“I think the best memory I have involving Mulan is when I was a little kid I didn’t understand why Mulan was so nervous about being naked in the pond with Ling, Yao, and Chien Po. At the time I didn’t know anything about the difference between the male/female bodies so now that I’m an adult the scene is so much more funny to me”

“I’m so pleasantly surprised that Disney chose an “older” actress to play the live-action Mulan (Liu Yifei is in her early 30’s). It makes me hopeful that maybe in the future we’ll have more Disney Princesses/Heroines who are canonically 21+, like Elsa and Kida. Not that there’s anything wrong with the classic teenage princesses, but I do think it’s good to show that you’re never too old to be a princess!”

I’ve always wanted to be the Mulan park character but I don’t audition because I don’t want to Hispanic-wash her, I’ve been told that I’m a dead ringer for her but it would be really hard and sad for me that she would be performed in the park by someone who isn’t actually asian. I wish she was a regular at the park and not just a Halloween appearance

“TRIGGER WARNING: 

When I was depressed and suicidal I would often listen to “Reflection” from Mulan. It summed up how I felt at the time. Now, when I hear it, I am taken back to how sad I felt.”

When I was younger, I used to watch Mulan II a lot (despite not owning the first one). I never saw it again until 2015, when my teacher put it on for the class after the first one. I forgot how nostalgic the movie was for me, and I became happy. Now, both Mulan movies have a special place in my heart.

I’ve heard a great deal about you, Fa Mulan. You stole your father’s armor, ran away from home, impersonated a soldier, deceived your commanding officer, dishonored the Chinese Army, destroyed my palace, and… you have saved us all.

“I want to come out to my family, but I’m afraid of their possible reactions since they’re pretty conservative. “Reflection” has been on repeat on my playlist because of that, because of the line “If I were truly to be myself, I would break my family’s heart."”
