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.
first lets start off with the other live action remakes disney has done... people have disliked the way they turned out to be, i for one have enjoyed them, all of them. so they heard peoples criticism and decided to go a different route with this one, and people didnt like it either. no one even knows what they want.
if you get this dont go thinking you're going to get the original mulan but in live action, this movie strays away from the original BIG time!
i liked the way it turned out to be, you should give this one a chance. its worth the watch
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
Enjoyed watching this so much! Everyone involved did a wonderful job, and this new take on the story is captivating. Yes it is different to the animated version, but in such a way you can love both as separate films based on the same story. I loved the original Disney film
Was a bit skeptical when it was announced that the live action would be quite different but the approach they took in my opinion adds a greater level of respect and dignity to the story of Mulan.
