I absolutely love the live action Mulan so much that it is hard to put into words. In March of this year (one week before the world was turned upside down) I attended the LA premiere for Mulan. I was able to watch it with the cast and be introduced to this movie at the Dolby Theater. You can see all about this experience here: Mulan World Premiere.
Acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro brings the epic tale of China’s legendary warrior to life in Disney’s “Mulan,” in which a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.
“Mulan” features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Tzi Ma as Zhou, Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Honghui; Ron Yuan as Sergeant Qiang; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Lauren Hynek & Elizabeth Martin, suggested by the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.” The producers are Chris Bender, Jake Weiner and Jason Reed, with Bill Kong, Barrie M. Osborne, Tim Coddington and Mario Iscovich serving as executive producers.
THOUGHTS ON MULAN:
You can see my full review of Mulan here: Mulan family review. In a few words, this movie has all the feels. It is breathtakingly beautiful with a fabulous backdrop, gorgeous and talented cast, and a mesmorizing story that will lead you thinking about the movie for quite some time. The powerful messages are seen in such a wonderful way that I feel it is an important movie for the entire family to watch.
