Whereas they’re not concerned within the new Mulan remake, Bancroft is happy that the 2020 model isn’t a carbon copy of the unique, and loves that above all, it exhibits a lady who desires to convey honor to her household and shield her father.
A little bit of a coincidence
The software program that the animators used to create the unimaginable avalanche that Mulan introduced down, killing just below 4,000 Hun warriors, and leaving solely 6 survivors, was known as Atilla. Feels like a coincidence? Properly, sure and no. Though Atilla the Hun was the ruler of the Huns for almost 10 years, Shan Yu isn’t primarily based on him! Attila’s many armies didn’t invade the Northern Wei territory, so Shan Yu’s military is most definitely primarily based on the Xiongnu Nomads who fought rather a lot with the Han dynasty in China in the course of the third century onwards
Girls are fairly badass
The movie makes us imagine that it’s an enormous shock for a lady to be a warrior, however really, Hun armies usually had girls amongst them. Perhaps that’s why Shan Yu doesn’t appear all that shocked when he finds out Mulan is a lady on the finish of the movie.
