captureA Twitter campaign to force Disney to #MakeMulanRight has been trending on Twitter.

News broke that a Caucasian love interest was included in an earlier script for the live action version of the Disney animated movie. The beloved heroine of the 5th century ballad, The Ballad of Mulan, received her Disney-fied movie in 1998. A live-action retelling is in the works.

There’s also worry that the film will have whitewashed casting, with a Caucasian displacing a Chinese actress in the lead role.

Notably absent in the #MakeMulanRight conversation is the live action film for Aladdin. Over the weekend, news broke that Guy Ritchie is in negotiations to direct the film.

#CallAladdinOnTheCarpet anyone?
