Has it really been 15 years since Disney's Mulan enchanted us with its story of courage, honour, determination, perseverance, and love? Yes, it was really 15 years ago that I first heard the song "I'll Make a Man Out of You", the haunting melodic score that still gives me chills to this day. And now, in celebration of Mulan's 15th anniversary, it is offered for the first time in Blu-ray High Definition with newly digitally mastered picture and sound!
Mulan has been packaged together with Mulan II into a 2-movie collection that your family will enjoy! It is a 3-disc special edition available on blu-ray/DVD combo pack, to give you a choice of viewing options.
The Mulan story is the retelling of an old Chinese folktale about a young women, Fa Mulan (Ming-Na Wen), who disguises herself as a man in order to join the army and fight the invading Huns. Why would someone go to such great lengths to do this, you may wonder? Mulan does this courageous and selfless act to protect her injured father, who has been conscripted into the army. She takes his place and enlists in the army so that he may survive and rest at home.
Of course, with every Disney movie, you can count on finding a friend along the way! In this case, the friend is tiny disgraced dragon Mushu (Eddie Murphy). Mushu is a big personality in a little dragon's body, voice acted wonderfully, as you would expect from comedian Murphy!
Having arrived safely in training camp, Mulan meets Captain Li Shang (BD Wong), who teaches her how to be a great warrior, find her "center", and to think creatively. Li Shang eventually becomes Mulan's love interest and romance blooms by the end of the film.
If you have not seen the movie, or have not seen it recently, then you'll want to add the Mulan two-movie collection to your family library! It's a family-friendly movie with a great story, animation and wonderful songs. Some of the singers that lend their voice to Mulan include superstar Lea Salonga and Donny Osmond, so you're in for a big treat!
