As part of the Hong Kong diaspora and a huge fan of the original Mulan film, I know that I can’t separate the pro-state violence stance of the film’s stars from its release on Disney+ today.
I’m not a fan of the live-action Disney remakes. In fact, I’ve barely watched any of them. But that’s to do with personal preference and I’ve never had a fundamental issue with any of them. When it comes to Mulan, however, like many others, I’ll be deliberately boycotting it. Honestly, I urge you all to boycott it. If not for yourself, for the millions in Hong Kong currently fighting for freedom.
