I just watched the trailer and it has 54k likes and 17k dislikes. That's ridiculous. I guess Disney should just keep making frame-by-frame remakes of their earlier shit since this isn't what people want. This is the most interested I've been in one of these remakes so far. I love the animated Mulan but that isn't why I'm so interested in this; Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorites and I still haven't seen, not do I have plans to see, the live action remake.

One, people are really mad that they cut the songs. I don't know why because other than "I'll Make a Man Out of You" the rest is really forgettable.

Two, the Hong Kong thing.

You don't like "Reflection?"

And on the topic of songs this is another thing that gives even more reinforcement to my "but why remake it" stance. Why would I want to hear Emma Watson signing the songs I like from Beauty and the Beast? If I want to hear the songs the original movie is still there. The instrumental arrangement of "Reflection" in this trailer sounds great and the inclusion of elements from the original legend are just the type of change that make a remake worth it to me. Not adding backstory to try to make Gaston more sympathetic or casting Kevin Hart as Mushu (because you know that's what it was going to be).

>Two, the Hong Kong thing.

I thought about the Hong Kong thing but when I watched the trailer yesterday and scanned the comments I didn't see any mention of it.

Adding up the concessions, it would be a roughly $60 outing, and since my daughter is all in on this, I'd be copping the day it dropped for 19.99 anyways.

All things considered, $30 for a purchase, under the current circumstances, is a decent price.

I normally don't watch Disney content. And because of that, the lack of depth to the story surprised me. But I think kids would like this.

The actor who played Mulan was really good as were all the performances.

The twist with the which was well done I thought.

At the very least it was good to see Asian representation, of both royalty, presents, and villains.

Maybe the worst of these remakes.

Great cinematography, and Tzi Ma is acting like there's an Oscar on the line. But the action is bland (inexcusable for something trying so hard to be a wuxia homage), the dialogue is dull, and the majority of the actors have little to do.

I think a lot of these remakes have been defined by the choices that make them *different* from the originals. I actually liked the idea of cutting the songs, and making Mulan's love interest a fellow soldier instead of her captain was a smart move... but the witch stuff is all unacceptably bad, as is this idea that Mulan uses Chi like the Force in Star Wars. It feels like a bunch of white Americans writing a movie about China-- which is, y'know, exactly what happened.

Just a huge disappointment.

this is such a crystal clear example of cultural representation through a White filter. which, I guess is typical Disney.
