Mulan

by Uiviee | created - 06 Sep 2017 | updated - 28 Jul 2018 | Public

-Don't cast white people and HALF WHITE for these characters. You already done it with Jasmine. Casting half white asians for asian roles is such a cop out. Please don't do the same for Mulan.

-Don't get rid of Shang. Keep him! Cast hot asians. Asians don't all look the same. There are hot asians and ugly asians, by the way.

-Don't halfass the cinematographer!!! Make it beautiful in every scene and in every moment. It has to be gorgeous and full of life! The movie should show natural beauty, delicate and majestic beauty. It should look like it's a place of it's own, not look like a studio and cgi. It should not be distracting and take the backseat when the characters need to be the center focus.

-Don't halfass the fighting choreography. Don't use nauseating shaky cameras. Avoid awkward fighting choreo, Avoid overdoing slowmo! and Avoid obvious use of stunt double. Actors should do some training. This is pretty easy because even though Mulan has fantasy elements, The fights and just the movie as a whole is actually very grounded in reality.

-Don't make it corny, Learn from Wonder Woman. That movie had too much slow mos, cgi that didn't flow together with the real person, You can easily tell which part the cgi comes in..and it had way too much ~ L'oréal hair commercial moments~..I mean you can have beautiful shots in a middle of a battle/fight but know where it's too much and it's too unrealistic to be so overthetop corny and overly photogenic. It's not a music video. It should be beautiful of course! but it needs to be realistic. (Not too realistic, don't make it ugly!)

-Don't cast Asian Americans. This film is about Chinese culture and Chinese people from China. These type of movies are more than entertainment, they're political and culturally important. Those people are not needed in this especially when majority of Asian American actors are self hating, white validating white worshiping, whitewashed, opportunists so for you to cast them just goes against what this film is about. There are minority but majority are unfortunately like that, they're ppl who goes by masquerading like they care about social issues but their actions says otherwise. They're full of lip service. It's just regressive to have a movie showcasing beauty and the story of a Chinese classic, Chinese people and culture but have self hating, white validating, hypocrites to represent it. It's harmful representation, it's just as bad if not worse than Whitewashing. Please Cast genuine talented people. Mainland asians will give you the money y'all need. They're a safe better choice.

-Don't play it safe but Don't be too ambitious either. There's a healthy middle.

-The movie has to make sense, and it has to be engaging! make the story fluid and exciting. It shouldn't be convoluted but It shouldn't be boring and bland either. You already have a guide to follow and learn from, the animated movie is great.

-Mulan has to be have some charisma or likability to her that makes the viewers emotionally attached and invested in her character and journey. We gotta care about Mulan and care about what's happening.

-Li Shang was strict, meticulous and serious, Not a asshole. Don't portray him as a prick, there's a distinction. He is the captain of the army, it make sense why he is so tense. He has to be, he holds a lot of responsibility. I hope he'll be portrayed well in the movie. We can side with Mulan, but not hate Li Shang.

-Don't forget Mulan was a clever girl who used her wits to win and survive. She didn't rely on Mushu. She worked hard and used her brain to win against Shan yu. She was naturally sharp and that's one of the most impressive and refreshing thing about her.

-The part where they find out she's a girl is so crucial and need to be done well. We should all feel the sincerity and all the emotions happening in that scene. We should feel Li Shang confusion & anger, We should feel the tension when Li Shang was about to cut her head, We should feel the sadness when she was left behind regretting and crying over her decision. By that part we should all be invested in these people, it should be like seeing our close friends fighting and breaking up.

-The outfits, costumes and the set should be well researched and historically & culturally ACCURATE.

-Make her boy disguise realistic. How can a girl with such soft feminine features disguised as a boy, easily join the military and fool a lot of people? That does not make any sense. It is just not realistic. Either use Mushu magic narrative and cgi to make her look more masculine, or she hardly pass by and the characters also doubt and suspect her gender, they often comment on her girly appearance. You could have another pretty boy in the cast and he is also subjected to the same thing as Mulan. So it's make more sense that there are pretty boys out there like her, that's why she easily got in and fooled people.

-The other characters need to be very endearing and full of fun diverse personalities. They should do their job but not over shine Mulan. I suggest avoiding portraying them as one dimensional comic relief characters, even though they are comic relief..i suggest not to make it so obvious. They should not exist or feel like they're there just to say corny jokes with bad awkward delivery. They should FEEL like boys with their own life and own existence, they should be people with their own personality, own worries and they should also be Mulan companion, rivals, friends and not just a comic relief characters.

-The villain shouldn't be so cliche and flat. Give me a little more dept, less corny cliche villain lines & ambition. The villain should be captivating, menacing, should have a presence, The villain HAS TO BE charismatic. Don't make it so black and white, don't make it so simple and flat. Give a bit of dept, have some gray areas, don't make him so hateable, make it less cliche, and make the villain cool & likable to a extent.

-Also like to MAKE IT CLEAR: Mulan should be a family honor (+Chinese culture) over a Feminism film. Don't get it twisted. Prioritize the family honor theme over feminism theme. This is a woman who disguised as a dude and joined the military for her Father, for her Family. That is the reason, that is the starter point, the motivation. It's what driven her to be strong and independent so It should be family honor first before feminism. It is a feminism movie but it's more natural and appealing because of the mc motivation (cause of her father), mc using logic & wits to win, it kept showing us her hardwork and struggle throughout the story. My point is to prioritize that theme over feminism so it doesn't come off overbearingly, corny and obnoxiously a feminism propaganda type of movie.

-Mulan should come off as a typical charming normal girl that decided on a Bold decision, endured and won a battle through simply being smart & hardworking. She shouldn't give off a vibe she's trying to act "tougher" and tomboy to be more of feminist, that should only happen as a joke or the comic relief part of the film. The feminism in mulan shouldn't be so SHALLOW and CONTRIVED. It should be natural, real and appealing.

-Mushu has to be in this movie, and don't cast Kevin Hart.
