During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.

The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.

CHRIST HOW DID I MISS THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

Best lesson from a Disney movie

This is an underrated movie

This is a grossly underrated movie.

Can I take a minute to rant? Good. Cuz I’m gonna.

I FLOVE this movie. And I HATE all the stupid hatred it gets. For a long time the buzz was “finally a black princess yay!” and now everyone is like “Fuck this movie, first black princess and she spends the whole movie a frog.”

You know what? Fuck that. Because Ariel spent a good majority of the movie not talking. Mulan spent the majority of the move pretending to be a man. Aurora and Snow White? Asleep (Hardly in the movie at all). They’re all just plot devices, not designed to take away from the traits of the women. 

And you know what else? Unlike some of the other princesses, Tiana is in control of her destiny every step of the way. When she turns into the frog does she lose hope and need rescuing? Hell naw. She busts Naveen over the head and gets the job done. She is consistently responsible and capable even after having her dreams crushed and turning into a freaking frog. 

So don’t tell me that Tiana is “less than” just because she gets turned into a frog. She’s still one of the most hardworking, badass, and capable chicks in animated history and I love her like crazy cakes. 

the end. 

Also? She’s based on a real person. A real woman who is 91 and is still cooking in her kitchen. She’s still widely respected in the culinary community, she’s fed presidents, she’s had songs written about her and her restaurants. She’s 91, and she still wakes up every morning to run things, because she still believes in hard work and good food. And if you don’t think that’s truly fantastic, then you can just fuck right off.

Wait a hot second! Tiana is based on Leah Chase??? I’ve eaten at Dooky Chase several times! I’ve met her! I never realized Tiana was based on her!

That’s awesome!

This is what feminists mean when they say that feminism is about gender equality. It’s not really about equality, it’s about paying men back for all the supposed grievances women have suffered at the hands of the “patriarchy”.

Social revenge workers

You… do realize it’s trying to point out the wage gap between men and women, right?

Women make 75 cents to the dollar that men make. And that’s just WHITE women. POC women make even less.

So, yes, it is for equality. So that when men see that price difference, they go “Hey, that’s not equal, that sucks” and women can say “YES, LET ME TELL YOU A THING”

what if this movie took place in, like, modern times? They’d be like, european backpackers who commit petty crimes to stay afloat and then one day they stow away on a cruise but then get thrown overboard when they realize that Cortez is smuggling drugs on board. Then they wash up in Puerto Rico, and meet Chel, who is the daughter of the really rich tycoon known as the Chief who owns the El Dorado line of holiday resorts, and after she figures out that they aren’t rich yuppies on their gap year, in exchange for not telling the police she lets them stay on her dad’s property until he can fly them back home. Then it turns out the chief’s financial attourney Mr. Khan is in league with Cortez and is planning to team up with him to embezzle loads of money and then ditch them all, and then eventually they realize Cortez has somehow followed them there and there’s a bunch of shit that gets thrown down and there’s a standoff with guns and they have to crash a giant lorry filled with cocaine into a police station to get the police to find them red handed and in the end Chel goes with them to Europe and stuff??

d…did I just write a fan fiction? :I holy shit I’ve really been working too hard.

This is brilliant ;__;
