Mulan (1998) - full transcript

This retelling of the old Chinese folktale is about the story of a young Chinese maiden who learns that her weakened and lame father is to be called up into the army in order to fight the invading Huns. Knowing that he would never survive the rigours of war in his state, she decides to disguise herself and join in his place. Unknown to her, her ancestors are aware of this and to prevent it, they order a tiny disgraced dragon, Mushu to join her in order to force her to abandon her plan. He agrees, but when he meets Mulan, he learns that she cannot be dissuaded and so decides to help her in the perilous times ahead.



We're under attack! Light the signal !

Light the fire now! Light the signal !

Now all of China knows you're here.


Your Majesty, the Huns have
crossed our northern border.

No one can get through the Great Wall.

Shan-Yu is leading them.

We'll set up defenses
around your palace immediately.

No. Send your troops
to protect my people. Chi Fu.

Yes, Your Highness?

Deliver conscription notices
throughout all the provinces.

Call up reserves
and as many new recruits as possible.

Forgive me, Your Majesty,
but I believe my troops can stop him.

I won't take any chances, General.

A single grain of rice can tip the scale.

One man may be the difference
between victory and defeat.

"Quiet and demure.

"Graceful. Polite.


"Refined. Poised.


Little brother!

Little brother.

There you are.

Who's the smartest doggy in the world?
Come on, smart boy.

Can you help me with my chores today?

Honorable ancestors,

please help Mulan impress
the Matchmaker today.


Please help her.

Father, I brought your. . .

-I brought a spare.


Remember, the doctor said
three cups of tea in the morning. . .

-And three at night.

Mulan, you should already be in town.
We are counting on you. . .

To uphold the family honor.

Don't worry, Father.
I won't let you down.

-Wish me luck.

I'm going to pray some more.

Fa Li, is your daughter here yet?

The Matchmaker
is not a patient woman.

Of all days to be late. . . I should have
prayed to the ancestors for luck.

How lucky can they be? They're dead.

Besides, I've got all the luck we'll need.

This is your chance to prove yourself.

Grandma, no!

Yep, this cricket's a lucky one!

I'm here.

What? But, Mama, I had to. . .

None of your excuses.
Now, let's get you cleaned up.

This is what you give me to work with

Well, honey, l've seen worse

We're gonna turn this sow's ear

lnto a silk purse

It's freezing.

It would have been warm
if you were here on time.

We'll have you washed and dried

Primped and polished
till you glow with pride

Trust my recipe for instant bride

You'll bring honor to us all

-Mulan, what's this?

in case I forget something.

Hold this.
We'll need more luck than I thought.

Wait and see when we're through

Boys will gladly go to war for you

-With good fortune
-And a great hairdo

You'll bring honor to us all

A girl can bring her family

Great honor in one way

By striking a good match

And this could be the day

Men want girls with good taste


Who work fast-paced

-With good breeding
-And a tiny waist

You'll bring honor to us all

We all must serve our Emperor

Who guards us from the Huns

The men by bearing arms

A girl by bearing sons

When we're through you can't fail

Like a lotus blossom soft and pale

How could any fellow say, "No sale"

You'll bring honor to us all

There. You're ready.

Not yet. An apple for serenity.

A pendant for balance.

Beads ofjade

For beauty

You must proudly

Show it

Now add a cricket

Just for Iuck

And even you can't blow it

Ancestors, hear my plea

Help me not to make a fool of me

And to not uproot my family tree

Keep my father standing tall

Scarier than the undertaker

We are meeting our matchmaker

Destiny, guard our girls

And our future as it fast unfurIs

Please look kindly
on these cultured pearls

Each a perfect porcelain doll

-Please bring honor to us
-Please bring honor to us

Please bring honor to us all

"Fa Mulan."

-Speaking without permission.

Who spit in her bean curd?

Too skinny.

Not good for bearing sons.

Recite the final admonition.


Fulfill your duties
calmly and respectfully.

Reflect before you snack. . .

Act! This shall bring you
honor and glory.

This way.

Now, pour the tea.

