This retelling of the old Chinese folktale is about the story of a young Chinese maiden who learns that her weakened and lame father is to be called up into the army in order to fight the invading Huns. Knowing that he would never survive the rigours of war in his state, she decides to disguise herself and join in his place. Unknown to her, her ancestors are aware of this and to prevent it, they order a tiny disgraced dragon, Mushu to join her in order to force her to abandon her plan. He agrees, but when he meets Mulan, he learns that she cannot be dissuaded and so decides to help her in the perilous times ahead. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <>

Did You Know?


When Mulan sleeps in before her first morning of training, Mushu wakes her up, proclaiming, "Rise and shine, Sleeping Beauty!" This is a nod to the legendary Disney classic, Sleeping Beauty (1959). See more »


The Huns could not have been the enemy of Mulan and her allies. The Huns were pretty much done by 469 CE and spent their time attacking the western and eastern empires of Rome, not the Chinese. The invasion of China that Mulan is alleged to have helped fight occurred in 600 CE. The Gokturks were the likely opponent that Mulan would have faced. See more »


Mulan: [Mulan and Mushu escape back to shore from Yao, Ling, and Chin-Po] Boy, that was close.
Mushu: No...
Mushu: [brushes his teeth] That was vile! You owe me big.
[Mushu squirts more toothpaste in his mouth and brushes again]
Mulan: I never want to see a naked man again.
[a big group of naked men run past them, laughing]
Mushu: Hey, don't look at me, I ain't biting no more butts.

The growth of the typical Disney heroine
3 December 1998 | by (East Lansing, MI) – See all my reviews

There are two things I love about this movie, aside from its stunning and beautiful animation. One is that I love the fact that Disney is exploring legends from other cultures and I am so glad it brought us this one. The other is that I just wanted to stand up and cheer at this great heroine. I am a huge fan of Disney movies, but most of the heroines, while spunky, are still just your basic damsel in distress. I loved Mulan's character. She was strong, she was powerful, she could do anything she wanted, and she overcame much diversity. I was thrilled to see the portrayal of a strong female character surviving because of her own integrity and strength rather than because of her looks. Bravo, Disney, for bringing us this wonderfully progressive Chinese tale.
