    Just like Crazy Rich Asians, the movies made by Americans for Americans, reflecting their shallow research on Chinese culture and piled up simple and crude symbols, are just a pawn in the tide of Hollywood feminism—this is also commonplace— —What’s really surprising is that Disney put the commercial attributes so much that they didn’t even bother to create characters, and put Hua Mulan in the position of a tool man. Does Dad attach importance to the Chinese market or not? Coupled with the cut of the aria, there is no memory point. I will probably remember that there is such a version next time when the Disneyland fireworks show Mulan melody plays.
