Mulan: Movie review

t1

Walt Disney’s Mulan celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, 2013. To celebrate, I’ve written a Mulan movie review. Some more posts will be coming soon!

“Why is my reflection someone I don’t know?”

How bad can it be not knowing your own reflection ? Well, thats exactly what happened with Mulan. Mulan(1998) was adapted from the poem ‘The Ballad of Mulan’ which is presumably a true story.

Being the only child, she felt responsible for honoring her family.But, she was unlike other traditional Chinese girls.

She had a feisty, adventurous personality.One day, the Emperor ordered one man from each family to come and join the army for the war against the Huns. Being the only man in the family, Mulan’s old and weak father was ordered to join the army.

That was when Mulan took the biggest decision of all. She stole her father’s armor,  dressed up as a man and without informing her parents, went to join the army.

She made her Captain and the others believe that she was a man. Under Captain Li Shang’s training, Mulan became a good soldier. Mulan, along with her guardian dragon Mushu, ended up saving China.

There is a lot more into the story. I didn’t tell it all so that you could enjoy the movie. Mulan, is one of the greatest Disney movies and is a must for all.

Mulan is a movie the whole family can enjoy. It teaches that girls are no less than boys. And you, can bring honour to your family, just like Mulan did.

  1. Mulan is an awesome story. It’s a true one as well 😉 Mulan was an actual person and she actually did go and join the military in the place of her father. ♥ Although, Mushu the dragon didn’t actualy exist.
