Twitter User Claps Back at Haters Complaining About No Mushu in New ‘Mulan’

Chinese netizens are looking forward to the live-action adaptation of Disney’s “Mulan” after seeing the first official teaser.

 

Disney is doing the right thing with its portrayal for the legend of Hua Mulan in the upcoming live-action adaptation of the hit 1998 animated film, according to Twitter user @imwonwoo1796.

The user also added that the animated movie flopped and was criticized by Chinese moviegoers for “mocking” their culture, and continued to call out some people on how they wanted a talking dragon in the live-action.

There was no talking dragon in the original poem of Hua Mulan and she also served in the military for 12 years while hiding the fact that she’s a woman.

The Twitter user went on to list all the things Chinese people hated in the animated version that was removed in the live-action “Mulan,” including Mushu and the titular character’s love interest, Captain Li Shang.

It went on to explain that if Disney were to stick to its animated source material, then it would become the final nail in the coffin.

Although there were minor problems in the live-action “Mulan,” Chinese netizens still love the official teaser.

According to the Twitter user, the reception on Weibo has been positive.

The hashtag Hua Mulan has been viewed more than 1 billion times on Weibo with more than 700,000 comments about the topic, South China Morning Post reported.

“Mulan” is scheduled to hit theaters on March 27, 2020.
