Mulan (1998)
This is definitely one of the more interesting Disney "princesses" (though Mulan isn't a princess, nor is she considered one of the six traditional ones) - a female character who, like Jasmine and Ariel before her, doesn't just sit around and wait for things to happen to her. Mulan loves her family and is willing to do anything to protect them. Of course, this being Disney, she happens to get help for a talking dragon, a lucky cricket, and an attractive man along the way. The animation is beautiful and very colorful, especially in the end sequence in the Forbidden City. It's also interesting to note that this is based on a Chinese legend that has roots in a true story, as opposed to a fairy tale that has no basis of truth whatsoever.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
