Mulan/Mulan II Blu-ray/DVD 3 Disc Special Edition is out March 12! PREORDER HERE

Did you know that Mulan was released 15 years ago? Where did the time go? Sure I was in my early 20’s when it was released, but being the Disney fan I am I still saw it in the theater – and I had it on VHS (yes. VHS!)

Well times have changed and on March 12 you can get the Mulan/Mulan II Blu-ray/DVD 3 Disc Special Edition!

Mulan (based on a Chinese folk tale) follows the story of a young girl – a tomboy – with a dedication to her family. She makes the ultimate sacrifice to her loving father by posing as a young man so that she will go into the Imperial Army in order to save her father. She finds her own courage through her actions and the assurance of Mushu the dragon – her disgraced family guardian who accompanies her on her journey (along with a lucky cricket).

In Mulan II she is engaged to Shang, her former captain in the Imperial Army. The couple are given a secret mission – to escort three princesses to Mongolia to marry 3 princes in an effort to have an alliance between China and Qui Gong. Mushu discovers that if Mulan and Shang get married, his role as guardian would be gone, so he tries to separate them.

I have to say I LOVE both films. I have seen Mulan many times but this was my first time watching Mulan II. And although I kinda missed Eddie Murphy as Mushu (he is not the voice in Mulan II), I am happy about the addition of voice actress April Winchell, whom I have admired for a long time. Ming-Na reprises her role as Mulan, and she is perfect. Christina Aguilera sings the main song Reflection and it’s, well,  perfection!

It’s been great to introduce this Disney classic to my kids too – they of course LOVE Mushu and constantly want to watch him! Of course, I can’t blame them! And if Mulan’s singing voice sounds familiar, you are right – Lea Solanga also sung as Jasmine in Disney’s Aladdin!
