The first reactions to the live action remake of Mulan are here - and they're really positive.
The film, which officially hits cinemas in Ireland at the end of this month, is the latest Disney classic to be getting the live action treatment.
And while there are some changes compared to the animated classic - like sadly, Mushu won't be there - people have praised the "exciting" and "vibrant" remake.
Following the film's official premiere on Monday night, critics took to social media to share their thoughts - and it looks like it is good news for fans of Mulan.
People praised the 2020 take on the film for its nods to the 1998 animated classic, while one fan noted that it was a "more mature Disney film."
Oh, and one person even said it was "one of the best live-action adaptations of a Disney animated classic".
Yeah, we're definitely intrigued.

#Mulan is exciting, vibrant, emotional, and different from the animated version. It's definitely its own thing, which I dug - a more mature Disney film, featuring stunning production design & fight choreography. Director Niki Caro & star Liu Yifei are the big stand-outs, imo pic.twitter.com/p6IEQUDNBu

#Mulan is one of the best live-action adaptation of a Disney animated classic. It honors the 1998 film and the ballad by modernizing themes of female empowerment and iconic scenes, while also standing out w/ great cinematography & battle sequences are reminiscent of Wuxia epics. pic.twitter.com/2DUjzX1M1h

#Mulan is the best of the Disney live-action remakes since Cinderella — I didn’t even miss the songs. Finds new notes in a story we already know while delivering gorgeous action, heart, and humor. Liu Yifei is ???

I was lucky enough to be able to see #Mulan. And I was shocked by how much I loved it. It delved deeper into classic themes of family & female empowerment than I expected. I cried many times. I felt like my culture was treated with the utmost respect. And the cast was fantastic

#Mulan is a gorgeous film that pays homage to the ballad of its origin, and Yifei Liu gives a fantastic performance.
Songs and Mushu are missed, but other adaptation changes serve the story well and fit the tone. (PS. Yoson An is a great not-Shang & the love story still works.) pic.twitter.com/3ICOKKL2jb
