China has announced a new movie featuring female warrior Mulan.

The new movie, called "Fight Mulan" (战斗吧木兰), started filming on Aug. 31 and is set to be released on Oct. 5 next year.

It stars Chinese actress Yang Ning as Mulan.

China has previously released an action movie on Mulan in 2009, starring popular Chinese actress Zhao Wei.
