Hello, everyone! I'm going to rank the outfits Mulan wears throughout her movie in this article. Let's get started.



Soldier outfit
I like it but it's nothing that much special. The other dresses are definitely more beautiful. This is just the outfit she wears as a soldier.



The training outfit
This one actually fits Mulan a lot and she looks prettier wearing this at the end. Overall it is lovely.



The green, blue and yellow dress
I actually like this dress a lot. I like the multi colors. It looks comfortable and really pretty.


The blue dress
I love the colors in this dress. It also looks very comfortable. It fits Mulan a lot. I love the design and the style of this dress.



The red dress
The colors of this dress are amazing. Mulan looks beautiful in this dress. This is one of the best Disney princess dresses.

I love how selfless (not so much though), caring and self-sacrificing she is. I admire her for fearlessly joining the army to save her father and to prove that she can do things right. She doesn't give up easily first, when Shang told her that she was unsuitable she was about to go but she looked back and tried. Secondly, when they found out she was a girl she almost gave up but after knowing that the huns are alive she knew what to do. I don't think she's lazy like some people would say. I like that she tried hard to make her family proud.

She's encouraging, brave and she really wanted to bring honor to her family. She tried hard to bring honor to her family and that's really admirable.

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.



Written In Stone parts 1-3
The ancestors:
Laozi represents Honor and is the leader of the group. Lin represents Loyalty and is the hardest on Mulan; Lin doesn't appreciate any challenges to the old-world belief system. Zhang represents Strength, the strong silent type. Hong represents Destiny and is Laozi's right-hand man. Yun represents Love and is like mother figure to Mulan that eventually encourages the others to support Mulan for who she is.

Written in stone is opening of the play, they have 5 kind of main ancestor as presenters of the story. The song presents Ancient China and people's view of the world. It tells each persons' different duty,...

I thought this might interest some people and I had actually quite fun. I found most my information from link (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.


Fa Mulan
Fa is Mulan's surname, Chinese put it before first name. Mulan is often given surname name, Hua, which means flower and Cantonese spells it Fa. Mulan itself means "magnolia".



Li
Li is both Shang and his father's surname and Mulan's mother's name. It means "plum", but as a first name it means "beautiful".

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 that I think are misguided at best.
Mulan is subservient to Shang when she’s in the army
Seriously, if you don’t know enough about the structure of the military not to be offended by this…

Mulan getting together with Shang is counterproductive because the movie feels the need to justify the fact that she couldn’t pass the matchmaker’s test at the beginning

The sun was rising all over China , the middle kingdom . The rays of the sun touched the valleys , farms , citys , county , and finally , Mulan's home .

It was going to be the most amazing day in Mulan's life . Not too long ago , the engagement party had been celebrated and now , it was her wedding .

" Mulan ! Mulan ! " She turned and saw Mushu . With tears in his eyes , her ran up and hugged her . " I can't believe my big girl's getting married ! " he yelled . " Uh huh . Better not mess us up . " Mulan said .

Mushu gulped , " Ehe . That was the last time , now that the temples have been combined , ill be your gaurdian for ever ;D " Mulan giggled .

" Okay then , now go somewhere else , i need to change . " said , Mulan .


Mulan's mother came in with some of the village girls and Mushu rushed away . They applied make up on her , did her hair and helped her with her dress . Her father came in and led her out to the ceremony .

So hi every one, this is my very first article so please forgive me if I blew something. This was actually part of my english portfolio which I made a few months ago. I added few mistakes more after that because it really annoyed me that I couldn't find any big article about Mulan's mistakes with pictures. At least I didn't find such thing in fanpop so now I made one.
I'm sorry the explanations are so short and stupid but I hope you get all mistakes from the pictures. Please tell me if you know some mistakes which I didn't notice. :)


Mulan's notes

Mulan wrote notes on her right arm but when she let Little Brother out it disappeared and later we can see them again. I also found out Mulan used simplified characters which are used in China today though in Mulan's time they didn't exist.



Make-up

Mulan's sleeve is clean after she wiped her make-up off.

OMG Where do i start she`s so diffrent from the normal kind princesses and i love her personality and how she went to war to protect him she is also very brave and i think she has nice asian eyes and also she saves china and she also makes me laugh with tears espically the matchmaker scene

The Movie is AMAZING it has iconic characters and who could forget the darling mushu and cri kee and the movie is not based on romance but it still is a good disney princess movie.

The Songs
Honor to us all
The first time i heard this songs it was stuck in my head and its a good first song its shows how mulan is not really on the feminie side.

Reflection
is a heart breaking song it makes me upset and it shows how she does`nt want to pretend to be something she wants.

ill make a man out of you

where do i begin this is my favourite song of all time its so iconic every disney fan will know it and its just so ahh i just cant describe it its just so amazing.

Mulan is the 36th Animated feature and it is a part of the Disney Renaissance.

Introduction
The movie Mulan is based on the legends and The Ballad of Mulan.

Mulan originally began as a short, straight-to-video film titled "China Doll" about an oppressed and miserable Chinese girl who is whisked away by a British Prince Charming to happiness in the West. Then Disney consultant and children's book writer Robert San Souci suggested making a movie of the Chinese poem, "The Song of Fa Mu Lan" and Disney combined the two separate projects.

Development for Mulan began in 1994, after the production team sent a select group of artistic supervisors to China for three weeks to take photographs and drawings of local landmarks for inspiration; and to soak up local culture. The filmmakers decided to change Mulan's character to make her more appealing and selfless and turn the art style closer to Chinese painting, with watercolor and simpler design - opposed to the details of The Lion King and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

I hope no one sees through my disguise.
I know what I’ve done is not very wise.
But I stand behind my choice.
When this is all said and done hopefully my family will rejoice.
My Father is just too old and weak,
And won’t take any of our critique.
So I decided to go in his place.
I left in the middle of the night without a trace.
I have to act brave and strong,
And hopefully nothing will go wrong.
But something has messed up my plan.
I think I’m falling in love with a man.
No, not a soldier, my Captain!
I don’t really know how it happened or when.
I do know that he doesn’t feel the same.
I am, after all, a “man”, or so I claim.
I have to keep my feelings tucked away inside.
And my feminine traits I must hide.
I have to focus on my job,
And try not to sob.
I must remember why I am here,
My reasons for coming were sincere.
I have to get him out of my head.
