While Mulan may not be considered to be one of the 'classic' Disney princesses, she's certainly one of our favourites.
Headstrong, brave and able to prove herself, Mulan was refreshing compared to the more demure Princesses like Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. And let's not forget the epic songs like "Make a Man" and "Reflection".
However, the new live-action remake will reportedly not feature any of the songs, according to director Niki Caro.
Much to the ire of fans, who were excited by the prospect of singing along to their favourites from the animated film, many took to twitter to express their frustration.

Many fans are irate because not only will be missing out on some catchy-ass Disney songs, but also the remake has been described in an interview with Moviefone as "extremely muscular". Like what does that mean?

Even Caro admits that her kids were horrified by the prospect of Mulan minus the songs, who knows maybe all the fan criticism will mean that Disney change their minds and deliver the film that fans actually want to see.
Currently live-action Mulan is slated for a 2018 release.
