2. Constance Wu

One aspect of Mulan, the character, that mustn't be lost in the shuffle toward action and adventure, is her humor. Her misfit nature and the Shakespearian disguise comedy demand an actress capable of landing jokes and giving the character a big, definable personality.

Wu is currently enjoying success as the breakout character Jessica on "Fresh Off the Boat," and has shown a great amount of energy and precision with comedy with spots on "Children's Hospital" and "Spooked." Admittedly, she hasn't had much action experience, but it seems like the smarter move for a production to craft an action star out of a good actor than vice versa. Wu could be 2017's Chris Pratt!
