Synopsis by Mark Deming
The Legend Of Mulan is not to be confused with the Disney feature based on the same story, though it's also a feature-length animated film and is based on the same story. Mulan is a young woman who is the daughter of a famous warrior. When war breaks out in China following a massive drought, Mulan disguises herself as a man and goes into battle in place of her aging father. Mulan is captured by enemy forces and taken prisoner; she manages to escape only to have to face the forces of nature along with a variety of human enemies.
