  • But even though Disney's Mulan trailer shows her family living in one, that likely didn't happen.

  • Wow!

  • Hi, Hello.

  • Hey, Alice, are you This is Alice majorly.

  • She's an illustrator and writer.

  • After the trailer from Mulan came out last June, Alice noticed some inconsistencies and wrote a piece about the films.

  • Inaccurate use of Chinese elements.

  • It's like just one more thing in a long history in like America, where Westerners have felt like they could tell Asian stories better than actual Asian people on, they could just pick and choose things that they think are cool from their culture.

  • and not even respected enough to understand it.

  • Disney's Mulan is based on a Chinese epic poem called The Ballad of Mulan.

  • That story took place in the fifth century, around 700 years before the first Hello was even built.

  • It's like if you tried to dio a Robin Hood movie like set 700 years later, so the original was like in 1300 so would be set like today, and instead of being in England, it would be in Spain.

  • So just the fact that they chose to set it in the to low at the time, it would change Mulan's race, her country and like her era.

  • One thing that happens in cultural appropriation is that, you know, people just pick things up because they look cool and they don't care about the history behind it.

  • So that's what I'm thinking.

  • My It's very likely that happened.

  • So even though the Tullow probably doesn't belong in the Moulin movie, it has a rich history in its own right and tells the story of a resilient minority surviving together as one big family.

This is Mulan's home.
