In Disney’s live-action Mulan, a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. Masquerading as a man, Mulan steps in to keep her ailing father from serving in the Imperial Army and defend the country from Northern invaders. Tested every step of the way, it is an epic journey that transforms her into an honoured warrior.