To please your future in-laws,

you must demonstrate
a sense of dignity

and refinement.

You must also be poised.

-Pardon me.
-And silent!

Could I just take that back?

One moment.

Why, you clumsy. . .

I think it's going well, don't you?

Put it out! Put it out! Put it out!

You are a disgrace!

You may look like a bride,

but you will never
bring your family honor!

Look at me

l will never pass

For a perfect bride

Or a perfect daughter

Can it be

l'm not meant to play this part?

Now I see

That if l were truly to be myself

l would break my family's heart

Who is that girl l see

Staring straight

Back at me?

Why is my reflection

Someone I don't know?

Somehow I cannot hide

Who I am

Though l've tried

When will my reflection show

Who I am inside?

When will my reflection show

Who I am


My, my.

What beautiful blossoms
we have this year.

But, look, this one's late.

But I'll bet that when it blooms,

it will be the most beautiful of all.

What is it?


Stay inside.

Citizens, I bring a proclamation

from the Imperial City.

The Huns have invaded China.

By order of the Emperor,

one man from every family
must serve in the Imperial Army.

The Hsiao family.

The Yi family.

I will serve the Emperor
in my father's place.

-The Fa family.

I am ready to serve the Emperor.

-Father, you can't go.
-Mulan !

Please, sir, my father has already
fought bravely. . .


You would do well
to teach your daughter

to hold her tongue in a man's presence.

Mulan, you dishonor me.

Report tomorrow
to the Wu Zhong camp.

Yes, sir.

The Chu family!

The Wen family!

The Chang family!

-You shouldn't have to go!
-Mulan. . .

There are plenty of young men
to fight for China.

It is an honor to protect my country
and my family.

So, you'll die for honor.

I will die doing what's right.

-But if you. . .
-I know my place!

It is time you learned yours.

Mulan is gone!


It can't be.

Mulan !


You must go after her.
She could be killed.

If I reveal her,

she will be.

Ancestors, hear our prayer.

Watch over Mulan.

Mushu, awaken.

I live!

So tell me what mortal needs
my protection, great ancestor.

-You just say the word and I'm there.
-Mushu. . .

And let me say somethin'.

Anybody who's foolish enough
to threaten our family,

vengeance will be mine!

Mushu !

These are the family guardians.

-They. . .
-Protect the family.

And you, O demoted one?

I ring the gong.

That's right.
Now, wake up the ancestors.

One family reunion comin' right up.

Okay, people, people, look alive.
Let's go. Come on. Get up.

Let's move it. Rise and shine.

Y'all way past the beauty sleep thing,
trust me.

I knew it. I knew it. That Mulan was
a troublemaker from the start!

Don't look at me.
She gets it from your side of the family.

She's just trying to help her father.

But if she's discovered,
Fa Zhou will be forever shamed.

Dishonor will come to the family.
Traditional values will disintegrate.

Not to mention, they'll lose the farm.

My children never caused such trouble.
They all became acupuncturists.

-We can't all be acupuncturists.

Your great-granddaughter
had to be a cross-dresser!

Let a guardian bring her back.

Yes, awaken the most cunning.

No. The swiftest.

-No. Send the wisest.

We must send the most powerful of all.

Okay, okay, I get the drift. I'll go.

Y'all don't think I can do it.
Watch this here.

Jump back. I'm pretty hot, huh?

Don't make me have to singe nobody
to prove no point.

You had your chance
to protect the Fa family.

Your misguidance led
Fa Deng to disaster.

-Yeah, thanks a lot.
-And your point is?

The point is we will be sending
a real dragon to retrieve Mulan.

What. . . What. . . I'm a real dragon !

You are not worthy of this spot.
Now, awaken the Great Stone Dragon.

So you'll get back to me
on the job thing?

Just one chance,
is that too much to ask?

I mean, it's not like it'd kill ya.

Yo, Rocky, wake up!
Ya gotta go fetch Mulan !

Come on, boy! Go get her! Go on !

Come on.




Stony? Man, they're gonna kill me.

Great Stone Dragon,

have you awakened?

Yes, I just woke up.

