    You have probably already watched the Disney movie “Mulan,” and you know that this hero would be your favorite Disney princess if she were part of royalty in China. But did you know that, even though we’ll never know if she existed or not, her fairy tale was actually based on a story that was told centuries ago? This is why we are showing you the messed up origins of Mulan.
    In the Disney movie, Mulan was supposed to become a housewife like many other women, but she failed the test with the matchmaker. This is why she decided that she was going to take her father’s place and her family was shocked when they found out about her decision. What happened in the original story?
    We all know that Mulan was not very skilled when she joined the army and she had to work hard to learn how to fight like a man in the movie. But in the original fairy tale, she already knew how to fight and practiced martial arts with her father.
    And we won’t forget about the love story with Li Shang. In one of the original tales, our favorite hero also fell in love with a man named Jin Yong. When he found out that she was a woman, he became more attached to her. Unfortunately, we don’t know how this fairy tale ended.
    Stay tuned if you want to hear more about the messed up origins of Mulan like what happened when she revealed that she was a woman and how her story really ended. So which tale do you prefer: the Disney movie or the original story? Don’t be shy to answer in the comments section down below. We love to hear what you think.

    Loved the original story but wouldn’t mind a happy ending ❤️😜only thing that Disney had to change was the ending. The original story is more empowering for women. Ps no women needs a man to fight her bottle hence Mulan want to war. But it doesn’t mean she can’t fall in love and be loved it’s not a crime, and in the movie am pretty sure she saved the man and the country......... am so sick of hearing that women don’t need a man to save them. Like that the only reason women fall in love with the man is when they get saved by one. Most of the times the women do the saving like for example Mulan saved Shane and fall in love with him because he accepted that women and man can each protect each other and didn’t try to stop her from saving the country but helped and celebrate the fact that she was brave and strong enough to fight for her country. I also really liked the original where the family supported her decision to join the army.🤨😅😅

    You prefer the version where she doesn't fall in love? Oh I'm sorry, I didn't realize that a woman falling in love with a man made her weak and dependable on the man she falls for.
    "She doesn't need a prince to be a princess"
    Did you even watch the damn movie? Her love for him literally had nothing to do with her accomplishments. Those were her and he never took it easy on her. She saved China through her own strengths and the help of her friends. Friends. He wasn't even a love interest in the first movie till the end. She wasn't a hero because of _him_ she was a hero because of her actions.
    I'm sorry but it really pisses me off when people say stupid crap like that. Falling in love or having a partner doesn't make you weak. A strong and independent person can still look for love and remain that strong individual they were before. In fact her falling in love makes her even stronger.
    "No on in her heart and no one in her mind"
    Really? It is basic humanity to fall in love. To look for someone you want to create life with. There is nothing wrong with her falling in love with a man. In fact I would give her credit. She was in the midst of battle but she recognized him, everything about him, and despite that they could easily die, she still wanted to be with him. It takes strength, trust, and compassion to truly fall in love. Something she was easily capable of.
    She didn't _need_ him. She _wanted_ him. She wanted to share a life, adventure, experiences with him. He made her happy and she made him happy.
    If I misunderstand then I'm sorry but this I a big problem I have seen with feminazis.

    Maybe it's my Imaginative nature as a Fiction/Non-Fiction/Romantic Comedy Story Writer. Or my personal feelings about History and Historical Fact... But, I prefer both. The Disney Movie version because of the Awesome imagination behind it. The Real story Because it Depicts Historical Facts about what REALLY Happened. Although Both are great! Note: I only write stories as a hobby and passtime now...

    Okayy there was a lot with a woman going to war in ancient China because it was punishable by death!! That’s why she had to disguise herself as a man until she was so high ranked, it MIGHT be over looked by officials.
    In today’s society we know differently but I truly dislike the agenda the narrative took in this video. If you’re telling history, you need to tell FACTS! Leave your opinions out of it 😒😒

    .... There wasn’t even a love story, and the soldiers only found out she was a girl AFTER the war ended when Mulan went back to her village... Her parents searched for her since she went out alone, but Mulan was said to be far away so she couldn’t hear their shouts. The emperor gave her a camel (as in the poem.) Mulan had brothers and sisters, just no elder brother. NOBODY KNEW HER GENDER ALL ALONG UNTIL THE WAR ENDED AND MULAN WENT BACK HOME...
