It is over 20 years since the animated film Mulan captured the world’s hearts, and now Disney has released a spectacular live-action remake to watch at home.
Based on Chinese folklore, Hua Mulan is an extraordinary girl who defies tradition to protect her family and her country on the battlefield.

When the Emperor decrees that every family must supply one man to fight invaders from the north, Mulan stands in for her ailing father. Disguising herself as a man, Mulan joins the Imperial Army, where her boundless chi (life force) is put to the test against the enemy hordes.
Described by The Telegraph’s film critic Robbie Collin as “visually stunning”, the action propels us from a fairy-tale village to the breathtaking steppe, up snowy peaks and into the heart of the Imperial City.
Yifei Liu is spellbinding in the title role, playing both action hero and girl coming of age. A role model for viewers of all ages, Mulan overcomes her fears to let her light shine out. Plus, her combat skills put those beefy men to shame.
