Special Features
Special features include four deleted scenes: Battle Sequence, Mei Flirts, The Escape Part 1, and The Escape Part 2; "Music & More," a three-minute video entitled "(I Wanna Be) Like Other Girls;" Games & Activities: Mushu's Guess Who, a cute "guess the shadow game;" "Backstage Disney," which includes "The World Of Mulan," a three-choice passport to either the world of Yin and Yang, the culture of Mulan's world, or China's exotic food. After getting all your stamps in your passport, Mushu brings you a special surprise. The second part to "The World Of Mulan" is "Voices Of Mulan" an introduction to the voice talents and their characters in action. Disney's fast play is a nice feature that gives you the option of watching sneak peeks or skipping them by pushing play to get to the main menu.

  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In the direct-to-video sequel to the original "Mulan," we find General Shang riding up on his horse to ask "Mulan II" marry him. The Emperor calls on the happy couple to escort his three daughters to Qui Gong, so they may forge an alliance with the enemy to stop the Mongols from attacking and destroying them. The General consents to the mission, but Mulan doesn't agree with the idea of arranged marriages and is sure to let Shang know how she feels. Meanwhile, Mushu the dragon and Cri-Kee the cricket have gone along for the ride, and Mushu is anxious to add fuel to the fire having decided that with Shang in Mulan's life there will be no place for him.
