Disney’s Mulan misadventure

Disney’s summer blockbuster is becoming a horror show, said Christopher Palmeri at Bloomberg. What was “supposed to be another $1 billion” megahit, the live-action remake of 1998’s hugely popular animated film Mulan, is “proving to be a political hot potato.” The controversy began more than a year ago, when the movie’s leading actress, Liu Yifei, “voiced her support for the mainland Chinese government during Hong Kong pro-democracy protests.” Complaints that Disney was catering to China’s Communist Party gained steam when viewers who paid $30 to stream the film noticed “special thanks” in the closing credits to Chinese government entities in Xinjiang.
