  Mulan: Special Edition DVD Review
Mulan has to pass herself off as a man to be a soldier in the army.
Though she's depicted as much as a ordinary, down-to-earth girl as she is a warrior heroine, Mulan distinguishes herself as a kind of antithesis to the princess passivity that some have lamented in the films from Disney's yesteryear.
Mulan is housed in a standard-width fl dual keepcase, and housed in a cardboard slipcover which doesn't open up or serve any purpose other than decoratively duplicating all of the artwork and text from the case.

  Mulan
Mulan, the daughter of a military hero now crippled from old wounds, has been told all her life that a woman's honor depends on her role as a dutiful, modest daughter and wife.
Mulan's commander Shang has a lot to live up to as well, being the son of the general.

 Mulan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Mulan herself (drawn to resemble The Joy Luck Club's Ming-Na Wen, her speaking voice) is a winner, and the story is designed to appeal to both boys (lots of action) and girls (a woman in the middle of all that action, plus a little romance): few summer movies will surpass it.
So Mulan cuts her hair, grabs his commission, and rides out to take his place, aided by a feckless jive-talking red dragon (he's sent, sort of, by her Ancestors) named Mushu (Eddie Murphy) and a good-luck cricket named Cri-Kee.
The best thing about Mulan is Mulan herself: the "Gotta be me/Gotta find out who I am" formula may be rote, but she has her own style, as when, on her way to the Matchmaker, she finds the move that unlocks a café game of Go (this is one smart fortune cookie).

Mulan, in fact, has more in common with male Disney leads than the female Disney leads.
When Mulan told them she had an idea to help the emperor faster, they were the first to her side, even when Shang was still reluctant to do so.
I would also like to point out that Mulan is really not "historical," like Joan of Arc, but rather she is a legend, much like Hercules and Aladdin, who also come from the realm of myth, stories and legends.
