I watched the Mulan (2020) movie over the holidays and I was very pleased with the overall adaptation. The original Mulan movie was one of my fave Disney movies as a child so I was very excited to check this out. This movie is much more action-packed than the original. An all-around great martial arts epic!
The description of Mulan (2020), as stated on iTunes, is:
"Acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro brings the epic tale of China’s legendary warrior to life in Disney’s Mulan, in which a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. 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, 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."
