedly focused on finding an ethnically Chinese young woman for Mulan, visiting five continents and reviewing almost 1,000 candidates.

Niki Caro, who most newly helmed The Zookeeper's Wife, is directing Disney's live-action Mulan, which is being molded by Chris Bender, Jason Reed, and Jake Weiner and eyeing a 2019 release.

She is set to play Hua Mulan, a legendary Chinese warrior who takes her aged father's place in the army during the Southern and Northern Dynasty (420-589).

Yifei is one of China's most popular actresses and is known as the "Fairy Sister" because of her delicate beauty and roles in numerous fantasy films. The role is said to require credible martial arts skills, the ability to speak English and star quality. Yufei starred in a number of television dramas throughout the '00s and turned up opposite Jackie Chan in 2008's The Forbidden Kingdom when she was a child actor. She also starred opposite Emile Hirsch in Danish auteur Bille August's period romance The Chinese Widow, which opened the Shanghai International Film Festival in June.
