Disney's Live-Action Mulan: The Story
“Mulan” is the epic adventure of a fearless young woman who masquerades as a man in order to join the army and fight the Northern Invaders attacking China.
Hua Mulan is the oldest daughter of an honored warrior. She is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. When her country's leader, the Emperor of China, issues a decree stating that one man from each family must serve in China's Imperial Army, Hua Mulan takes it upon herself to take the place of her ailing father as Hua Jun, becoming one of China’s greatest warriors ever.
The story of the legendary warrior is one of China’s most popular folktales, and is still a part of the curriculum in Chinese schools today.
