Director Niki Caro’s action-drama film is an adaptation of “The Ballad of Mulan” (a Chinese folk song that dates back to the 6th century) and Disney’s 1998 animated adaptation of the same name. Starring Liu Yifei, Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, and Jet Li, it follows the epic journey that unfolds after Hua Mulan decides to disguise herself as a man to replace her father in the Imperial Chinese Army. As she strives for honor and glory in the battle against the Huns, she must also keep her true identity hidden from her superiors and comrades.~Augustine Chay

Overview: The 2020 version of Mulan is a live action movie that I wouldn’t quite call a remake of the 1998 release due to some key differences.
The Good: Lets start out with the build quality of the SteelBook. Like always, Best Buy has knocked it out of the park with the case and artwork. The case is sturdy and feels like it’ll last for generations definitely a good display piece on your bookshelf or wherever you keep your movies. The artwork on the interior case foreshadows at the story, which shows a civilian version of Mulan juxtaposed against an armored warrior one on the right.
The main thing you need to know about this movie is that it’s a much more serious retelling of the story than the animated one. There are no musical numbers in this movie and characters don’t randomly break out into songs. You will hear beautifully orchestrated versions of some of the melodies from the 1998 release, however, which is a welcome touch. Parents, be aware - the fights in this are graphic. Fa Mulan, who is well played by actress Liu Yifei, kicks some serious butt!
The plot of the movie is roughly paralleled to the animated version, but is updated nicely for 2020. This is a great movie about how women can be just as powerful and competent as men, potentially even more so. The cinematography is captivating, and events move the story forward at a brisk pace.
The Bad: You may not feel as invested in some of the side characters as you did in the original movie.
The Other: Disney spent over $200 million dollars producing this movie. Wow!
Finally received Mulan Bestbuy limited_version steelbook version is very beautiful. #liuyifei is a talent and beautiful actor. Disney best live action princess movie. Hope people all over the world can enjoy our asian culture.
Beautiful cinematography. Nice story. Could of had better character development. The movie should of been longer. 4k 2160p at its finest. Definitely eye candy. Attractive steel book. A movie the whole family can watch together. Great message in the movie about truth.
After waiting so long for disc to be available , I watched same day it was delivered ( at ti.e best buy used a company called : SHIPTI hope I have spelling right. It arrived next day ) and because of that I order EVERY FORMAT. I cried for Mulan and really cheered when she conquered the enemy, she even turned the bad lady to her side. For women movie is empowering. Such beautiful locations or scenes and best of all NO breaking out in songs, it was a really storytelling with characters who moved you.
Absolutely worth the wait. I admit was skeptical to watch.
To start I would like to give some advice, if you purchase expecting to watch a remake of a cartoon like all the other Disney movies throw that expectancy out the window. This movie is was a remake for 30 plus year old children like me who grew up watching Disney movies.
This was a Mulan and Mortal Kombat mix.
I loved that they somewhat incorporated the music of the cartoon into the movie. If you missed it when you watched it, watch it again and pay attention. Last tip, when you watch it forget the cartoon and watch it as if you heard the Mulan story for the first time. It won’t disappoint. The story it self was different but great.
I would also say that maybe little kids will not stay still and watch this. I feel like it was more for my inner child.