I'm. . . I'm the Great Stone Dragon.
Good morning.

I will go forth and fetch Mulan.

Did I mention that
I was the Great Stone Dragon?

Go! The fate of the Fa family

rests in your claws.

Don't even worry about it.
I will not lose face.

My elbow!

I know I twisted somethin'.

That's just great. Now what?

I'm doomed,

and all 'cause Miss Man decides
to take her little drag show on the road.

Go get her?
What's the matter with you?

After this Great Stone,
Humpty Dumpty mess,

I'd have to bring her home
with a medal to get back in the temple.

Wait a minute. That's it!

I make Mulan a war hero, and they'll be
begging me to come back to work.

That's the master plan.
You done it now, man.

What makes you think you're comin'?

You're lucky?

Do I look like a sucker to you?

What you mean, a loser?

How 'bout I pop one of your
antennas off, throw it across the yard?

Then who's the loser, me or you?

Imperial scouts.


Nice work, gentlemen.
You found the Hun army.

The Emperor will stop you.

Stop me? He invited me.

By building his wall,
he challenged my strength.

I'm here to play his game.

Go! Tell your Emperor
to send his strongest armies.

I'm ready.

How many men does it take
to deliver a message?


Okay, okay, how about this?

Excuse me.

Where do I sign in?

I see you have a sword. I have one, too.

They're very manly and tough.

I'm working on it!

Who am I fooling?

It's going to take a miracle
to get me into the army.

Did I hear someone ask for a miracle?

Let me hear you say "Aaah"!

-That's close enough.
-A ghost.

Get ready, Mulan.
Your serpentine salvation is at hand !

For I have been sent by your ancestors

to guide you through your masquerade.

Come on. If you're gonna stay,
you're gonna work.

So heed my word ! 'Cause if
the army finds out you're a girl,

the penalty is death !

-Who are you?
-Who am I? Who am I?

I am the guardian of lost souls.

I am the powerful, the pleasurable,

the indestructible Mushu.

Pretty hot, huh?

My ancestors sent
a little lizard to help me?

Dragon, dragon, not lizard.

I don't do that tongue thing.

You're. . .

Intimidating? Awe-inspiring?

-Of course.

I'm travel size for your convenience.

If I was my real size,
your cow here would die of fright.

Down, Bessie. My powers are
beyond your mortal imagination.

For instance, my eyes can see
straight through your armor.

All right, that's it! Dishonor!
Dishonor on your whole family.

Make a note of this. Dishonor on you,
dishonor on your cow. . .

Stop. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

I'm just nervous.
I've never done this before.

Then you're gonna have to trust me.
And don't you slap me no more.

We clear on that? All right.

Let's get this show on the road !

Cri-Kee, get the bags.

Let's move it, Heifer.

Okay, this is it.
Time to show 'em your man walk.

Shoulders back, chest high,
feet apart, head up and strut.

Two, three. . . Break it down.
Hup, two, three. And work it!

-Beautiful, isn't he?
-They're disgusting.

No, they're men.

Now, you gonna have to act
just like them, so pay attention.

Look. This tattoo will protect me
from harm.

I hope you can get your money back.

I don't think I can do this.

It's all attitude.
Be tough, like this guy here.

What are you lookin' at?

Punch him. It's how men say hello.

Yao, you've made a friend.

Good. Now slap him on the behind.
They like that.

I'm gonna hit you so hard,
it'll make your ancestors dizzy.

Yao, relax and chant with me.

Feel better?

Yeah. You ain't worth my time.

-Chicken boy.
-Chicken boy?

Say that to my face, ya limp noodle!

Sorry, Ling.

You're dead !

There he goes!


The Huns have struck here,
here and here.

I will take the main troops
up to the Tung Shao Pass,

and stop Shan-Yu
before he destroys this village.

Excellent strategy, sir.

I do love surprises.

You will stay and train the new recruits.

When Chi Fu believes you're ready,

you will join us, Captain.


This is an enormous
responsibility, General.

Perhaps a soldier
with more experience.

