When Mu Lan dresses up as a boy to take her father’s place in the army, she has lots to learn and lots to prove, but her biggest battle might be with her confidence. This new telling of an ancient Chinese legend mixes traditional Chinese theatrical techniques with contemporary music for a brand-new take on a classic story of girl power.

Approximate run time 120 minutes.

Recommended for ages 5+
