All The Ways Disney’s Live-Action ‘Mulan’ Is Different From The Animated Movie | Pop Culture Decoded

From Insider.

Disney’s live-action reimagining of "Mulan," directed by Niki Caro and starring Yifei Liu, made many changes to characters and story from the 1998 animated classic. Instead of Shan Yu, Mulan faces off against Böri Khan and a new shape-shifting villain named Xianniang. Meanwhile, Mulan’s anthropomorphic sidekicks Mushu and Cri-Kee are replaced with two new characters in the live-action film. Other characters, like Li Shang, were split up into two separate characters. And while classic songs from "I’ll Make a Man Out of You" are absent here, there are still references to them throughout. Many of the changes help bring Mulan closer to the ancient Chinese poem "The Ballad of Mulan."
