I'm under the impression that Mulan for this live-action version doesn't get that type of character growth because she's being portrayed as the perfect, strong independent woman....which would make her a boring character and a bit Mary Sue-ish. For the original, we were rooting for her to pull through and after that reveal, we rooted for her to get out of her situation. Is there any validity to this?I still don't get why they would want to do The Little Mermaid. It's so unnecessary. Peter Pan & Wendy...I can give a slight pass to. Live-action Peter Pan films have been a thing for years, haven't they? It also seems like it would be easy to do.
That's the woke 2010s for ya. Women can't be portrayed as having flaws, they can't struggle, we're not allowed to see how they start off weak or as losers until they overcome whatever they need to overcome to become the hero of the story. No, in today's media women must be shown as bolder, faster, stronger and superior to men in every way since the opening act.

Men get the hero's journey. Women get to be perfect from the first line of dialogue.
