Cast: Voices of Ming-Na Wen, B.D. Wong, Eddie Murphy
When the Huns invade China, Mulan dresses as a male soldier to take her sick father's place in the army. She has an easier time wielding the family sword than pleasing the local matchmaker. Unlike other Disney heroines, Mulan shows more grit than glamour, especially when her true face is revealed.
What Parents Like: Woo hoo! Donnie Osmond is the singing voice of the hunky Captain Shang.
What Kids Like: Mulan is one of the most enduring figures in Chinese lore. Yes, she falls in love, but her transformation from devoted daughter to skilled fighter is much more inspiring. In the end, she is victorious in battle -- and gets the cute guy!
