Mulan is based on a legend so we don’t know whether the character was real or not. Her story is based on the ancient Chinese legend of Hua Mulan that has been described in the poem “The Ballad of Mulan”. Trained in archery, she is one of the two princesses of Disney that are left handed (the other being Tiana). Her singing voice is that of Lea Salonga. Mulan shows independence, bravery and refuses to be governed by the stereotypical conventions about how a woman should behave. The best princesses should not be judged on their beauty, voice or how they are waiting for their prince. They should rather be judged on the moral values that they display. Mulan is so much that Disney mothers are not!
