Action and Adventure, Family, Science Fiction and Fantasy




This live-action adaptation of the classic Disney tale set in Imperial China brings the story to a new audience and takes the action to epic levels. Mulan is a bright and adventurous young woman who is at odds with society’s limiting views of young woman as delicate and needing to be at the service of potential husbands. When a section of the North is invaded, the Emperor of China sends his soldiers to recruit a man from every family to serve in the army. With no sons in the family and her frail father insistent on offering his services, Mulan cuts her hair and disguises herself as a young man, setting off to start training as one of the soldiers in the hope of saving her father and protecting her family. Based on the Chinese folk tale ‘The Ballad of Mulan’ this action-packed retelling includes the social commentary of the original film with its themes of gender and honor, while also including the story’s mythical elements.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