Number one in his class, extensive
knowledge of training techniques,

and impressive military lineage.

I believe Li Shang will do
an excellent job.

I will. I won't let you down.
This is. . . I mean. . .

-Yes, sir.
-Very good, then.

We'll toast China's victory
at the Imperial City.

I'll expect a full report in three weeks.

And I won't leave anything out.

Captain Li Shang.

Leader of China's finest troops.

No. The greatest troops of all time.

Most impressive.

Good luck, Captain !

Good luck, Father.

Day one.


He started it!

I don't need anyone
causing trouble in my camp.


I mean, sorry you had to see that.

But you know how it is
when you get those manly urges

and you just gotta kill somethin',

fix things, cook outdoors. . .

What's your name?

Your commanding officer
just asked you a question.

I've got a name.
And it's a boy's name, too.

-Ling. How 'bout Ling?
-His name is Ling.

I didn't ask for his name.
I asked for yours!

-Try, Chu.

-Gesundheit. I kill myself.


-Then what is it?

-Ping was my best friend growin' up.
-It's Ping.

-Of course, Ping did steal my. . .

Yes, my name is Ping.

Let me see your conscription notice.

-Fa Zhou? The Fa Zhou?
-I didn't know Fa Zhou had a son.

He doesn't talk about me much.

I can see why.
That boy's an absolute lunatic.

Okay, gentlemen,
thanks to your new friend, Ping,

you'll spend tonight
picking up every single grain of rice.

And tomorrow, the real work begins.

You know, we have to work
on your people skills.

All right! Rise and shine,
Sleeping Beauty.

Come on. Hup, hup, hup.

Get your clothes on.

Get ready. Got breakfast for ya.

Look, you get porridge,
and it's happy to see you.

Get outta there!
You gonna make people sick.

-Am I late?
-No time to talk.

Now remember,
it's your first day of training,

so listen to your teacher and no fightin',
play nice with the other kids,

unless one of the other kids
wanna fight,

then you have to kick
the other kid's butt.

But I don't wanna kick
the other kid's butt.

Don't talk with your mouth full.

Now let's see your war face.

I think my bunny slippers
just ran for cover.

Come on ! Scare me, girl.

Yeah, that's my tough-lookin' warrior.

That's what I'm talkin' about.
Now, get out there and make me proud.

-What do you mean the troops just left?
-They what?

Wait! You forgot your sword.

My little baby, off to destroy people.

Order. People, order.

-I'd like a pan-fried noodle.
-Sweet and pungent shrimp.

-Moo goo gai pan.
-That's not funny.

Looks like our new friend
slept in this morning.

Hello, Ping. Are ya hungry?

Yeah, 'cause I owe you
a knuckle sandwich.


You will assemble swiftly
and silently every morning.

Anyone who acts otherwise

will answer to me.

Tough guy.


Thank you for volunteering.
Retrieve the arrow.

I'll get that arrow, pretty boy,

and I'll do it with my shirt on.

One moment.
You seem to be missing something.

This represents discipline,

and this represents strength.

You need both to reach the arrow.

We've got a long way to go.

Let's get down to business

To defeat the Huns

Did they send me daughters

When I asked for sons?

You're the saddest bunch I ever met

But you can bet before we're through

Mister, l'll make a man

Out of you

Tranquil as a forest

But on fire within

Once you find your center

You are sure to win

You're a spineless, pale, pathetic lot

And you haven't got a clue

Somehow I'II make a man

Out of you

l'm never gonna catch my breath

Say goodbye to those who knew me

Boy, was l a fool
in school for cutting gym

This guy's got 'em scared to death

Hope he doesn't see right through me

Now l really wish
that I knew how to swim

-Be a man
-We must be swift as a coursing river

-Be a man
-With all the force of a great typhoon

-Be a man
-With all the strength of a raging fire

Mysterious as the dark side
of the moon

Time is racing toward us

TiII the Huns arrive

Heed my every order

And you might survive

You're unsuited for the rage of war

So pack up, go home, you're through

How couId I make a man

Out of you?

