Next on the list is the famous story of Mulan, transforming from a beloved animated character into a live-action warrior ready to prove a woman can fight just as well as a man.
The original Mulan released in 1998 and audiences with its tale of a young Chinese woman who takes her father’s place in the army. To fight off a horde of intruders, the crown prince decrees that one man per family must join the military. To protect her father from conscription, Mulan disguises herself as a man. She learns to fight and ends up helping to save the entire country with her skills.
The live-action Mulan movie follows that same story, with a few tweaks to the characters. For one, there’s no equivalent to the dragon Mushu. For another, the new Mulan is not a musical, so characters don’t burst into song.
