It is a story about a war, after all. Disney's live-action Mulan is rated PG-13 due to "sequences of violence." Mulan, which tells the story a young Chinese woman who takes her father's place in the army by disguising herself as a man, is being released in theaters March 27.
In respect to this, are they making a real life Mulan movie?
The film is based on the Chinese folklore "The Ballad of Mulan" and is a live-action adaptation of Disney's 1998 animated film of the same name. The film stars Liu Yifei in the title role, alongside Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, and Jet Li in supporting roles.
Subsequently, question is, what is the movie all about Mulan?
Fearful that her ailing father will be drafted into the Chinese military, Mulan (Ming-Na Wen) takes his spot -- though, as a girl living under a patriarchal regime, she is technically unqualified to serve. She cleverly impersonates a man and goes off to train with fellow recruits. Accompanied by her dragon, Mushu (Eddie Murphy), she uses her smarts to help ward off a Hun invasion, falling in love with a dashing captain along the way.
Is Mulan China or Japan?
The story is set in China, but the flag on the hospital tent where Mulan is recovering is the Japanese flag.
Why is Mushu not in Mulan?
Because of the connection that many Chinese people have with the time-honored tale, Caro wanted to stray from some of the fantastical elements seen in the animated movie, including Mushu. The choice to leave out the witty dragon, who was voiced by Eddie Murphy, was met with criticism from die-hard fans.
