What immediately drew me in was that Mulan didn’t look, or seem like a Disney movie. Gone are the musical elements, the comedy or any endearing sidekicks. Instead, we are treated to lush visuals, a hearty protagonist, a gorgeous historic Chinese setting and a feeling of epicness.
The poster boasts shiny colours, wonderful armour and interesting technology vibes. For that alone, I’m excited. However, it’s important to place the visual elements in a wider context. In this blog article, I will attempt to understand the poster and my concerns for the upcoming movie.
