Kim Chiu Is Now A Disney PrincessKim Chiu is not only a chinita princess (her Instagram and Twitter handle) now, she's also the newest Disney princess as she will portray the role of Mulan in one of the company's Southeast Asia projects.
Walt Disney first released the animated film "Mulan" in 1998. It tells the story of a Chinese legend called Hua Mulan, who joined an army while she was disguised as a man to stop his father from joining the war.
Before this, Kim already portrayed a dual role for "My Binondo Girl." Star Magic Philippines, the talent arm of ABS-CBN, released the statement by Disney Southeast Asia. Also accompanying the statement are photos of Kim in her upcoming project.
"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."
Kim worked with a Thailand-based film and video production house, Pak Yak Vim, for the said photoshoot, which will be used by Disney Southeast Asia's 2015 calendar.
