Being a Chinese, I know too well about the story of Mulan and its true historical background. Frankly speaking, this movie wasn't well accepted in China due to its distortion of the true story. But, this movie brought something new to the Chinese audience, it is interesting to see an Americanized Mulan. In our story, Mulan's identity as a woman kept unknown for 12 years, she had a younger brother who was too young to join the army for their father. Most important, she left home with approval from her family. In old times, the type of leaving home as shown in the movie was condamned. Anyway, Mulan is always someone we admire, so it's nice to see her wearing Japanese costume (the costume design of the movie is kinda disastrous, they reflected Japanese style instead of Chinese ancient clothing style) talking like an American.
