“Let’s Get Down to Business”: A Handbook of Heroic Transformation in MulanHeroic Transformation: How Heroes Change Themselves and the World (2019)
Walt Disney’s Mulan (1998) tells the heroic story of Fa Mulan, whose unique character is both female and Asian. Mulan, who is kind hearted, brave, and easy to relate to, has since become an international hero that continues to inspire an appreciation for and to highlight Asian culture in the media. The story is based on the legend of Hua Mulan, which was originally told as a poem known as the Ballad of Mulan. Since the legend has been passed down from as far back as the sixth century, thousands of people have recognized Hua Mulan as a hero. Today, Disney’s Mulan inspires us, especially young women and girls, to awaken the heroic qualities that lie within ourselves.
