Wuhan-born ‘Mulan’ star Liu Yifei talks coronavirus

As fears over the coronavirus outbreak consume her native China and force the closure of the country’s 70,000 movie theaters, Mulan actress Liu Yifei doesn’t just have a lot of stake on a professional level; there’s a personal connection too. Liu, who will play the title role in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of its 1998 animated film, hails from Wuhan, the Hubei province capital where the first coronavirus cases were reported.
