301: Mulan vs. Mulan

Today, Laura Sirikul (@lsirikul of Nerdist / Nerds of Color / The Hollywood Reporter) joins us to discuss her Mulan fandom. She grew up reading the ballad of Mulan as a kid and explains how important it was seeing a Disney character that looked like her. Laura also shares stories of when she visited the live-action Mulan set in New Zealand and attended the world premiere in Hollywood! We will also discuss Mulan vs. the live action Mulan, but will issue a spoiler-warning before we go into that part. So it’s spoiler-free for a good hour!

  1. Hey, hey! I just listened to this one, guys, and really enjoyed it! I was of much the same opinion as all of you about the new Mulan. It was enjoyable and I liked it as its own thing but, without the music, humor, and superior themes of the animated version, it really can’t compare. I did think the witch was a cool addition though. As for my favorite Disney live action remake, I’ve got to go with The Jungle Book. This may be heresy but I think it’s the only one of the live action remakes that I actually PREFER to the animated original!
