Fans got a preview of the upcoming film during the World Cup final game. The trailer starts out with Mulan’s family delivering the news that a matchmaker has found her an auspicious match. By the end, she’s wielding swords and shooting arrows like the fierce warrior we know her to be.

The remake is based on the 1998 animated movie about a Chinese woman who disguises herself as a warrior to spare her father from joining the military. The original film grossed more than $300 million worldwide.
