    Synopsis from Apple Trailers

    When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders attacking China, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation - and a proud father.

    I’m glad they are keeping the traditional xiào meaning behind the story

    I think all these trailer based think pieces are silly and I do think this looks great, but I also do think that taking the singing out of it is a little odd.

    Also I loved Mushu but that I understand.

    Nuke the site from orbit. The only way to be sure Prestigious

    Personally think it would be really weird if there was singing in this

    Yeah I guess that's true. What I mean is, they seem to have made a Mulan film that would be weird with singing, rather than "remaking" their Mulan film that was great with singing. I found that an odd move because they did not do that with Aladdin or Beauty and the Beast. I just did not expect it is all.

    They want that sweet, sweet Chinese box office money and they weren't going to get it with a direct remake. That's really the only reason they took this more realistic route here.

    Whatever the reason, we are benefiting from it.
    A live action retelling of the original ballad with a Hollywood budget excites me more than a live action version of the animated film.

    Liu Yifei’s quote reads as “I support the Hong Kong police. You can hit me now” in response to the police brutality. Unfortunately not surprising as Chinese actors never stand up against who funds their wallet.

    I really want to enjoy this movie but every time I see Yifei’s face I just see a CCP slave. It’s going to take me out of film due to her actually portraying a heroic character with a spine.

    The music and cinematography both seem pretty good.

    we must be nothing less than fabulous Prestigious

    The line about making men out of them was some clunky fan service I could've done w/out, but otherwise, still looks good.
     
  24. Looks great. Loved that shot of those guys jumping off the horses.
