Book Review - Mulan Live Action Novelization

Mulan Live Action Novelization

About the Book
A thrilling novelization that will take readers back inside the world of the upcoming Walt Disney Studios' live action Mulan film to relive the adventures with their favorite characters, old and new.

My Take on the Book
This was a great adaptation of the upcoming Mulan movie! If you were not excited to see the movie before reading this I think you will be once you do.

While many have seen the animated Mulan, I know I, for one, am excited to see the new live-action film. This book sets out the plot, characters and more as it allows you to visualize the world Mulan lives in and the circumstances that Mulan finds herself in that makes her take the action she does to bring honor to her family and her country.

The author does a great job of capturing the story but also uses humor, as well as action to draw the reader in and hold them from beginning to end. One thing that is different in the new live-action movie is that Mushu is not in this film. However, there is a bird that seems to represent the family's Phoenix and there is an interesting interplay in Mulan's mind that seems to get at the relationship between Mushu and Mulan in the first film.

Overall, this is a novelization that tells a story of the upcoming movie and for both my girls and I after reading this, we were definitely more excited to see the upcoming film!
