Mulan (1998) – The Movie Robcast

The Robs originally planned for the first episode in April to be Disney’s live-action remake of Mulan. But, with that being another Coronavirus-related postponed movie, they thought why not go back to the 1998 version? Particularly as Rob D had not actually seen that one, despite always planning to. As a wise franchise one said, life finds a way…

So, with Disney+ handily launching the week of record, Rob Daniel & Rob Wallis took a look at the 1998 Mulan. This then turned into an epic discussion of the film, the Disney Renaissance of the 1990s, Disney’s classic movies (specifically Lady and the Tramp), the success (or not) of the “live action” remakes, racial sensitivity and the wonders of Chinese action cinema. 

You’d never guess the Robs are stuck inside, would you? One of them even watched Mulan II…

They also give initial thoughts on Disney+ and there is even space for their thoughts on ITV’s decision to show Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion.
