When will this insanity end?! Mulan had been tracking to become Disney’s biggest live-action remake to date, but not even this fearless Chinese maiden could overcome the Coronavirus. And to make things worse, as of publishing, Disney’s Marvel Studios has cancelled their other female-led action film Black Widow, which was scheduled to release in April. It’s a sad day.

We do not recommend putting on a disguise and heading out in public during this battle erm… pandemic. Instead we’ve collected some movies like Mulan streaming on Netflix right now. Before anyone jumps my case, we selected these movies based on varying themes in Disney’s classic, like heroic bravery and/or overcoming adversity. For the record, we do not believe anything here will live up to the excitement (basically) everyone was expecting Mulan to provide. Enjoy!
