Mulan is without a doubt among the greatest Disney movies ever made, and I would stand by the statement even with a horde of bloodthirsty Huns rampaging toward me on a mountain. I mean, how many Disney princesses can endure that kind of onslaught and single-handedly thwart it? JUST ONE.
Now that Disney has announced plans for a live-action remake, Mulan fans everywhere are clamoring to know more. I, on the other hand, think we need to take a moment and get back to the roots of the story. Before we get all hyped up on a new movie, let's make sure that we've got the original down first.
