Mulan is one of the most famous animated films made by Disney, who recently released a trailer for the live-action remake. So far, people’s reactions appear to be mixed, partially on the basis there won’t be any songs or talking dragons. A lot of you have asked, how is this trailer received in mainland China? We hit the streets of Beijing to find out.
The opinions expressed in this video are those of individual interviewees alone and do not reflect the views of ASIAN BOSS or the general Chinese population.

I really hate the new movie from what the trailer shows 😭 the best scene was her cutting off her hair with her fathers sword 🗡 and in the live action she still has long hair, not to mention having long hair is bad because a bad guy can grab her hair 😡 the other thing is she doesn’t have her dragon 😭

Mulan 2020 is okay action form Jet Li is amazing. But the first Disney Mulan is innacurate, and that the Mongols took over China and succeeded. And that representation even though the original Mulan legend is FICTION. I still don't like the representation of the Mongolians as bad guys, its war everyone is the bad guy. And they don't look like Mongolians, they just look like stereotypical asian bad guys. BUT THERE IS ALREADY A GOOD MULAN MOVIE FROM 2009 AND IT IS WAY BETTER. Plus im Mongolian.

Mulan Is part of China’s History . I never watched the first one but know for sure to watch this one. I never cared much about cartoons of historical figures of any nationality.They can’t give a full view an then children never know Like the girl said she was use to her riding elephant, she was a warrior to defend her fathers honor . I remember how hard Bruice Lee had it when he tried getting into Hollywood, they just didn’t get it 😡

......I don’t know why people are complaining when they probably don’t know most about Chinese culture themselves. At least they are trying their best, most others wouldn’t even bother to change it. And if their gonna base this off the Ballad of Milan instead of the animated film, then changes will be made. I don’t see why people are mad when they say ‘Make something original’ but then when they do they say ‘Ew no, this is too far away from the old original/This is too MUCH like the original’. Movie hasn’t even come out yet.....if the Sonic movie succeeded then I don’t see why we can’t give this one a chance. AND THIS ISN’T ACTUALLY A FULL REMAKE OF THE ORIGINAL ANIMATED CARTOON MOVIE!! This is based off the BALLED OF MULAN not the animated version, which ISN’T the original by the way. It’s just the version most grew up with. I get why people are mad but-Cmon people. I bet if someone got a color wrong on a Disney character people would easily get mad. It’s happened to me once! I’m open to all this as long as is good! There’s just no pleasing people sometimes.

I felt the same when Aladdin came out. If you guys didn’t know, the main city in the story was actually meant to be called Baghdad (capital city of Iraq). However, due to political issues and and downright injustice and the fact the west doesn’t want to give any credit to our culture and history, the name was changed. All they want is our oil and to wipe our contribution to the world. In fact, historically speaking, modern day Baghdad is the cradle of civilisation. When they released the movie trailer I was so angry. Indian dancing, Indian clothing, American accents, they found the whitest looking Arab to play Jasmine. It was terrible. I’m still angry.

The girl talking about Mulan needing to be less feminine and more robust to fit in with the military...I get where you're coming from because yes she was able to disguise herself for at least 12 years or so in the original story (non Disney). But also at that time there was a huge tension from the invaders attacking and the men weren't paying attention to who was actually joining their ranks they needed numbers and skilled warrior. Hua Mulan was already skilled when she joined, the men's mentality wasn't to rip open their uniforms and show each other's chest hair to prove who was more masculine, their mentality was to train hard to defeat the enemy not to check if the men were growing chesticles. (Chest testicles= breasts)

Mulan is a great representation???What a bunch of bull*hit, so they removed a cartoon dragon, but instead added in a stereotypical Chinese witch with mysterious Chinese magic that can turn herself into a damn bird. "More faithfulto the source material" my ass! Mulan isn't even a hero in the original story, she really was just a nobody who joined the military for her father, yet in the trailer she's doing a bloody backflip like some wuxia. Freaking hell! Ancient China is one of the most militarily advanced nation, with actual artillery, crossbow, even tank-like moving flamethrower! But of course all movies set in China must include the mystical Chinese witchcraft or Kong Fu, right? Because we all know every Chinese soilder are capable of flying through sky or walking on walls like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, *right????????*

Damn..the worst time of all..Personally I dont think this film posters even gonna last in public theatre for a day! They'd better get them bullet proof frame or somthin'! They're all hating on Chinese now these days and Im not even exaggerating guys its for real! I mean not just the Chinese but the whole Asians needs to stay in low profile for a while. We need to be wise in this critical times. Dont go make films like "Crazy Rich Asians" and shxx like that ya know what I mean???? What the fuxx is that??? Really????? Come on the whole world know how the Chinese being so greedy ruthless cheap and problomatic to everywhere they put their foot in..Italy..canada..US..S.Korea..trust me they hate the fuxx outta them! Im not making this shxx up its all on the media twitter an all if u dont believe me go check it out for urself! I do apologize for a decent Chinese people all around the world but yes thats the image of China and its people as of now. So plz dont make any scene untill everything cools down for a little and If I were you guys and including my self as an Asian would not travel any western countries for at least a year or two. I again aplogize for the foul language and in such innopropriate manner of delivering this message.And also sorry about my horrible grammer😣

