Christina Aguilera has revealed she has recorded new music for Disney’s live-action Mulan movie.

Back in 1998, the film studio released the animated classic which featured Aguilera’s ballad ‘Reflection’.

Listen to the original song below:

And this year, Disney are set to release a live-action remake of the classic film – which had voicing talents of Eddie Murphy, Lea Solange and B D Wong – but the studio revealed the reboot won’t be a musical.

However, bits of the hit song ‘Reflection’ have been used in trailers for the film and now Aguilera has revealed she has recorded a new take on the song as well as some new material for the live-action reboot.

During a performance of her Las Vegas residency Xperience, Aguilera told the crowd: “The live action Mulan is coming out by the way.

"You have to go see it. I recorded a new ‘Reflection’ and new material for the movie.

“I've been working on that, but this is the original."

Aguilera then belted out the ballad to adoring fans.

Mulan is set to be released on March 27. Watch the trailer below:
