During the Women’s World Cup Final, Disney had shared a teaser of the upcoming film which is set to star Jimmy Wong as the character “Ling.” The actor began teasing the upcoming film via social media by bringing the attention of fans to the international football competition. Aside from him, the film will also star Jet Li as the Emperor, Jason Scott Lee as Bori Khan, Donnie Yen as Commander Tung and Liu Yifei as the titular role of the warrior princess, Mulan.
