Almost 20 years later - yes, 20 years (cries into pillow) - a live-action version of Mulan is in the works with director Niki Caro at the helm. The original animation is extremely empowering to women, so it's awesome that a female will be behind the lens, controlling our favorite childhood warrior princess's portrayal this time around. As we await our modernized heroine, and her potentially CGI-animated companions Mushu and Cri-Kee, we can look back fondly on the Disney original - because let's be real, we all still revert back to our 7-year-old Capri Sun-loving selves when "I'll Make a Man Out Of You" comes on Pandora. Now that we know when the reimagined film will premiere, let's take a look at nine facts you probably never knew about Disney's first Asian princess and Og girl-power-charged badass.

A few days after dancing her heart out to Whitney Houston, the "Body Party" singer stepped out with husband Russell Wilson for the Warner Music Group's Grammys afterparty in Hollywood.

Ten days after declaring war is a lousy time for a party, let alone a Super Bowl.
On Jan. 17, 1991, an armed coalition led by the United States commenced Operation Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf, marking the first major military action of the post-terrorism age. Less than two weeks later, the New York Giants and the Buffalo Bills prepared for their own conflict as Super Bowl Xxv kicked off in Tampa, Florida. Fears that Saddam Hussein would target this, the most American of sporting events, led some NFL officials to consider rescheduling. The big game would proceed as planned, but the festive mood of Jan. »

After a bleak and often brutal stretch of episodes last fall, The Walking Dead wrapped the first half of its seventh season back in December with a rousing reunion between Rick, Michonne, Daryl, and Maggie at the Hilltop Colony. Our heroes gave every indication that they were ready to stop cautiously cowering from Negan and to start taking the fight directly to the Saviors. Given that this show's head writers Scott M.
