Such a good debate. Personally, I'm conflicted. Didn't the live-action JUNGLE BOOK have some of the same songs from the original?
You should know, however, that while the film is not a musical in the
sense that the original was, there are still some songs included. "The
Bare Necessities" is there, sung this time by Bill Murray as Baloo. Also
included is the King Louie classic "I Wanna Be Like You", performed by
Christopher Walken in the role.
It's been 21 (!) years since the original Mulan was released in 1998, so maybe this is their version of an update?
Personally the live-action update I'd be most excited for would be HERCULES!
