Director Jingle Ma and cast members Zhao Wei and Chen Kun attended a press conference on Saturday during the Cannes film festival, promoting the upcoming live action film "Mulan".
Zhao Wei, who played the title role of Hua Mulan, said "Mulan" was her most toilful film ever.
"I got up at 6:30 every morning, and had either fighting scenes or crying scenes for all day. It was a big challange," the actress said.
However, Zhao Wei thought she's lucky to get such a role. She said she admires the courage of Mulan.
"The role requires a great confidence. I feel myself getting more optimistic and confident."
Actor Chen Kun portrays a general who fell in love with Mulan and assisted her with her fighting career.
"I found that behind a great woman there is also a great man," he said.
A trailer was projected at the press conference, in which Zhao Wei shows "explosive acting," according to a report of sina.com.
Yu Dong, president of the publisher Poly-Bona Film, told the web portal that they have made deals with buyers from German, Turkey and Middle East, while publishing in France and English-speaking countries are still undergoing negotiation.
