“Don’t panic. There’s a spider crawling in your hair. Don’t worry, if you hold very still… I will squash it. But I broke her.” — Hua Mulan

“Black Wind and I rode alongside two rabbits running side by side. I think one was a male, one was a female. But you know, you can’t really tell when they’re running that fast. When I go riding tomorrow, I will try to find them again. Maybe they’ll still be there. Yes. It is best. I will bring honor to us all.” — Hua Mulan

“I’m starving. The fiercest winter storm could not destroy this makeup. Xiu, look at my face. What am I feeling? Exactly. This is my sad face. This is my curious face. And now I’m confused.” — Hua Mulan

“No, Madam Matchmaker. Thank you. Yes, I understand. But I think the teapot should remain where it is. But how can you fight? It’s beautiful. I wish I was as brave as you. But, father… if I were your son, you wouldn’t have to. ‘Loyal, brave, and true.'” — Hua Mulan

“Our last apple. You need it more than I do. We should be there by now. do you think we are lost? Insult me again, and you’ll taste the tip of my blade. Or what? Yes, Commander. Hua Jun, Commander. It belongs to my father, Hua Zhou. Showers? Me! I mean, I volunteer, sir.” — Hua Mulan

“I agree. My ideal woman is courageous. Yes. And she has a sense of humor. She’s also smart. That’s not the point. No. I mean, yes. I was. Almost. Didn’t work out. Just talk to her like you are talking to me now. She will. I mean, I think she will, you know? You never know with women.” — Hua Mulan

“You. You’ll do.”

“The emperor senda his army to defend the Silk Road. Not witch. Warrior. I could tear you to pieces before you blink. We will finish what we started.”


Emperor,, Mulan, Disney+, Walt Disney Pictures, Jason T. Reed Productions, Good Fear Content, China Film Group Corporation, Jet Li

Emperor

“And my citizens? Who is responsible? I killed Böri Khan. You may speak. We’re not afraid of dark magic. We’ll destroy this Rouran army and their witch. Here’s my decree. We’ll build a mighty army. Every family will supply one man. We’ll protect our beloved people… and crush these murderers. Deploy the Imperial Army. The dynasty will not be threatened.”

Böri Khan

“So, you have news. Good. We will crush every garrison until the imperial army is on its knees. And then… the Imperial City will be laid bare. The Emperor will be mine to kill. You have proved useful, witch. But you won’t. Remember what you want… a place where your powers will not be villified. A place where you are accepted for who you are. You won’t get what you want without me. When I found you on a desert steppe wandering alone… you were exiled. A scorned dog. When I sit on the throne, that dog will have a home. And you will see to it that nothing and no one stands in my way.”

Hua Zhou

“There have been many tales of the great warrior, Mulan. But, ancestors, this one is mine. A young shoot, all green… unaware of the blade. If you had such a daughter… her chi, the boundless energy of life itself… speaking through her every motion… could you tell her that only a son could wield chi? That a daughter would risk shame, dishonor, exile? Ancestors, I could not.”

“This way. That’s the last one. Mulan! Forget the chicken! Mulan is young. She is still learning how to control herself. Any man would be fortunate to marry either of our daughters. Including Mulan.”

“Do you know why the phoenix sits at the entrance of our shrine? She is the emissary of our ancestors. Some say the phoenix is consumed by flame… and emerges again. I think she can survive a broken wing. Your chi is strong, Mulan. But chi is for warriors… not daughters. Soon, you’ll be a young woman… and it is time for you… to hide your gift away. To silence its voice. I say this to protect you. That is my job. Your job is to bring honor to the family. Do you think you can do that?”

“Yes, Mulan, it is decided. Come and sit down. It is what is best for our family. I’m truly blessed to be in the presence of such enchanting women. I have no doubt today will be a momentous day for the Hua…”

“I am Hua Zhou. I served the Imperial Army in the last battle against the Northern Invaders. I am blessed with two daughters. I will fight. No.”

“Are you suggesting… our family not comply with the Imperial edict? I am the father. It is my place to bring honor to our family on the battlefield. You are the daughter! Learn your place. Beautiful tool… for terrible work. The phoenix. You remember? She has followed me into battle before, and she will follow me now. And she will tell our ancestors I’ve been loyal… brave, and true. There is no courage without fear. You must be courageous, Mulan. For your mother and your sister. For me. It is my duty to fight. My honor to sacrifice for the emperor. I would change nothing about my life. We should all get some rest. I’m leaving in the morning.”

“My sword. My armor! It’s gone! The conscription scroll. It was Mulan. If I expose her lie, our own people will kill her. Ancestors, honored phoenix… ancestral guardian, I beseech you… watch over my daughter, Mulan. She has made a terrible mistake. I taught her too late to know her place. I indulged her. She is innocent of the world. Of men. And the evils of war. And now she’s in great danger. Please, honored phoenix… protect her.”

“There were men gathering from all over the kingdom. An alien and savage tribe to her. To hide amongst them, she knew she must become one of them.”

