Look, I wanted the songs too. I wanted the Mulan from my childhood. And yet, when the trailer ends with Mulan woving that she’ll “bring honor to us all,” my eyes filled with tears.
Perhaps I also want this. Perhaps, I can still keep the Mulan of “I’ll Make A Man Out of You” and enjoy this version. Maybe Disney can do something different with one of those properties we adore, and make a good film out of it.
The first full-length trailer for the movie gives us hope. The Disney princesses we know and love have been changing, growing, showing us the true power and strength that comes from being a woman, and Mulan couldn’t be left behind.
Check out the trailer here and then come share your impressions with us. Do you love it? Do you still miss the songs? Will you be watching?
Mulan is set to be released March 25th, 2020.
