Based on a legend from medieval China, Mulan is the story of a girl who disguises herself as a man and goes to war in place of her father … Despite taking $300 million elsewhere, Mulan proved to be a substantial flop in the country of its heroine. The reason? Other than it having a rubbish release date, it seems that Disney was just as adept at disguising the title character. So, how different is their version from the source text?
I say “source text”, but Mulan is a folktale, so there are countless iterations that have been bandied about over the years. The earliest recorded version, Poem of Mulan, written sometime between 386 and 533 A.D., isn’t particularly long and doesn’t divulge that many details. It pretty much consists of “Mulan gets bored of weaving, goes to war instead of father, wins, comes home and carries on weaving”. Regardless of how badass it sounds, it’s not enough to be compared with a full-length feature film.
I’ve therefore picked what is thought to be the first ever “play” of Mulan for my comparison, the all-too-literally titled The Female Mulan Joins the Army in Place of her Father, by an arty chap named Xu Wei. It was composed during the late Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and apparently kick-started the Mulan legend for a new generation (albeit one nine hundred years after the first).
So, aside from the drastically different title, what else separates the Disney film from its revered ancestor? Click HERE to read Full Article
What does this have to do with being bisexual? Well, umm, err … actually not a thing.
Just thought since that now in at least in one version of this almost 2000 year folktale (remembering that it is 4711 AD so to speak by Chinese reckoning so that is not as old as it sounds to western ears) Mulan is now being portrayed as a bisexual warrior princess … noblewoman … well a person of 'good family’, people might be interested in the back-story and how this same character has been seen in different cultures. Plus the article includes a lot of nice pictures of how she has been portrayed over the centuries too. So, enjoy.
The fact that the one guy throws down his bag and goes to save the guy, but then he realizes he’s too late. And if you continue watching him, he like throws his hands up and then turns away. He probably feels disappointed that he couldn’t help, but he tried. I bet he didn’t even know the guy. And that really makes me not lose faith in everyone.
watched this atleast 5 times. too powerful not to reblog.
Everyone else kinda just runs back like the train is boutta explode or somethin.
