Still shot from the movie: Mulan II.

Mulan II

Lacking in the polish and perfection of the original movie (especially where storyline is concerned), Mulan II picks up the tale of the woman warrior (voiced by Ming-Na) as the now retired soldier accepts a marriage proposal from Shang (voiced by B.D. Wong) and a dangerous mission from the Emperor (voiced by Pat Morita). Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Situational ethics is a term used to describe the idea of applying moral laws (such as duty and honor) in different ways, depending upon the situation. How is Mulan’s statement “my duty is to my heart” an example of this type of rationalization? What moral laws does this perspective allow the characters to overlook? Do you think they were right or wrong in their decision process? Do you think people living in China between 500-600AD (the time setting of this story) would have reasoned the way the characters do in this movie? To what century do these considerations belong?

Mulan’s parents try to teach their daughter about yin and yang, a Chinese philosophy about the existence of opposites in all things. How do they hope this understanding will improve her chances of a happy marriage? Learn more about this philosophy.
