Disney's heading back to the land of Mulan for its latest live-action remake, and director Niki Caro just shared a glimpse behind the scenes.

The live-action Mulan now has its star in Liu Yifei, and now the director has shared a behind the scenes image and a caption that will give some fans fond memories. The image features Mulan standing by a lake with her reflection in the water. It's against a green screen of course, but the gorgeous purple flowers on the tree behind her and the whole reflection theme definitely make us remember a similar scene from the film, as well as one of the soundtrack's biggest songs.

Not a bad way to kick off production, and you can check out the photo below. "Day #1. Reflections.
