Augh is my Gourmet Pet
Wiki is my Book and Play Collections Pet
FM is my CD and DVD Pet
Magiu is my Magazine and Newspaper pet
Xu is my Battle and Musical Instruments pet.

If you need to battle these or any of my other pets, I'm happy to lend, but most of my pets have stats so they can be somewhat expensive.

I actually haven't seen the live action remake yet, so this comment is based more around reviews and my observations from the original movie than from seeing it myself.

I can't really speak to how well either the original or the remake represent Chinese culture, but it sounds to me that Mulan herself has gone from an identifiable character with flaws and a clear character arc to a strong woman that starts out strong and doesn't really grow over the course of the film.

In the first two minutes Mulan appeared on screen in the original, you could identify her character traits: She's a normal girl. There's nothing particularly special special or gifted about her, making her easy for the audience to identify and say "That could be me." She has flaws. She's lazy in that she didn't get up to do her chores, but she has ingenuity. She comes up with a contraption to make her dog do her work for her.


These remakes have honestly only made me realize just how strong some of these old characters are, going back much further. It's easy to poke fun at a character like Snow White
