Ultimately, the live-action “Mulan” was a disappointment. I was so excited to see more Asian representation on the American silver-screen and mourned the movie’s delayed release. However, I could not enjoy the movie knowing that Disney had wasted so much potential (and money) on this pathetic shell of “Mulan.” I didn’t have to look hard to find someone else who felt as dissatisfied as I was.
As a person who grew up on Disney animated films and adored their inspiring stories, I felt let down by this “Mulan.” In their future endeavors, I hope that Disney can learn from their mistakes and reignite that hope and joy in their audience, let us believe that dreams can really come true.
Because during these difficult times, don’t we all need a little more wonder in our lives?
