The 2020 remake of Disney’s Mulan has sparked outrage after viewers spotted something horribly disturbing in the end credits.

Keep on reading to learn about the controversy…

And now, people are demanding for the movie to be boycotted after they watched the “disturbing” end credits.

The flick follows Mulan as she disguises herself as a man to take the place of her father in the Chinese military.

The casting process for the role of Mulan in the upcoming reboot was said to be pretty competitive.

In October, Disney unveiled who would be taking on the iconic roles.

The actress and singer, who recently starred alongside Emile Hirsch in The Chinese Widow, is taking on the leading role in the live-action adaptation.

Back in 2018, The Hollywood reporter announced that Li would be joining the cast as the emperor, although, reportedly the star initially turned down the role in the film but later agreed to it after his daughter told him that he should be in a movie promoting Chinese culture.

Best known for the Ip Man franchise and his role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we’ll be seeing Yen grace our screens as the brand new character, Commander Tung, who wasn’t in the original 1998 movie.

The main villain in the original animated film was Shan Yu, the leader of the Huns, but the live-action adaptation is set to feature another villain – a powerful witch.
Li has starred in several acclaimed movies, including Farewell My Concubine and Memoirs of a Geisha.

The live-action version of the heroine’s love interest doesn’t go by the same name, in fact, in the original, he was called Li Shang. New Zealand actor, Yoson An will play Honghui, who, according to The Hollywood Reporter, will be an “ambitious recruit” who joins Tung’s unit.

Known for his role in Arrival, the actor is starring as Zhou, a war veteran who’s called back to the military. Of course, we know his daughter, Mulan, takes his place, but we’re excited to see how Ma portrays the character.

The long anticipating wait finally came to an end on the 4th of September when Mulan was released on Disney+.

But immediately, the movie didn’t sit well with a lot of fans.

The post read “I support the Hong Kong police. You can all attack me now. What a shame for Hong Kong.”

It is claimed that “Disney kowtows to Beijing.”

Just last month William Barr claimed that Disney and other Hollywood studios “bow to Beijing”.

By censoring films and by tweaking scripts and character nationalities the companies ensure distribution will happen in China.

The revenue of a movie being released there can be substantial. In fact, according to cultural analyst Xueting Christine Ni, “Chinese takings can make or break a movie”… Which explains why they want the movie to be a hit there.

The end credits have been leaving viewers feeling very disturbed.

Disney “specifically thank[ed] the publicity department of CPC Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region Committee in the credits. You know, the place where the cultural genocide is happening.”

As the Washington Post and the New York Times also noted, the thank-yous extend to government organizations, including the police bureau for Turpan, a city in Xinjiang.

The Chinese government has reportedly been detaining over a million Uighurs, a predominately Muslim people, and other minorities in at least 85 camps across the Xinjiang region, according to PBS NewsHour.

And hundreds of thousands of Muslims have been suffering endlessly at the hands of the Chinese government.

In September 2017, Mulan’s director, Niki Caro, posted an Instagram of a sand dune in a location she geotagged as Urumqi, the capital city of Xinjiang. People have since noted their frustration in the comments to the image, urging people to #BoycottMulan; the hashtag has also gained traction on Twitter.

And do you feel it was appropriate for the movie to be filmed in this part of China?
