Mulan Disney Plus

Disney's timeless classic about a strong female warrior has been reimagined in this live action film, available exclusively on Disney Plus.

As of Friday, September 4th the live action update of Mulan is now available for $29.99 on Disney's new streaming service Disney Plus. The plot revolves around the emperor of China's decree that one man from each family must help the Imperial Army defend their country against northern invaders. The protagonist disguises herself as a man to take her ailing father's place in the army, leading to a triumphant story of female strength featuring a ton of martial arts action. The film also features martial arts movie legends like Jet Li as The Emperor and Donnie Yen as Commander Tung. Star Yifei Liu fulfilled her role as Mulan while performing the vast majority of her own stunts, a feat that any martial artist can respect.


Reflecting the excitement about this film throughout the martial arts community, Century Martial Arts is hosting a free Mulan-inspired sword giveaway on their Facebook page.

Warning: An analogy is about to be used for effect. But not merely for effect. It is chosen intentionally because of the life-threatening nature of the subject matter. The analogy and thesis being that weight-cutting in MMA is proving to be similar to what happens in situations of domestic abuse. As stated, this is not used or mentioned lightly and it is in the frontal lobe that many families (including the writer's) have had the loss and bruises, so that here it is very much taken extreme seriously. The comparison is used completely wittingly with the full respect to those who suffer. It is actually that respect and the constant sight of suffering that instigated this communication. When we say of both situations that someone might literally die unless something changes, it is not hyperbole and further it is tough to find more pointed language to give it the seriousness it deserves.