Hua Li

“Tell me your sister if not the cause of this. Mulan! Take control of yourself! Mulan! Listen very carefully. It is because I’m trying to protect Mulan that I say this. You make excuses for her. You forget, Mulan is a daughter, not a son. A daughter brings honor through marriage. I ask you, what man will want to marry a girl who flits around rooftops chasing chickens? Xiu gives me no trouble. The matchmaker will find a good husband for her. It is Mulan I worry about. They’ll call her a witch. It’s time you talked to her.”

“We have excellent news. The matchmaker has found you an auspicious match. Never mind that. We must be on time. I already told you, you cannot eat. No. You will only humiliate him further.”

“You’re a war hero. You’ve already made many great sacrifices. We must be strong. This time, he will not return.”

“Who would do such a thing? You must stop her. The Northern Invaders will kill her.”


Hua Xiu, Mulan, Disney+, Walt Disney Pictures, Jason T. Reed Productions, Good Fear Content, China Film Group Corporation, Xana Tang

Hua Xiu

“Mulan, what happened when you fell off the roof? It’s like you were a bird. You know I’m afraid of spiders. This is not one of your tricks, is it, Mulan?”

“I have no idea.”

Chancellor, Mulan, Disney+, Walt Disney Pictures, Jason T. Reed Productions, Good Fear Content, China Film Group Corporation, Nelson Lee

Chancellor

“Your Majesty… six of our northern garrisons along the Silk Road… have fallen in a coordinated attack. All trade has been disrupted. If we allow this to continue, it could be the end of the kingdom. Slaughtered. This soldier is the only survivor. I fear more attacks will follow. Rourans, Your Majesty. Their leader calls himself Böri Khan. It is his son. He has united the tribes and resurrected the Rouran army. It is forbidden to use the power of chi in destructive ways.”

Madame Matchmaker

“Quiet. Composed. Graceful. Elegant. Poised. Polite. These are the qualities… we see in a good wife. These are the qualities… we see in Mulan. When a wife serves her husband… …she must be silent. She must be… invisible. She must be… is something wrong? It’s ideal for the teapot… to remain in the center of the table. Move the teapot. Girl! Dishonor to the Hua family. They have failed to raise a good daughter.”

Imperial Empire Guard 1

“Rourans? It can’t be.”

Imperial Empire Guard 2

“Close the gates! Take out the leader! He’s way too strong!”

Imperial Empire Guard 3

“If I may, your imperial majesty. Böri Khan fights alongside a woman. Her chi is beyond imagining. There is no place for witches in this kingdom. And yet, it is her skill that leads the Rouran army to victory. She has trained an elite force of shadow warriors to assist Böri Khan.”

Village Magistrate

“Citizens! Citizens, we are under attack from Northern Invaders. Our land is at war. By edict of His Imperial Majesty, the Son of Heaven… every family must contribute one man to fight. One man from every house. Wáng family. Chin family. Dú family. Hua family. Have you no son old enough to fight? Liu family. Wei family.”

Imperial Guard 4

“Are you all right? Can I help you?”

Cricket

“I’m Cricket. My mother says I was born under an auspicious moon. That is why my mother says I’m a good luck charm. Ling is a romantic! I like kissing women with cherry red lips. Well, what does she look like?”

Honghui

“Need a hand, little man? Lower your sword. Yes, Commander. Tell us, Hua Jun. What’s your ideal woman? That’s not you, Yao. That’s definitely not you.”

“Hua Jun. Don’t let them bother you. Especially that donkey Yao. Are you matched? Can I ask? Lucky you. I mean, how do we even begin to know how to talk to a woman… let alone be married to one? Yeah, I wish it was that easy. What if she doesn’t like me? You should really consider skipping guard duty and taking a shower. You stink, my friend.”

Commander Tung, Mulan, Disney+, Walt Disney Pictures, Jason T. Reed Productions, Good Fear Content, China Film Group Corporation, Donnie Yen

Commander Tung

“I’m your commanding officer. Fighting will not be tolerated. Am I clear? With your voice, soldier. What is your name? Is this your family sword? Fall in line.”

Ling

“Yao, give it back! It’s not funny! Give that back! We were matched 28 days ago. Her name is Li Li. Her skin is white as milk. Her fingers like the tender white roots of a green onion. Her eyes are like morning dewdrops…”

Yao

“Sorry, Ling! Po, catch! I like my women buxom. With strong, wide hips. Courageous, funny, smart. Hua Jun’s not describing a woman… he’s describing me.”

Po

“I don’t care what she looks like. I care what she cooks like. A courageous woman? Smart? Not you. Not you.”

Sergeant Qiang

“I told you to line up for showers. Showers. You lot stink. And I need a volunteer for night guard duty. Desertion. Penalty, death. Bring women into camp or consorting with women in any way. Penalty, death. Dishonesty. Penalty… expulsion, disgrace. Disgrace for you, disgrace for your family… disgrace for your village, disgrace for your country. We’re going to make men out of every single one of you. Fire. Only the strongest will reach the summit. It will take everything you have. Straighten out those arms. Keep them up. Shoulder level. Keep your mind strong. Don’t stop. Is he crying? Fire! Fire! Longwei! Report to the barracks immediately. Immediately. Dishonesty. Penalty, expulsion. Disgrace.”

Longwei

“Ow. Ow.”
