MULAN on Disney Plus!
If you’re wondering Niki Caro's live-action adaptation of the classic Disney MULAN is worth spending the $29.99 on Disney +, YES IT IS!!
MULAN will be available on Disney+ this Labor Day weekend to subscribers in the U.S. and select international markets. Keep in mind, when you pay for the film it will be accessible as long as it remain on Disney +.
Mulan is exactly what we need right now, a story about courage, truth and honor.
An inspirational movie that’s filled with hope and valor. Why is MULAN important, because we need representation. It’s crucial that we reach a new generation of children and let them know, that they can be anything they want! That we must not shy away from darkness but head towards it in order to see the light. The resilience you face during adversity makes you who you are. You can be fierce and exquisite at the same time without compromising who you are and whom you’ll become.
MULAN, visually is a spectacular movie, all the while you’re learning that life is a journey that must be travelled, it’s not the destination that makes you, it’s the daily adventure that shapes your life and way of thinking.
I can’t recommend MULAN enough, it will touch your heart and have you soaring for greater heights. I believe if we all believe in our hearts that we are similar to a Phoenix bird, that even in ash we could rise again, we’d create so much magic around us that we’d blow ourselves away with what we could accomplish.
MULAN is a must see, don’t wait!
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.
