May this film be a lesson to future studios; I hope it is successful in its endeavors.
Yeah, also, fat China-bux won't hurt anyone, right?
Especially when its coming to super-hyper-progressive Hollywood, because, they don't care about principles, when it comes to origin of money, right?

Well, at least something good had happened because of SJW or "even idiots can be useful...once in a year".

I disagree with that. All the actors should be Asian.

Does that include voice-actors in animated work?

He is Asian? He's Sri Lankan? (Even with being raised partly in Australia)

Liu Yifei, the star of the film, is expressing her support for the Hong Kong Police. This is certainly not good for the PR folks at Disney, but let's not forget that they had controversial people like Sarah Silverman, Pauly Shore and Gilbert Gottfried voice characters in their animated films.

Apparently, a #SupportMulan movement is currently developing/expanding in China.

Disgusting.

I will cease any further support for the film.

Empire sat down with producer Jason Reed and he talked about the approach they decided to take when it came to making this movie.
