The best Mulan quotes reflect the deep meaning within the story. You get to decide which ones are the most significant. This live-action remake of the Disney animated classic has fewer funny lines than the original version did, because it's a more mature telling of the story. Nevertheless, there are plenty of substantive one liners that tie in nicely to the film's themes.
Yifei Liu plays the title character, a young woman skilled in combat who is advised by her father Zhou (Tzi Ma) to hide her gifts and adhere to traditional gender roles. When the Emperor (Jet Li) demands that one male from every family join the Imperial Army, Mulan poses as a boy so that Zhou, who has no sons, won't have to fight. The journey pits her against the evil Bori Khan (Jason Scott Lee), who is working in conjunction with a witch named Xianniang (Gong Li). The story tracks what happens as Mulan grows to embrace her strengths as a woman and not let anyone else define her.
Mulan was directed by Niki Caro, whose previous films include Whale Rider and North Country. The screenplay was written by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Elizabeth Martin, and Lauren Hynek.
