  1. Mulan is one of my favorite Disney movies. While you can tell they chose her to challenge gender roles (this also applies to the men in the film, who were obsessed with strength) I think they handled it well. Plus the songs were great!

  2. I’m just glad there were no tentacles involved.

  3. Mulan is one of my favorite Disney princesses. In fact, after I saw Mulan as a kid I learned how to eat with chopsticks. I’m serious. ^.^ I never tried to look at the deeper stuff though.

  4. This is my favourite Disney film. I have actually only have ever seen it in Mandarin (go Jackie Chan singing I will make a man out of you), but I loved seeing it show that it is what we do, not what we are, which defines us.

  5. And now I have the song stuck in my head for the rest of the year….

  6. Or, as Lindy said in Car Wash, “Honey, I’m more man than you’ll ever be and more woman than you’ll ever get!”

  7. “Take this, so the people will know what you have done for me.
    And take this, so the world will know what you have done for China.”

    Gets me every time.
