Disney’s live-action Mulan has found its director

The saga of the dueling live-action Mulan movies has taken another step forward, with Variety reporting that Disney’s version of the classic Chinese tale has tapped Niki Caro to direct. Caro—who’s also apparently on the list of directors the company’s eyeing for its upcoming Captain Marvel movie—is best known for her 2002 coming-of-age story Whale Rider.

Taking on a job that was initially offered to Ang Lee, Caro will be facing off against Sony’s version of the story of legendary, secretly female Chinese soldier Hua Mulan. That film is being directed by Game Of Thrones’ Alex Graves, and will allegedly be much more of a war movie; it’ll be interesting to see how Graves’ bloody style contrasts with Caro’s, whose other recent projects include North Country and McFarland, USA. Disney’s Mulan is expected to hit theaters on November 2, 2018.
