Mulan is one of my favorite Disney animated movies I would like to see these changes and I appreciate the work Disney did in the Animation world.
If mulan was your favorite you wouldn’t let them do this.
yeah, as if she’s capable of stopping disney from doing this….
What?! No little dragon?! BOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! That’s going too far!
Omg I LOVED Mushu! Not a musical? Are they CRAZY???!!! You can get action flicks anywhere, Disney has ALWAYS been all about the music! My 2 yr old granddaughter sings Frozen & Moana ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!! First thing when we get in the car she says, “I want Shiny Crab or You’re Welcome.” This will NOT appeal to kids, oh well!
Can’t get worse or it can. We don’t need a live action version.
Kinda bummed about the phoenix thing. Chinese dragons are so cool! I assume they changed mushu for story reasons, a phoenix would probably somehow function better in the new story, whatever that may be. Otherwise its just too random of a change. Phoenixes are cool too, so I’m pretty curious to see what the result will be.
All The Best For Your Future Works.
No. Hell no. I really liked the idea of Kevin Hart playing Mushu. This new remake doesn’t make sense. Call it something else if it won’t even be remotely close to being the same. I feel like this is an excuse to use the character names and lure Mulan fans in but nope we will be disappointed. I assure you.
How will Mulan get down to business to defeat the Huns!?
If you have no Mushu, you have no movie! Horrible move Disney. These changes killed the Mulan story.
You can’t have Mulan without Mushu! Or Shane. And now that there is no singing? Horrible. Disney is all about singing. I was going to go see this when it came out but now that you cut out Mushu , Shane and singing l am probably not going to see it. I am so disappointing since this is my favorite Disney movie.
This is a pretty misinformed article, and I recommend looking into the actual folktale the Disney movie was based on first. The Disney movie is not “original” in any way – it is based loosely on a Chinese folktale that featured exactly 0 talking dragons.
It seems Niki Caro and Disney want to make a live action movie that isn’t a shot for shot remake of the original: a hopeful thing for artistic integrity in Hollywood, though it will certainly upset people who know nothing about the ballad save what the animated film told them.
Because the movie is to be based on both the animated film and the Chinese epic, it makes sense to not have the same comedic humor as the animated film. You can always go back and watch the old version anyway — I for one am happy to see the changes.
We need the songs! And our little dragon!
WAS looking forward to the movie Milan, now, not so much. Eddie Murphy should have play Mushu and the songs should stay. Listen to your heart. My family go together and the children love the music and sing along. Disney is Not just for the adults, what about the children. We are so tired also of EVERYTHING that has to be made FOR women. They have pushed the limit on gender equality too far. Just about all the movies are about women beating men. They run faster, jumper high, fight better, while not breaking a heel, so to speak. Go back to the basics, being fun, not so politically correct. It suppose to be imaginative, that’s were you go to relax and enjoy. Real life is there when you exit the theater, and that’s all day.
Since a lot of this film seems to be made in China, it is possible that Chinese authorities did not want Disney to portray a Chinese Dragon in an undignified manner since it s a symbol of China and still revered there. I recall that China even banned an American TV commercial in their country because of the way they presented a dragon. I agree with others here though that with no Mushu and no singing many people will not bother to see it and it will seem little different from all of those Ancient Chinese history flicks on Netflix.
