After procrastinating just a tad bit, I’ve finally got around to watching the new trailer for Mulan. And can I just say, this movie looks like it’s going to be AWESOME! Growing up, I was a big fan of the Disney movie. Who can forget Mushu, the little talking dragon. Eddie Murphy (voice of Mushu) is a comedic genius. He brought Mushu to life, having some of the funniest one-liners.
To my surprise, I read that Mushu is not going to be in this live-action movie. Was I sad at first, yes. Though, after reading a little bit more about the premise, I see that this movie is based more on the original tale of Hua Mulan. If you’re like me, you grew up on the Disney version, and that’s the only version you know. Am I embarrassed, definitely! Though I’m very thankful for the learning opportunity. After reading the premise, and learning about Hua Mulan, I’m even MORE excited that Disney has decided to go this route.
The story has a feeling of empowerment, courage, strength, and spirit, and the trailer definitely delivers on all these elements! The fight scenes look amazing, the cinematography is stunning, and the acting looks superb, this is certainly a recipe for a tremendously good movie!! Can’t wait to watch. Mulan comes out next year, and I’ll definitely be catching it.
