The upcoming Disney live-action Mulan film is expected to be one of Disney’s biggest films of 2020. And now it looks like the Disney Parks are gearing up for the release of the highly anticipated live-action film with new merchandise inspired by Mulan!
Disney Parks has just revealed the latest pair of Minnie Mouse Ear headbands and they are a must have for all Mulan fans. We are already in love with these ears, and we think you will be too. Let’s dive in and take a closer look at the Mulan inspired Minnie Ears, which recently made their debut in the theme park.
Mulan Themed Minnie Mouse Ears
The new Mulan Minnie Mouse Ears have a red silky flower print on both the headband and the ears themselves. The sparkle sequin gold embellishment on the front helps to make the ears pop.
In the middle, a bright blue bow sits along with a green bow placed directly behind. In the middle of the blue bow is a silver dragon charm.
When you flip the Minnie Mouse ears over, you will see the green bow much more clearly. Right behind the green bow is a Chinese fan, one much similar to Mulan’s in the film. From the looks of it, Disney guests can easily wear these Minnie Mouse ears either way — With the blue bow and dragon in the front or with the green bow and Mulan’s fan in the front.
Some people are taking issue with the new ears as in Chinese culture, men who wear green on their heads is a sign of humiliation. If a man is seen wearing green on his head, it means he has cheated on his partner.
We spotted these new Minnie Mouse ears inside the theme park at Disneyland Resort, but keep those eyes peeled because we expect these to pop up in Walt Disney World Resort as well.
The Official Mulan Description:
If you haven’t yet read about the upcoming live-action Disney film, take a look at the official description below:
“Acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro brings the epic tale of China’s legendary warrior to life in Disney’s Mulan, in which a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.”
The upcoming Mulan live-action film will not be a remake of the beloved Disney animated film. In fact, the upcoming film will be much more realistic and based on authentic Chinese culture. It will not be based around comedy or music like the animated film was. Director Niki Caro stated in an interview:
“We don’t tend to break into song when we go to war. Not saying anything against the animation because the songs are brilliant and if I could squeeze them in there, I would have. But we do honor the music from the animation in a very significant way, that’s all I’ll say.”
