    So many things... A literary and fantastical epic, riddled with earnest humanity, tinged by genuine consequences, and undaunted by the weight of its sprawling universe.Β The fact that this masterpiece lay dormant and dusty on the lowest shelf of the Disney catalogue will always wreck me. Perhaps we were just too young when we first saw it and let it sink unawares into the background noise of new-millennium CG adventures, turned over every two years by a newer, more expensive diversion…

    Being an immigrant, this is one of my favorite immigrant films. Fueled by a dream, and rescued by the kindness nurtured in others. The world can learn a lot from this bear. Especially today.

    It might make you feel uncomfortable, it might take you to strange new places, it might make you sad and it might make your life much, much harder. But if good people are willing to fight for what is right, things can always get better. Don’t give up. Your voice matters. Use it.

    Love,
    🐻

    Still laughed so hard I cried but def more a greatest-hits montage of the gags that made the first two a little funner than this one. The two dozen A-list cameos were honestly pretty incredible tho πŸ˜‚

    Can you imagine living in that gorgeous, sprawling apartment, and still having to do laundry in the basement?!

    Ok seriously this movie freaked me the eff out. That scrabble scene had me hiding under the blanket just waiting for the letters to spell SATANΒ SIXSIXSIX πŸ™ˆ

    Mulan (1998): girls can do anything boys can do.

    Mulan (2020): girls are superhuman witches.

    Working on this last year was a lot of fun. Watching it was work.
