Here is everything you need to know about the amazing Disney movie Mulan including casting, reviews, fun facts and more. I hope you find this listing informative and helpful!
Full of daring action and hilarious characters, this fun-filled movie celebrates honor, courage, and the importance of family. Clever Mulan proves her worth outside of her tradition-bound society when, disguised as a male soldier, “Ping,” she bravely takes her father’s place in the Imperial Army. Helped by her outrageously funny guardian dragon Mushu and a lucky cricket named Cri-Kee, she strives to earn the respect of her fellow warriors and their courageous 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!
