I will be the first to say that I am not a fan of Disney’s on-going campaign of live-action adaptations of their golden era hits.

I’m Asian American.

Doesn’t that mean I’m technically obligated to watch and support this movie that retells a traditional Asian legend with an entire cast of Asian people on screen?

I shouldn’t need to count my blessings that there’s one big Hollywood production featuring a cast with more than one Asian actor.

The Washington Post called “Mulan” “Disney’s most problematic movie since “Song of the South”, which glorified life on a plantation in painfully racist terms”.
