As far as Disney Princess movies go, Mulan was arguably one of the best. Despite how good it was, the original Chinese fairy-tale was arguably much more interesting. How can an ancient story top a Disney classic? Let’s Get down to Business and explore the original Hua Mulan

I disagree with mulan starting off as a badass. The fact that she earned it and eventually became stronger and the nucleus of her group. That's the one thing other than the end that I like from the movie more than the original

You know, there was already a live-action Mulan titled "Hua Mulan" in Chinese (Mulan 2009 or Mulan: Rise of a Warrior) . I think that version sticks closer to original story than Disney's version. If you can accept reading subtitles, i think it's an ok movie.

I saw the 2009 Chinese version of Mulan. You are 100% correct. Like other serious dramatic Chinese movies, it is far superior to anything put out by Hollywood or by Disney. Sticking to the original version of any story/ novel is always better than the Hollywood version.

Always thought the horse in the film [Khan] was oddly proportioned and angular, but seeing the Chinese illustration with the poem at 00:18 and 04:59 it’s nice to realise where the inspiration likely came from for the shape!

I prefer the Disney’s ‘Mulan and Mulan 2’. Even though I was only 10,I was able to continue the story of Mulan in action-packed wars with Li Shang and the fellow soilders

Genghis Khan and his descendants story is also great. But in Mulan story they are enemies here. And even in historical tv series, it's always Hun / Han is the great enemy. Poor Han! Depicted as evil.

I wonder who is that responsible of distorting the original story of Mulan? The original is better...But the end, I prefer the Disney version. I like Capt. Shang compare to Ping police and/or some random neighbors to be husband.

3:15 you say you preffer her being a baddass from the beggining, but if that happened in the animation you'd say It's Mary Sue.

I don't think it's #feminism. It should be #filial piety. It was not because she was a female and wanted to show she can do better than man. It was out of love for her father. Which in Chinese we called it 孝顺 which is one of highest value and merits in Chinese/sino culture.

Cartoon is cartoon. And most make for kids. If try make for older population then will be messy. Expesely when start battle. But if try to make movie i hope he will use 90 or 98% original story.

The fact that she from a family that faught in previous wars means that girl or not she would have trained to fight from a young age. For her own protection. Not for war. So Disney wasn't very realistic at all (ignoring the talking cricket). They should have should have shown her with adequate skill

It would have been awesome if the animated movie was more like the original and with her already knowing how to fight but still keep "I'll Make A Man Out Of You" just because it's a cool song

The mulan's story could be real. Maria Quitéria de Jesus was born on June 27, 1792, in Licurizeiro, in the parish of São José das Itaporocas (now located in Feira de Santana), Bahia. She was the eldest daughter of a farmer, Gonçalo Alves de Almeida, and his wife, Quitéria Maria de Jesus. Although Maria received no formal education, she would have practiced the skills necessary to farming, such as riding, hunting, and using firearms-these skills would serve her in the military as well. Against her father's will, an unmarried Maria Quitéria enlisted in the Brazilian army, as a man, in October 1822. Until June 1823, she fought in several battles against the Portuguese in Bahia, where she lived. Maria Quitéria's father outed her as a woman once he discovered her betrayal-but because of her skill in battle, she was allowed to continue to fight. She was promoted to cadet in July 1823, and then to lieutenant in August, where she was received and decorated by the Emperor. After her time serving in the war, Quitéria married Gabriel Pereira Brito (who was a former lover of hers) and had one daughter with him, named Luisa.
Is the random witch in the live action REALLY in the original play???? I think she kinda undermines the whole point of her taking down the male villain by herself. Also i would have been okay with a LEOPARD MAN as a villain. 😂👌🏼✨

In the “true” (aka #Tangdynasty) version the superbadass gets married off to some guy and just accepts it, that is considered empowering to women? #Mulan

There is actually a live action movie of Mulan released in 2009. I prefer the 2009 version since it’s in Chinese, has a stronger appeal and story and overall the movie is closer to the original tale rather than the Disney version. You guys should see it if you haven’t.

I kinda want the movie to end with her suicide, but knowing Disney they won’t. The message shows that heroes are people too and are the same as any one of us.

I have heard slightly different details in a story on NPR, in which Mulan actually gets a commission and land after a relatively long military career... And might possibly have been in the attacking army. When were "Mulan" martial arts developed (e.g., Mulan fan)?

This is an interesting and inspiring legend and how we choose to understand it depends on our societal values. The ancient Chinese version emphasised filial piety, and nationalism... While the American contemporary version wants to spotlight on self-empowerment and gender issues... Only Hua Mulan will ever know 'who she really is' 😅

The origin story of mulan is actually a Mary Sue. The disney clumsy mulan is far better! She is not perfect but still badass and shows more character! I feel her pain on some scenes. She is realatable and the most human disney girl!

I mean Mulan took place during a period when Cantonese was the main language in China, I think. (Don't quote me.) Mandarin came later on. So her surname Fa isn't all too inaccurate to her time period.

I remember reading about the “original” story of Mulan. The reason why she was already an experienced martial artist was because her father actually taught her to fight. She also had one or two younger sisters and a brother who, like what was said in the video, was too young to join the war. She also became a general in the army and was highly revered, there were no gender or crossdressing drama, like what was said again in the video. Everyone was amazed about how she was actually a woman despite her big reveal. Mulan, also, was never a “tomboy”, you know, clumsy and awkward, she acts like an ideal Chinese bride- graceful, refined, and obedient. And finally, I remember reading that the emperor wanted to make her one of his concubine. Since she didn’t want that and since she had no choice, she just killed herself.

Yeah that's a version of story from the Sui Tang Romance, a story written some 400 years after the play by Xu Wei and around a thousand years after the original recorded poem. That version has become popular online in the West as it follows a more old school "Grimm Fairy Tale" like structure where something terrible happens at the end but is nowhere near a true interpretation of the original work.
