Inspired by a Chinese folk tale, this animated feature follows the daring adventures of Mulan, a young woman in ancient China whose irrepressible spirit clashes with her tradition-bound society. When her country is forced into war by the invading Hun army, the Emperor drafts a man from each family to join the Imperial Army. Mulan's elderly father volunteers. Mulan objects and takes her ailing father’s conscription notice and joins the Chinese army in order to save his life. With the support of Mushu - her feisty, fire-breathing “wanna-be” guardian dragon - Mulan disguises herself as a man, trains to become a brave and disciplined warrior and in a bold and selfless act of courage, brings victory to her country and honour to her family.
