I haven't ever seen the whole Mulan Jr. but I have listened it's songs many time. First I was just bored and was going to make simple poll but I realised there's too many options which most of people should listen. Most of Mulan jr's songs are different versions of movies songs or deleted songs. I don't know if this is review or comparison between the play and the movie or something else, I just started to write.
I thought this might interest some people and I had actually quite fun. I found most my information from there (great webside by the way) and some I checked myself. I put meanings really simply here so if you want to read more detais watch link above. Please correct me if any name is wrong or there's more meanings in it.
All pictures are made by me, partly because I felt I otherwise get away with this too easy (just copying another site) and partly because I have this strange obsession to draw.
There are, of course, plenty of movies to play with gender roles and attempt to make a point about the equality of men and women. However, I personally find Mulan to be the most successful of these films (at least of those I’ve seen.) I think it does a very good job of highlighting the issues without preaching about them, but more than anything else, I think the way the characters and their development are handled the best I’ve ever seen them.
Now, in true me fashion, I want to start by defending against some arguments I’ve seen against Mulan’s handling of gender roles...
