Fantastic movie. Not a typical female main character. Nice soundtrack reflection.

Formula Disney.

One of my favorite movies, and one of the best Disney has ever produced.

Mulan is one of the better Disney "princess" movies, but I don't recommend the sequel.

Mulan is definitely one of my favourite Disney characters. She is strong, independent, smart, and cares about her family. I think that this is a great movie for young girls, as Mulan doesn’t let the sexist society hold her back from protecting those that she loves. There is a lot of action, adventure, humour, and suspense in this movie, which makes it really entertaining and enjoyable to watch. Furthermore, the music is excellent, and sets the tone of the movie perfectly. I think that there are a lot of relatable aspects to this film, and it is very empowering. I would highly recommend this movie to other viewers! 5/5 - @PenelopeScriptor of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The first Mulan movie is one of the best movies Disney had produced during the late ’90s. It is a wonderful representation of a strong female character that takes place in China to fight in a war in place of her father. I adored the songs as they help progress the story more and keep the audiences interested all the way through. You know a Disney movie is good just by the first songs and I can say that strongly applies to Mulan. I feel as if the movie would be so much better if they did more research about the original story. There was a lot Disney missed like the concept that Mulan already knew how to fight, etc. Though, the Disney movie is still an absolute classic that empowers women which is why Disney chose to produce Mulan. It shows how women can do so much a man can do and that everyone is equal to each other. I highly recommend to watch this movie and share it with a friend who hasn’t already watched it. Many people I know who have watched it enjoyed it time and time again. 4.5/5.

Mulan is my absolute favourite Disney princess (although she isn’t formally a princess) because she is so incredibly brave, selfless, and strong. Based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, this film follows the story of a young girl named Mulan who disguises herself as a man in order to protect her elderly father by taking his place in the war. The animation is vibrant, beautiful, and brings this fantastic story to life. All young girls need to see this film to realize that it’s important to be strong and independent instead of waiting around for a prince to save you. I would rate it 5/5 stars.

Fun family film, gorgeously animated, and with a great message for young girls about persevering in the face of adversity.
Actress Ming-Na ("The Joy Luck Club") wonderfully voices the vulnerable but plucky Mulan, and Eddie Murphy is a riot as Mushu, her pugnacious pint-sized guardian dragon.
BD Wong is just fine voicing the studly young soldier-leader Shang; he is matched with amazing tonal accuracy by Donny Osmond who provides Shang's singing voice (the rousing "I'll Make a Man Out of You").
Soon-Tek Oh (whose name rings a bell from recurrent and guest appearances on classic TV series like "Hawaii Five-O," "M*A*S*H" and "Magnum P.I." among other accomplishments) voices Mulan's proud and loving father, Fa Zhou; Pat Morita ("The Karate Kid" and other film and TV appearances too numerous to name) provides the voice for the wise and witty Emperor; and George Takei (the Out and Proud star of "To Be Takei" and Mr. Sulu from the original "Star Trek") voices the First Ancestor.
Oh--a special nod of affection to the great June Foray, who provides the voice of Mulan's beloved Grandmother Fa. Miss Foray is at this writing 99 years young, and is legendary in the voice acting business for her work in classic cartoons. She was the voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel, Natasha Fatale and others in "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle," Wilma Flintstone in the original Hanna-Barbera cartoon "The Flintstones," and Witch Hazel (among others) in various classic Bugs Bunny cartoons. She even voices Granny in the updated "Looney Tunes Show." The lady is an industry legend--her credits date back to 1943!

This is one of my favourite Disney movies. A classic tale of family defiance that pays off in the end, with a great soundtrack.

I love this movie! This is a great story! I love all the songs, that actually tell the viewer something important! This movie needs to be watched! I want more reviews also, saying how great this movie is!

This movie is really good...but different from the original story. For instance, there was no lover, no dragon, no cricket, no grandma and there was a little brother in the original story.

"The truth is we're both frauds. Your ancestors never sent me, they don't even like me. But you risked your life to help people you love. I risked your life to help myself. At least you had good intentions. (to Cri-kee): What? What do you mean you're not lucky? You *lied* to me? (to Mulan's horse) And what are you, a sheep?" - Mushu
