The classic animated movie is well loved amongst Disney fans, so everyone is waiting on edge to see the live action verision of the film. According to co-chairman and chief creative officer at Walt Disney Studios, Alan Horn, he states that the pandemic has not changed the message of the movie, which is about hope and perserverance. If you haven’t seen the movie, then you don’t know that it’s about a young chinese women who goes to war in her father’s place, undercover as a man because she wants to prove who she really is and not who her family wants her to be. It’s a powerful movie with a power ballad, Reflection, that sets the tone for the movie. Horn, also states that they will continue to make accomendations to the release as the conditions require.

Alan Bergman, another chairman at Walt Disney studios, states that the film was meant to be on the big screen. He commended the cast and director Niki Caro for creating an epic film and how it’s for audiences around the globe to enjoy and experience together.

The movie is going to be epic, and Mulan is such an inspiring character, and definitely one to admire. She isn’t your average Disney heroine in the slightest and she sets the bar high for girl power in the Disney universe. So, I have no doubt how amazing this film is.
