When Mulan saves the entire fighting forces, what she managed to hide up to that point is discovered: She is a girl masquerading as a man. By that, I mean that he is not magical, he holds no special power. Unfortunately, the great Stone Dragon is destroyed by the little tiny dragon Mushu Eddie Murphy. He is portrayed as a man, and as a man that could have truly existed, performing vicious acts that men do. She isn't like Ariel, who wants to be someone else. When Mulan discovers that none of them want these marriages will make a decision that will change the course of history.
The mischievous Mushu try to separate the happy couple because it wants to keep its job as a guardian dragon. She is quick to act, like Eric mermaid. Only to save his life. And she sacrifices herself for the sake of others, like Hercules. And while there is some difference between the original legend and this movie, your examples of how Disney would butcher tales of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln do not compare to this story in any way.
The voice of Mushu is from Eddie Murphy and he does a very great job. Mulan, although a woman, manages to save the day. Following the Disney tradition, there is a strong female character, this time taking lead. She doesn't want for herself, and she seeks to look deeper within herself to discover her inner being. She pretends to be a man and does the training to go to war against the Huns who invaded China.
But it took me a while as adult to see how the subconscious message of helplessness in these fairy tales can reinforce the existing values of society and parents that girls are meant to be saved. I think we can all guess what happens. When the Huns start attacking the country, the Emperor orders one member of every family to join the Chinese Army and defend the country. Many surprises are coming and should be part of them. It attracts a fighter clad in place of her father in the war and fighting for 12 years in glory for the Empire without imposing a wage for it. While in the disguise of a loyal soldier to the emperor, Mulan falls in love with her commander, who does not suspect the deception.
While meanwhile the love for another fighter unexpectedly sneak to Mulan, the battle with the Huns is fast approaching. From the decorations on the walls, to the matchmakers, to the great honor in family, Disney manages to show what the country of China was like, and in many ways, still is today. We see the destruction that his army lays to a village, and when Mulan finds the doll, it shows that Shan Yu left no one living, man, woman or child. So with Mushu and a small cricket by her side, Mulan heads off to help destroy the Huns. Hercules was very dark, animation-wise.
When Mulan told them she had an idea to help the emperor faster, they were the first to her side, even when Shang was still reluctant to do so. This was a way of telling a story, as any movie is. This is what makes him so effective as a villain, showing how truly human he indeed is. Do you want to know what happens in this story? And while she does share some traits among this list, she stands out because she does something that these do not. A synopsis must include exclusively details of the story of the film, with no commentary. I don't want to destroy her pleasure in these fairy tales, after all, I loved them too.
Disney animation has done it again. I've not seen Pocahontas so I can't comment on that. My challenge is the explain things in a way which is both accurate and yet understandable to a 4 year old. With a quick and good story and a lot of funny moments this is a great movie. Prior to the two can have their cheerfully ever after, the Emperor doles out them a mystery mission, to escort three princesses to Qui Gong, China. Eddie Murphy was just down right hilarious in this movie.
Mulan took a simple plot, put it in ancient China, and made it very colorful and fun to watch. Please note that we and our contributors are still adamant and passionate about ensuring that our data remains as structured as possible and properly categorized, so if you add data here that is irrelevant, it is highly likely that other users will remove or revert it. I find myself treading a fine line between letting her enjoy the fairy tale and occasionally commenting on the fact that perhaps some of these princesses just don't do enough to help themselves and how they can help themselves a little bit more. Overall, I'd say Mulan is definitely one to watch. Da ist zum einen der freche Mushu, der seinen Job als Wächter der Familie ziemlich ernst nimmt und so für erhebliche Turbulenzen sorgt. Your arguments for comparison should be better applied to Pocahontas, as she was an actual historical figure. They are assaulted by Mongolians, and the destiny of China hangs in the balance.
