Looks like it may be pretty good.
I'll continue to hope for a film about samurai, Tomoe Gozen.
Ever since reading the series of books about her by Jessica Amanda Salmonson during the 1980s; I've found female warriors intriguing.
"Disney's Mulan Remake Won't Be A Musical (And That's A Good Thing)"
"The 1998 version of Mulan as created by Disney is an odd beast. Like most films
of the ‘90s Disney renaissance, it’s based on pre-existing material, but it wasn’t a
story that would have been all that well-known to American and white audiences.
The Ballad of Hua Mulan was first transcribed in a collection of Chinese ballads in
the 6th century and, since then, it has endured as a cultural mainstay, with many
film and television adaptations made over the decades. It made sense for Disney
to want to have their own version of the story at a time when they were keen to
get a foothold back in the burgeoning Chinese entertainment market after briefly
being banned from the country. The final result is a popular film but one that is
still very American and an awkward fit because of that.
As with all Disney-fied adaptations of classic stories and world cultures, the basic
structure and themes of the Hua Mulan ballad were remolded to fit the company’s
brand, and softened in a way that made the story more “universal”, which at the
time mostly meant making it palatable for the presumed majority=white American
audiences (see the depiction of Arab and Middle Eastern culture as a homogeneous
mish-mash of various places and ideas in Aladdin, or how Belle’s France in Beauty
and the Beast is a checklist of French stereotypes). For Mulan, that meant a cast of
voice actors with American accents, the addition of a sassy talking animal sidekick
(another of Disney’s favored tropes), and changes to the story that made it more
like a Disney fairy-tale, such as the inclusion of an “I want something more” style
song to give the protagonist new motivations. Sometimes it works, and other times
it is a noticeably uncomfortable fit for this story. It’s also a questionable decision from a
culturally appropriative standpoint, and one that Disney may be keen to avoid in the future."
