Disney releases new Christina Aguilera 'Reflection' music video from live-action 'Mulan'

LOS ANGELES -- With just days until the release of the live-action adaptation of "Mulan," Disney on Friday dropped the music video for Christina Aguilera's updated rendition of "Reflection."

The music video features Aguilera seated in a flowing blue gown as she performs the song to -- what else -- her reflection in the water in front of her. It was directed by Niki Caro, who also directed the upcoming live-action adaptation of "Mulan."

Check out a preview of the music video in the player above or watch the full song below:

"The film 'Mulan' and the song 'Reflection' coincided with getting me my first record deal. It's amazing to come back to such an incredible movie that's full of power and meaning, and that meaning holds the test of time: staying true to yourself, being who you are, and teaching how to be fearless," Aguilera explained earlier this year.

The updated rendition of "Reflection" is one of two songs Aguilera recorded for the film. The music video of the other song, "Loyal Brave True," was released last week. Aguilera previously said that song "represents the fine balance between vulnerability and strength."

She will perform both songs on "Good Morning America" on Monday, August 31.

"Reflection" was originally written by David Zippel and Matthew Wilder, and the new cut was produced by Harry Gregson-Williams. "Loyal Brave True" was written by Gregson-Williams, Jamie Hartman, Rosi Golan and Billy Crabtree and produced by Jamie Hartman.

She disguises herself as a man to take the place of her ailing father, setting out on a journey that will change her life forever. It comes more than two decades after Disney's 1998 animated feature of the same title, also based on the poem.