I like that Mulan is going to a serious drama. When I watched Aladdin's remake, it was almost scene-by-scene, but I felt it was missing a few glims and essences of the cartoon; like seeing Jasmine first, thinking she's beautiful before she got in trouble. I think setting up frame-by-frame, like Lion King, sets it up for problems. I rather have seen Aladdin as an extended 2 hour Bollywood historical drama. Also, have to think about the next two movies; Return of Jafar and the King of Thieves. Therefore, I expect a Mulan 2.

I love Mulan. Not specifically the Disney version, but the concept that a girl would go far enough as to disguise herself as a man and to enter the military for her father. I am not Chinese, but they have such a rich culture. I just hope it's included in the movie, not just the customs we see on the surface.

I just found out about this interview March 2,2020 and was impressed by the people being interviewed and by the interviewer asking really good questions regarding the Disney live action movie Mulan. I really feel for the Chinese people. They are wise, beautiful,seem happy but the CCP I do not like at all. The Chinese people are capable of living happy lives without the CCP and all that awful surveillance they constantly have to endure everywhere they go. Also the corona virus needs to be globally eliminated. All good, innocent people have the right to live out their lives joyously and peacefully. So in conclusion hopefully this live action Disney movie Mulan will represent the Chinese people worldwide very well on screen. Blessings and healing and much love to everyone including the Asian cultures that are hurting during these scary times.

Mulan is rated PG-13, they're obviously going with a more serious type of movie than the animated one, considering that one was rated G. There's not going to be talking dragons and the like because its not supposed to be a comedy movie

As a Western this is awesome to see how native Chinese view American culture and they’re all absolutely right. The director and most of Disney are White Americans who need to highly educate themselves about Chinese culture if they want to gain the respect from China. I also understand they have to balance American values in this movie to appeal to the Western audience which I’m sure is a very challenging balance.

Bruh the girl in the white Champion tee needs to realise that the whole point of Mulan is that she's meant to be this submissive, sophisticated, and stereotypically beautiful girl, but instead, chooses to be rebellious - forced to adopt a masculine facade so she can infiltrate the army; just because she's fighting in a war and is mistaken as a man doesn't mean she can't be "pretty" and "elegant" as well. Mulan is just as beautiful being a brave soldier fighting for her father's honour, as she is being the loving daughter of the esteemed and well-respected Fa Zhou. If the girl in the white Champion tee recognises that "female roles have changed a lot," she should also recognise that the actress playing Mulan doesn't have to fit a specific role, except maybe for the fact that she must be Chinese.

Mulan was a very strong woman who work in the field like man who looked like man, worked like man, fought like man and probably cursed like man. So this is all wrong.

You can tell who is super local and higher educated in China by their use of Cheng Yu(4 words idiom) in almost every line... jesus not even immigrants will remember much of those. Also Liu YiFei came up from the live-adaptation of the chinese final fantasy game, chinese paladin (weird translation name), so naturally she plays more of a fluffy lily flower type as opposed to a strong woman like mulan.

History will not change with a movie, a book, a tv show, this is why America can benefit of watching movies that have basis in historical background but make it an exceptional story. Historians have written many versions of history over the ages, some falsified, some truth, no one knows for sure which is the actual one since we weren't there...for a culture that prides itself on long history, China being one of many, sometimes a movie is just a movie....its not trying to change history, so chill...watch it for entertainment, or stick to one-sided perspective books.

Some notes on the translation: 3:32 The girl said Mulan should look more "中性化," i.e. androgynous, not "plain." 4:40 She said "Chinese culture deserves to be appreciated." Personally, I find fighting with loose hair too fake. But it's Disney...so...

Besides, it keeps you from seeing things that could potentially kill you as well as someone could come up behind you and grab your hair and drag you somewhere or whatever. Long hair in battles isn't practical.

My favorite version was 2013 Legend of Hua Mulan, I watched over and over. We in America want the truth of a story, not Disney 's washed over version. She came from a military family, trained early, has talent before joining the army, Disney showed none of this and besides, they got her name wrong, Hua, is the name.

I'm American and I know Disney had their pick at it making the family friendly version of it but I think the love action Disney is doing is stupid. Americans don't know when to stop. Mulan: Rise of a Warrior is only and true live action of the story and the only closest thing to the real story. Disney will ruin it and Hollywood always ruins stuff with with all the remakes they make.