-Be a man
-We must be swift as a coursing river

-Be a man
-With all the force of a great typhoon

-Be a man
-With all the strength of a raging fire

Mysterious as the dark side

Of the moon

-Be a man
-We must be swift as a coursing river

-Be a man
-With all the force of a great typhoon

-Be a man
-With all the strength of a raging fire

Mysterious as the dark side

Of the moon

What do you see?

Black pine, from the high mountains.

White horse hair. Imperial stallions.

Sulfur, from cannons.

This doll came from a village
in the Tung Shao Pass,

where the Imperial Army
is waiting for us.

We can avoid them easily.


The quickest way
to the Emperor is through that pass.

And besides,
the little girl will be missing her doll.

We should return it to her.

No, this is not a good idea.
What if somebody sees you?

Just because I look like a man
doesn't mean I have to smell like one.

So a couple of guys don't rinse out their
socks. Picky, picky, picky.

Myself, I kind of like that
corn chip smell.

Okay, all right. That's enough.

Get out before you get
all pruny and stuff.

Mushu, if you're so worried,
go stand watch.

Yeah, yeah. "Stand watch, Mushu,

"while I blow our secret
with my stupid girlie habits."


Me first! Me first!

We're doomed !

There are a couple of things
I know they're bound to notice!

Ping !

Hi, guys. I didn't know you were here.

I was just washing. So now I'm clean,
and I'm gonna go. Bye-bye.

Come back here.
I know we were jerks to you before,

so let's start over.

Hi. I'm Ling.

-And I'm Chien-Po.
-Hello, Chien-Po.

And I am Yao!

King of the rock!

And there's nothin'
you girls can do about it.

Yeah? I think Ping and I can take you.

I really don't wanna take him anywhere.

Ping, we have to fight!

No, we don't. We could just
close our eyes and swim around.

Come on. Don't be such a. . .

Ouch ! Something bit me!

What a nasty flavor.


Oh, snake! Snake!

Snake! Snake!

Some king of the rock.

Boy, that was close.

No. That was vile.

You owe me big.

I never want to see a naked man again.

Don't look at me.
I ain't bitin' no more butts.

You think your troops
are ready to fight?

They would not last
a minute against the Huns!

-They completed their training.
-Those boys

are no more fit to be soldiers
than you are to be Captain.

Once the General reads my report,

your troops will never see battle.

No, you don't! I've worked too hard
to get Mulan into this war.

This guy's messin' with my plan.

We're not finished !

Be careful, Captain.
The general may be your father,

but I am the Emperor's counsel.

And by the way,
I got that job on my own.

You're dismissed.

I'll hold him and you punch.

Or not.

For what it's worth,
I think you're a great captain.

-I saw that.

You like him, don't you?


Yeah, all right. Yeah, sure.
Go to your tent!

I think it's time we took this war
into our own hands.

Let me see what you got.

"From General Li. Dear son,
we're waiting for Huns at the pass.

"It would mean a lot
if you'd come and back us up."

That's great, except you forgot,
"And since we're out of potpourri,

"perhaps you wouldn't mind
bringing up some."

Hello! This is the army!

Make it sound more urgent!
Know what I'm talkin' about?

That's better. Much better. Let's go.

Khanny, baby. We need a ride.

Insubordinate ruffians!

You men owe me a new pair of slippers!

And I do not squeal like a girl.

Urgent news from the General.

What's the matter? You've never
seen a black and white before?

Who are you?

Excuse me?
I think the question is, who are you?

We're in a war, man !
There's no time for stupid questions!

I should have your hat for that.
Snatch it right off your head.

But I'm feeling gracious today,
so carry on before I report you.

Captain, urgent news from the General !
We're needed at the front.

Pack your bags, Cri-Kee.
We're movin' out.

For a long time
we've been marching off to battle

ln our thundering herd
we feeI a Iot Iike cattIe

Like a pounding beat
our aching feet

Aren't easy to ignore

Think of instead

A girl worth fighting for

That's what I said.

