‘Every family must contribute one man to fight!’, the Emperor of China shouts to its people. Hua Mulan stands up for her ailing father to serve in the Imperial Chinese Army to defend the country from Huns.
The young girl masquerades as a male warrior and enters an epic journey where being loyal, brave and true helps her to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. However, being 'true' means telling the truth which will expose Mulan's gender.
Just like other Disney remakes, the storyline has been slightly adjusted and includes brand new story elements and characters. In the movie Mulan will not battle against the leader of the Hun Army or fall in love with her captain. Instead she will be confronted with Xian Lang, a powerful witch and Mulan will still find love, this time in a fellow soldier. The story is based on Chinese folk song ‘The Ballad Of Mulan’ and the Live-Action is closer to the original story.
The movie shows a war epic like we’ve never seen before in Disney movies and hits theaters on the 27th of March, 2020.
