When I was a kid, I absolutely loved the Disney story of Mulan -- hello? A chick who kicked butt and di more than just try on a glass slipper or take a long nap? Sold! It was my mother who told me the traditional story of Mulan, and I was blown away by how much more epic it was.
The traditional story covers about 12 years of Mulan's life in disguise, filled with unrequited love, violence, drama and heartbreak. Apparently, my mom's version was the classic and popular version known throughout Asia. And frankly, it sounds better!
