When her old, lame father Fa Zhou (voice of Soon-Tek Oh) is called upon by the emperor to fight with the Imperial army against the invading Huns, his teenage daughter Fa Mulan (voice of Ming-Na Wen), fearing for her father's life, secretly takes his place...disguised as a boy. Accompanied for protection by the tiny, demoted dragon Mushu (voice of Eddie Murphy) and the cricket Cri-Kee (voice of Frank Welker) for luck, Mulan seeks to become a model soldier without revealing her true gender.

Disney's Mulan is based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, a woman warrior originally described in the 6th century in the Ballad of Mulan in a poem transcribed in the Musical Records of Old and New by Chinese poet and musical specialist Guo Maoqian. She was mentioned again in 'The Female Mulan', a play by Chinese playwright Xu Wei in the 16th century, and once more in the 17th century in Sui-Tang Romance, a historical novel by Chu Renhuo. The story and screenplay for Mulan was written by American screenwriters Robert D. San Souci, Rita Hsaio, Chris Sanders, Philip La Zebnik, Raymond Singer, and Eugenia Bostwick-Singer, among others. It was followed by Mulan II (2004).

The emperor (voice of Pat Morita) commends Mulan for saving China due to her bravery, presents her with his medallion and Shan Yu's (voice of Miguel Ferrer)sword, and offers her a job as his council, but Mulan decides to return home. Fa Zhou is overjoyed at his daughter's return. As Grandmother Fa (voice of June Foray) and Fa Li (voice of Freda Foh Shen) wish that Mulan had brought back a man instead of a sword and medal, Captain Li Shang (voice of BD Wong) arrives under the pretext of returning her helmet. Mulan asks him to stay for dinner, which he accepts. In the final scene, Mushu is restored to guardian status by the Fa family's ancestors.
