For once disney decides to stick with the original story, a more realistic remake with an amazing all-Asian cast and all you care is about mushu. Go back to watch the animated version or go off I guess #mulan pic.twitter.com/1N7OiN9jNb

According to Disney, the movie is based on “The Ballad of Mulan”, the original Chinese poem, and not the 90s animation.
