The candid self-written interview that accompanies the cover shoot is also a rarity for the mega-pop star who doesn’t give the media many insights into her personal life, aside from her music.

 In the illuminating written piece the award-winning artist talks about her Coachella performances earlier this year, her ancestry and motherhood in her own word.

Disney has officially started production on its live-action rendition of their 1998 cartoon classic, Mulan. 

On Monday, the company tweeted a photo of actress Liu Yifei in full Mulan gear to make the official announcement. And, yes, China’s hero looks as fierce as you’d expect.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Liu was chosen to play the iconic role out of “nearly 1,000 candidates for the role across five continents.” She stars alongside Jet Li as the Emperor, Jason Scott Lee as villain Bori Khan, Yoson An as Mulan’s love interest Chen Honghui, Donnie Yen as mentor figure Commander Tung, and Xana Tang as the heroine’s sister.
Other castmembers include Utkarsh Ambudkar, Ron Yuan, Tzi Ma, Rosalind Chao, Cheng Pei-Pei, Nelson Lee, and Gong Li.

From the way things are shaping up, this is definitely going to be different from the Fa Mulan you know and love. There isn’t even a Li Shang or Mushu! But here’s hoping it turns out anywhere near as good as the original—although, it is pretty hard to compete with.
Mulan is set to premiere on March 27, 2020.

Oscars move to honor ‘popular’ movies sparks swift backlash

The Oscars will introduce a new award for popular films and the annual ceremony will be limited to three hours, organizers said on Wednesday, in a bid to stave off slumping audiences for the movie industry’s most prestigious honors.

The decision to create a special category for popular films sparked an immediate backlash, with one critic saying it smacked of desperation.

The sweeping changes also include handing out some of the 24 Academy Awards during commercial breaks in the Feb. 24 broadcast on Walt Disney Co’s (DIS.N) ABC network.

“We are committed to producing an entertaining show in three hours, delivering a more accessible Oscars for our viewers worldwide,” the board of governors at the Academy of Motion Pictures said in a letter to members.

The U.S. television audience for the almost four-hour Oscar ceremony in March 2018 was 26.5 million viewers, the smallest in awards’ 90-year history. The telecast is an important showcase for the film industry, and nominated movies typically attract a new wave of ticket buyers.

“The accidental implication is here’s the award for popular film, and here’s the unpopular films,” said Alison Willmore, critic and culture writer for Buzzfeed News.

The changes are the biggest since the Academy in 2016 pledged to double its female and minority membership by 2020 in response to the #OscarsSoWhite criticism of its nominees.

In 2009, it expanded the number of best picture nominees from five to 10 in a bid to open up the competition.

Yet in recent years, the Oscars have tended to honor art house fare and performers, like best picture winners “Moonlight” and “The Shape of Water,” for its biggest prizes rather than box office hits like the “Star Wars” franchise or superhero movies such as 2017 blockbuster “Wonder Woman.”

Fans of this year’s superhero sensation “Black Panther,” from Disney’s Marvel Studios, have been arguing that it deserves a best picture nomination.

Wednesday’s letter did not give details of the new category recognizing “achievement in popular film,” saying those would come later, but critics on Twitter said it seemed to create a second-tier honor and mocked it as “the Black Panther award.”

“This is desperation,” wrote Kristopher Tapley, awards editor for Hollywood trade publication Variety. “Here comes the Academy, establishing a corner to which voters can banish (Black Panther) and other films like it with a pat on the head and a “‘thanks for playing.’”

The Academy could have waited to see the impact on the best picture race from its push to diversify its membership, Willmore said.

“There’s a lot of reasons to believe that would have shaken up the hidebound ideas of what an Oscar movie is,” she said.

The Academy said it will trim the duration of the Oscars ceremony by handing out some awards during commercial breaks. Organizers did not say which of the 24 awards, which honor everything from acting to sound editing and short films, would be shifted.
