74 Thoughts I Had While Watching Mulan

Dishonor on you.

1. Fun fact: Mulan is the only princess who’s not actually a princess- she has no ties to royalty whatsoever and is only part of the official lineup because she embodies the traits of a princess.

2. I’ve never been to the Great Wall of China, but I feel confident that it would be difficult to catapult over the wall.

3. Does Shan Yu scare anyone else?

4. It’s very noble of the Emperor to not want any protection for himself.

5. Mulan writing the answers on her arm were goals for my math tests in college.

6. Little Brother and Cri-Kee are two of my favorite sidekicks.

7. I wish my dad would pray for me not to be single anymore.

8. Grandmother Fa is hands down the best character in this movie.

9. Mulan is upset that she’s getting a bath and a makeover but I would gladly take a free makeover. Preferably from MAC.

10. She definitely started the wave of bad ass princesses and most relatable.

11. I am also clumsy AF so I feel this scene with the matchmaker.

12. Fun fact: the singing voice of Mulan is the same woman who was the singing voice of Jasmine.

13. Even in cartoon form China looks beautiful and I can’t wait to visit both Disney parks there.

14. I like how the town has a guy who sits in a lookout tower just for the purpose of telling you when the government is on the way.

15. Mulan: the OG Katniss volunteering to go to war in her father’s place.

16. I’m not sure how her father can try and put her in her “place” when he’s known her for sixteen years and knows how independent she is.

17. I wish I could cut my hair like Mulan cuts hers with a sword and also look that good with a bob.

18. But also she had great hair so it’s kind of tragic.

19. Eddie Murphy is the greatest thing to happen to Disney since Robin Williams. Get this man into the Disney Legends stat.

20. Why did the ancestors choose this prayer to answer instead of allowing her not to be clumsy for the day?

21. Are we going to ignore the fact that it seemed like somehow Mushu got someone decapitated?

22. If this statue was supposed to wake up, does that mean Mushu killed the Great Stone Dragon?

23. Mushu translating for Cri-Kee is giving me major R2D2 and C3PO vibes. Or Han and Chewie. Or anyone who has this type of translation relationship.

24. Have I mentioned that Shan-Yu is scary?

25. Mulan practicing her “man” voice is what I sound like when I try to sing in lower keys.

26. Khan is one of the prettiest Disney horses out there and I want him.

28. Cracks me up every time.

29. With the advice Mushu originally gives, I’m surprised no one punched Mulan in the face.

30. It should bother me that the men in Disney movies increase in handsomeness because they ARE cartoons, but it doesn’t. They’re hot. Sue me.

31. Why is Mulan’s armor different than everyone else’s?

32. Mulan thought of everything from cutting her hair to looking like a man but she forgot to think of a name.

33. I would love for someone to wake me up with a happy face of eggs and bacon.

34. Mushu is a great motivational speaker and I need him in my life.

35. I feel like since the Huns have already invaded they don’t really have time to train warriors but okay.

36. Are you even a Disney fan if you don’t belt "I'll Make a Man Out of You" at the top of your lungs whenever it comes on?

37. “Did they send me daughters when I asked for sons”, “I’ll make a man out of you” this song is just full of metaphors about Mulan.


39. The music overtook me. I’m back.

40. Mulan not doing well in the first half of this is what I look like at the gym.

41. Shan Yu is low key plotting to kill a child and he’s just so evil.

42. I would not wanting to go swimming with naked men, either, Mulan. Unless that pool was filled with Zac Efron, Idris Elba, and Stephen Amell.

43. It’s nice that Mulan likes Shang even though he’s been so tough on her.

44. This scene change from “A Girl Worth Fighting For” to the ravaged camp and dead soldiers is such a quick transition from happy to depressing and I am not here for it.

45. Does Shang automatically become the General or does lineage not matter?

46. I still would like to know what exactly Mushu did to shoot off the canon that gave away their location.

47. Mulan picked up Mushu but not Cri-Kee even though Cri-Kee is too small to run after them.

48. I’m not sure if I’m more scared of the Huns, Shan-Yu himself, or Hayabusa (his falcon).

49. For those wondering, no I did not look up the name of the falcon. I am just full of Disney knowledge.

50. Mulan has excellent war strategy for never being in the army.

51. Can we pause for a second and look at how beautifully filmed this scene was?

52. Even the avalanche. God I love animation.

53. Knowing all the animals survive this does nothing to lessen my anxiety about them getting crushed by the snow.

54. Honestly Mulan has some strength. I would’ve passed out from a paper cut, let alone a sword going through me.

55. I never noticed that the doctor probably told Shang that Mulan was a woman before he went in the tent.

56. Taking her hair down does not prove that she’s a woman. Shang has long hair.

57. Mulan is way too hard on herself. I can barely get out of bed let alone impersonate my father for war.

58. How on earth did the Huns possibly survive that avalanche.

59. “They popped out of the snow! Like daisies!” Mushu shares my sentiment.

60. How does Shang know Mulan’s name?

61. Honestly, I’m with Shang. There’s a big different between trusting her and trusting Ping. She lied to him the entire time.

62. Where did they get those dresses to dress up in?

63. Chien Po saving the Emperor gives me life.

64. How did Mulan get her shoe back after throwing it at Shan Yu?

65. These are the questions that keep me up at night.

66. Mushu and Cri-Kee just made a Batman and Robin joke and I’ve never laughed so hard or loved Disney so much.

67. Mulan getting the sword back from Shan Yu was awesome.

68. But I’ll be honest, shooting a firework into someone is a pretty violent death.

69. Chi Fu yelling at Mulan after she just SAVED CHINA is too much.

70. The Emperor gets it. She literally saved the country she should be bowed to.

71. But really, who turns down a position with the Emperor? She has guts.

72. “You fight good”, an accurate depiction of me trying to flirt.

73. The Emperor scolding Shang for not being with Mulan is fabulous. I need him to go yell at all the guys that have turned me down.

74. “Would you like to stay forever” I need more Grandmother Fa and so did this movie.
