Based on an ancient Chinese poem, the legend of MULAN beautifully unfolds in Disney's 36th animated classic! Full of daring adventure, hilarious characters and inspiring music, MULAN celebrates honor, courage and a young girl's quest to be true to her own heart. Beautiful and clever Mulan finds an opportunity to prove her worth outside of her tradition-bound society when, disguised as "Ping," she bravely takes her father's place in the Imperial Army and sets off with the other recruits for military training. With a little help from her outrageously funny guardian dragon Mushu and a lucky cricket named Cri-Kee, Mulan strives to earn the respect of her fellow warriors and their handsome Captain Shang. Her adventures lead to a climactic battle atop the Imperial Palace , where her family's honor and the fate of the Emperor and all of China rest in her hands! MULAN is a one-of-a-kind film about a one-of-a-kind heroine. As the Emperor says, "You don't find a girl like that in every dynasty!" Your whole family will enjoy experiencing Mulan's legendary journey!
Solid entertainment from a new group of Disney animators. The story source is a Chinese fable about a young girl who disguises herself as a man to help her family and her country. When the Huns attack China, a call to arms goes out to every village, and Mulan's father, being the only man in the family, accepts the call. Mulan (voiced by Ming-Na Wen, sung by Lea Salonga) has just made a disastrous appearance at the Matchmaker and decides to challenge society's expectations (being a bride). She steals her father's conscription notice, cuts her hair, and impersonates a man to join the army. She goes to boot camp, learning to fit in with the other soldiers with some help from her sidekick, Mushu, a wise-cracking dragon (voiced by Eddie Murphy). She trains, and soon faces the Huns eye-to-eye to protect her Emperor.
The film is gorgeous to look at, with a superior blend of classic and computer-generated animation. Directors Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook make the best of it: a battle in the snowy mountains is as thrilling as the best Hollywood action films. The menacing Huns are not cute but simple and bad. The wickedness is subtle, not disturbing. The film is not a full-fledged musical, as it has only five songs (the best, "Be a Man," is sung during boot camp). Eddie Murphy is an inspired choice for the comic-relief dragon, but his lines are not as clever as Robin Williams's in Aladdin. These are minor quibbles, though. The story is strong, and Mulan goes right to the top of Disney animated heroines; she has the right stuff." --Doug Thomas
The magnificent legend of Mulan continues in an all-new, full-length movie. The beautiful and courageous heroine is back - along with her hilarious guardian dragon Mushu and some great new friends for more fun in the spectacular sequel to Disney's original classic. The spirited Mulan gets the thrill of her life when General Shang asks for her hand in marriage, but the surprises are just beginning. Throwing a wrench into their plans is the mischievous Mushu, who tries to keep the happy couple apart as long as possible in order to retain his job as her guardian dragon. Adding to their adventure is the fact that Mulan and Shang must escort three princesses across China to their own arranged marriages. When she discovers that these three women aren't looking forward to their upcoming weddings, Mulan makes a bold decision that will change the course of history. Experience the laughs and excitement of Mulan 2 - a new classic in the rich tradition of Disney animation!
