I first saw the Disney Mulan and thought that it would be something like that. But I met something completely different in a very positive way. There was also no gi jane trying to show the world something, mulan was just a person who grew with the duty and just did what she had to do.
The film left out all the gender conflicts beside and truly presented us a pure touching story.
Hua Mulan being a great general and warrior is after 12 years again a woman of her time at the end. The end of the love story is also sad but otherwise it wouldn't be such a good film.
Hollywood would surely add a kiss at the end, it was much better that there were just the right words...
