Walt Disney Animation Studios | 36. Mulan (1998) | ★★★★★
Favorite characters: Mulan & Chien-Po
Favorite scene: ”I’ll Make a Man Out of You”
I love this movie so much. It’s hard for me to even tell you. I get way too excited about this movie. Mulan is one of my favorite Disney girls. She’s just amazing, flawless, beautiful, and a badass. I think Shang and Mulan are one of the best couples because they got to know each other on an equal plane and still apparently “fell in love.” All the auxiliary characters are perfect, and Mushu has a lot of great one-liners. The music and the animation is beautiful. And it was so hard to choose just one favorite scene. I chose “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” because it’s obviously a classic and it just makes me insanely happy. But I also love the reprise of that song (which everyone seems to forget about), the scene where Mulan starts the avalanche, the scene where Mulan decides to go in her father’s place and cuts off her hair, the scene where everyone bows to Mulan, and so many others. This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite movies of all time, Disney or otherwise.