A girl worth fighting for

l want her paler than the moon

With eyes that shine like stars

My girl will marvel at my strength

Adore my battle scars

I couIdn't care Iess what she'II wear
or what she Iooks Iike

lt all depends on what she cooks like

Beef, pork, chicken

Bet the local girls
thought you were quite the charmer

And I'II bet the Iadies
Iove a man in armor

You can guess what
we have missed the most

Since we went off to war

-What do we want?
-A girl worth fighting for

My girl will think l have no faults

That l'm a major find

How 'bout a girl who's got a brain

Who always speaks her mind?

My manly ways and turn of phrase

Are sure to thriII her

He thinks he's such a lady killer

l've a girl back home
who's unlike any other

Yeah, the only girl
who'd Iove him is his mother

But when we come home in victory

They'll line up at the door

-What do we want?
-A girl worth fighting for

-Wish that I had
-A girl worth fighting for

A girl worth fighting...

Search for survivors.

I don't understand.
My father should've been here.

Captain !

The General.

I'm sorry.

The Huns are moving quickly.

We'll make better time to the Imperial
City through the Tung Shao Pass.

We're the only hope
for the Emperor now.

Move out!

What happened?

You just gave away our position !
Now we're. . .

Get out of range!

Save the cannons!

Come on ! Empty it! Empty it!

Sure. Save the horse.


Hold the last cannon.

Prepare to fight.
If we die, we die with honor.

Yao, aim the cannon at Shan-Yu.

Ping ! Come back!

Ping !


All right. You might want
to light that right about now.

Quickly. Quickly!

Come on ! We gotta help!

You missed ! How could you miss?

It was three feet in front of you !

Mulan !



Mulan !

Man, you are one lucky bug.

Shang !

-Do you see them?

Perfect. Now we'll pull them to safety.

Mulan ! I found the lucky cricket!

We need help.

Nice. Very nice. You can sit by me.

We're gonna die!

We're gonna die!
We are definitely gonna die.

No way we survive this.
Death is coming !

I let them slip through my fingers.

Pull !

I knew we could do it. You the man !

Sort of.

Step back, guys. Give him some air.


You are the craziest man I've ever met.

And for that, I owe you my life.

From now on, you have my trust.

Let's hear it for Ping !
The bravest of us all !

You're king of the mountain !

Yes, yes, yes!

Ping ! What's wrong?

He's wounded ! Get help!

Ping, hold on.

Hold on.

I can explain.

So it's true!

Shang !

I knew there was
something wrong with you.

A woman !

Treacherous snake!

My name is Mulan.

I did it to save my father.

-High treason !
-I didn't mean for it to go this far.

Ultimate dishonor!

It was the only way. Please believe me.


Restrain him !

-You know the law.

A life for a life.

My debt is repaid.

-Move out!
-But you can't just. . .

I said, "Move out."

I was this close.

This close to impressin' the ancestors,

gettin' the top shelf, an entourage.

Man. All my fine work.


I should never have left home.

Come on.
You went to save your father's life.

Who knew you'd end up shamin' him
and disgracing your ancestors

and losin' all your friends?

You know, you just gotta. . .
You gotta learn to let these things go.

Maybe I didn't go for my father.

Maybe what I really wanted was
to prove I could do things right,

so when I looked in the mirror,

I'd see someone worthwhile.

But I was wrong.

I see nothing.

Now, that's just 'cause
this needs a little spit, that's all.

Let me shine this up for ya.

I can see you.
Look at you. You look so pretty.

The truth is, we're both frauds.

Your ancestors never sent me.
They don't even like me.

I mean, you risked your life
to help people you love.

I risked your life to help myself.

At least you had good intentions.

What? What do you mean,
"You're not lucky"?

You lied to me?

And what are you, a sheep?

I'll have to face my father
sooner or later.

Let's go home.

Yeah. This ain't gonna be pretty.

But don't you worry, okay?
Things will work out.

We started this thing together,
and that's how we'll finish it.

I promise.

Home is that way.

-I have to do something.
-Did you see those Huns?

They popped out of the snow. . .
Like daisies!

Are we in this together or not?

Let's go kick some Hunny buns!


Make way for the heroes of China.

