Kim Chiu as Disney Princess Mulan

Kim Chiu has been selected to take part in a Disney project featuring its popular Princess characters, the company has confirmed.


In a statement, The Walt Disney Company said: "We confirm that Kim Chiu is part of an upcoming Disney project in Southeast Asia. We will share more details on this in the coming months."

Rumors of Chiu's part in the project, a 2015 calendar featuring Disney characters, circulated online late last month when photos of the actress as Mulan from the 1998 animated film surfaced.

Speaking with ABS-CBN News, Chiu confirmed that she indeed suited up as the Disney Princess -- both in her popular pink hanfu, and her Chinese army gear which she used as disguise.

"Achievement ko siya sa buhay, childhood dream ko maging isa sa mga Disney Princess!" Chiu said. "Nung in-offer sa akin, nakakatuwa na nakakaiyak. 'Totoo ba na gagawin niyo akong Mulan?'"

Chiu added: "Sobra akong saya and overwhelmed 'yung puso ko dahil isa ako sa pinili nilang gumanap ng Mulan and excited ako maipakita ko 'to sa lahat for next year."
