Since the live-action remake of Mulan was first announced, fans of the classic '90s animated Disney film have been waiting anxiously to find out who would play the title role of the legendary Chinese heroine who disguises herself as a man to serve in the army in her aging father's place.

The 30-year-old has been acting since 2003, and has numerous roles to her credit. (She's also a singer!) The news of Liu's casting comes as a relief, especially with allegations and concerns about whitewashing in the film's spec script

According to Variety, the live-action Mulan movie is set to be released in theaters sometime in 2019, with Whale Rider and North Country's Niki Caro directing.

We can't wait to see what Liu does in the role! We're sure she'll be a badass Mulan!
