Thanks, Disney, for finally empowering a woman. A young girl, Mulan, doesn't fit the idea of a "perfect woman," and when her father is about to be forced to return to war (which he'll probably die in, to be honest), she just chops off her hair, dons some armor, and saves all of China. And she still gets the guy (which makes us think, did the General who fell for her, while she was still in drag, have to struggle with his sexuality a little bit? Why didn't you go there, Disney!?).
In between covering hard topics like family honor and breaking traditional gender roles, Mulan remained lighthearted, fun, and musical. And it's got a talking dragon! —TA
