Kim Chiu picked by Disney for Mulan
ABS-CBN talent Kim Chiu has been reportedly chosen by Disney for a project in one of its its popular Princess characters, and the company made a confirmation.
The Walt Disney Company said: "We confirm that Kim Chiu is part of an upcoming Disney project in Southeast Asia. We will share more details on this in the coming months."
Speciulations of Chiu’s part in the project, a 2015 calendar featuring Disney characters, made rounds online late last month when pictures of the actress as Mulan from the 1998 animated film appeared.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Chiu confirmed that she is being prepped up as the Disney Princess donned both in her popular pink hanfu, and her Chinese army gear which she used as disguise.
"Achievement ko siya sa buhay, childhood dream ko maging isa sa mga Disney Princess!" Chiu said. "Nung in-offer sa akin, nakakatuwa na nakakaiyak. ‘Totoo ba na gagawin niyo akong Mulan?’"
Chiu added: "Sobra akong saya and overwhelmed ‘yung puso ko dahil isa ako sa pinili nilang gumanap ng Mulan and excited ako maipakita ko ‘to sa lahat for next year."
Meanwhile, details concerning as to where and the shoot will happen were not disclosed.
