We’re having a dragon day today!
We’ll watch Mulan first. She’s my favourite princess, not only did she save the whole of China but she looked kick-ass in armour!
We’ll have to go back to Disneyland to have a photo with Mulan….
Mulan is wandering around Disneyland California for the Lunar Year celebrations.
Mickey, Minnie, Chip and Dale have joined the celebrations as well.
Back to Mulan, little bears are very excited to watch the movie, again… 🙂
Dragon Day celebrates Mushu, the unsung hero from Mulan. He motivates. He inspires. He gets Mulan out of bed in the morning AND gives her a balanced breakfast.
Mushu is all about protecting those who are close to him.
He’s a great travel companion.
He always tries to cheer his friends up.
He’s super motivational.
He never leaves friends behind.
His one-liners are on point.
He’s not afraid to ask people for help.
He allows himself to get emotional.
And most important of all, he knows how to cut loose!
Mulan is getting a Disney live-action retelling. The film is being fast-tracked to be released in November 2018, 20 years after the release of the animated film.
Like the 1998 animated film, Mulan is based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, the daughter of an aged warrior who disguises herself as a man in order to take her father’s place in the army and go to war. Aided by her trusted dragon, Mushu, she becomes a skilled warrior and one of the country’s greatest heroines.
Mulan looks set to be the most intriguing live-action adaptation to date. It faces a challenge like no other Disney movie; it has to transcend culture, and appeal both to the Western audiences who are familiar only with Disney’s previous movie, and to the Chinese audiences who weren’t so struck with the original.
In the meantime, time to watch the continuing legend in Mulan 2.
Mushu is back 🙂
