Disney is only doing Mulan the way they are because Bob Iger loves to slurp Chinese cum.

Does China even want Disney's take on Mulan? Don't they already have several adaptations of their own which would be made by and for Chinese people? I'm not sure what the remake could really offer.

The best thing the remake could offer is to give some big opportunities to asian actors. That's the best way disney can push their "inclusiveness" agenda while being more accurate to the source material. It's infinitely better than what they're doing to the little mermaid.

Probably not. I'm not interested in the new live action rehashes if you want my honest opinion. I really hate sounding like this old timer but everything was perfect the way it was. What is the point of this? But I did enjoy the new Mary Poppins film, I took my wife's daughter to go see it.

Mulan I couldn't give two fucks about but Lil Mermoof is my first waifu. The mouse casting a black girl isn't offensive to me because I don't like black actors playing white characters, it's more that I don't find the actress they cast, and for that matter most black women, that attractive. So I'm just disappointed I won't see my waifu translated into 3D.

Still racist, but not as racist. Although Terry Crews as Triton might make it worth it.

It's so obvious they are trying to appeal to chinese audiences with Mulan. Disney can't get a foot hold in China so they make a big stink to try and appeal to the CCP's boner for itself so they can make more money.

Nope. She decline the military promotion and returned home in the original. In an adaption created by a completely different writer, she might had been Tom Kinged.

>But the general excitement has been tempered by some serious criticism. The original Mulan tale comes from a ballad about a girl born in northern China during the Northern and Southern dynasties period, around the 5th century A.D. The time period and location are key to the story, as her journey kicks off because of the forced conscription to fight invaders threatening the northern border.

Yet the Disney trailer shows Mulan living in a round “tulou” house, a traditional communal living structure of the Hakka people unique to coastal, southern Fujian province that became widespread in the much later Ming dynasty — more than a thousand years later.

“Disney shouldn’t be so careless and just think that because tulou are beautiful, they can make Mulan live in one. She’s not Fujianese!” wrote one detractor who wondered how Mulan would manage to make it north to fight the Huns, adding: “I guess this Mulan has to take the subway out to join the army?”

Another PhD student expressed a similar sentiment in a video that has itself gone viral, racking up some 8 million views in two days. “This film is just trying to ingratiate itself to Western audiences. It’s like they thought, oh, this element is really Chinese, it’s very Oriental, so I’m going to shove it into the film to make everyone feel this is a very ‘Chinese’ film,” he said.

>This mess of mixing unrelated Oriental elements is really disrespectful of non-Western cultures and audiences,” he added. “This is not about [the producers] truly appreciating elements of a culture that is different from Hollywood’s, but using them to create something that [Americans] find comfortable and appealing.”

Disney's Little Mermaid wasn't true to the original story from the beginning. Also the RACISTING has been a very enjoyable rollercoaster to watch.

>>108656832
Live action is cheaper to hold onto their copyrights. Disney well and truly does not give a shit about these and they only exist to renew interest in the animated-style toys. The fact that adults are giving them so much publicity ala SOULLESS LION KING and MUH BLACKS is a big win