-Shang !

The Huns are alive! They're in the city!

You don't belong here, Mulan.
Go home.

Shang, I saw them in the mountains.
You have to believe me.

Why should I?

Why else would I come back?

You said you'd trust Ping.
Why is Mulan any different?

Keep your eyes open.
I know they're here.

Now, where are you going?

To find someone who will believe me.

My children, heaven smiles down

upon the Middle Kingdom.

China will sleep safely tonight.

Thanks to our brave warriors.

Sir, the Emperor's in danger.

But the Huns are here.

Please, you have to help.

-No one will listen.
-I'm sorry. Did you say something?

-You're a girl again, remember?

Your Majesty, I present to you
the sword of Shan-Yu.

I know what this means
to you, Captain Li.

Your father would have been
very proud.

-Come on !

They'll never reach the Emperor in time.


I've got an idea.

Be a man

-We must be swift as a coursing river
-Be a man

-With all the force of a great typhoon
-Be a man

With all the strength of a raging fire

Mysterious as the dark side
of the moon

Guard the door.

Your walls and armies have fallen,
and now it's your turn.

Bow to me.

Okay. Any questions?

Does this dress make me look fat?

Who's there?

-Ugly concubines.

He's so cute!

Now, that's what I call
Mongolian barbecue.

Shang, go!

I tire of your arrogance, old man.
Bow to me!

No matter how the wind howls,
the mountain cannot bow to it.

Then you will kneel in pieces!

Chien-Po, get the Emperor!

Sorry, Your Majesty.


Come on !


You !

-You took away my victory!

I did.

The soldier from the mountains.

So what's the plan?

You don't have a plan?

I'm making this up as I go.

-Mushu !
-Way ahead of you, sister.

Come on, Cri-Kee.

-Citizens, I need firepower.
-Who are you?

Your worst nightmare.

-On the roof!

It looks like you're out of ideas.

Not quite.

Ready, Mushu?

I am ready, baby! Light me.

Get off the roof, get off the roof,
get off the roof.

You are a lucky bug.

That was a deliberate attempt
on my life!

Where is she? Now she's done it.

What a mess! Stand aside!

That creature's not worth protecting.

-She's a hero.
-She's a woman.

-She'll never be worth anything.
-Listen, you pompous. . .

That is enough.

Your Majesty, I can explain.

I've heard a great deal
about you, Fa Mulan.

You stole your father's armor,
ran away from home,

impersonated a soldier,

deceived your commanding officer,

dishonored the Chinese army,
destroyed my palace


you have saved us all.

My little baby is all grown up
and savin' China.

You have a tissue?

Chi Fu?

Your Excellency?

See to it that this woman is made
a member of my council.

Member? What?

But. . . There are no
council positions open,

Your Majesty.

Very well. You can have his job.

What? I. . .

With all due respect, Your Excellency,

I think I've been away
from home long enough.

Then take this,

so your family will know
what you have done for me.

And this,

so the world will know
what you have done for China.

Is she allowed to do that?

You. . .

You fight good.

Thank you.

Khan, let's go home.

The flower that blooms in adversity

is the most rare and beautiful of all.


You don't meet a girl like that
every dynasty.

Mulan !

Father, I brought you
the sword of Shan-Yu.

And the crest of the Emperor.

They're gifts to honor the Fa family.

The greatest gift and honor
is having you for a daughter.

I've missed you so.

I've missed you too, Baba.


She brings home a sword.

If you ask me,
she should've brought home a man.

Excuse me. Does Fa Mulan live here?

Thank you.

Sign me up for the next war.

Honorable Fa Zhou, I. . . Mulan !

You forgot your helmet.

Well, actually, it's your helmet, isn't it?

-I mean. . .
-Would you like to stay for dinner?

Would you like to stay forever?

Dinner would be great.

Come on. Who did a good job?

Come on. Tell me. Who did a good job?

All right! You can be a guardian again.

Take it, Cri-Kee!

You know, she gets it
from my side of the family.

Call out for egg rolls!


Thanks, Mushu.

Mushu !
