As per reports, Disney has based a lot of expectations from the Chinese market with Mulan's release. Disney has crafted a film that will predominantly please the Chinese audience as it is based on Chinese folklore. The Mulan remake has made many significant changes from the original 1998 animated film, which was reportedly considered as insulting by the Chinese audience. The remake will not feature the mythological talking dragon Mushu that provided comic relief throughout the original film. Other plot points that might be offensive to the Chinese audience will not be included in the live-action remake of Mulan.
