Historian: I watched 'Mulan' so you don't have to (opinion)

  Historian: I watched 'Mulan' so you don't have to (opinion) Kelly Hammond, a historian of China and East Asia, explains why she found Disney's live-action film 'Mulan' to be a 'boring, drab and inaccurate mess.'With the new live-action version of "Mulan," Disney missed the mark with viewers in China and the United States. How did they mess this up so badly? There are numerous controversies surrounding the film's release, but most of them do not even have to do with the fact that the movie itself is a boring, drab and inaccurate mess. Although the story is well known around the world, the live-action movie is slow, repetitive, and lacking in any substantial character development.

Cook spoke to PEOPLE before the big night, explaining why he wanted to put such a huge event on as people around the world still struggled with the novel coronavirus pandemic.

And when I didn't see that was happening, when I started seeing the films that I was anticipating most move out of the summertime spot, I thought, man, wouldn't it be great if somehow, someway we could still create a version of that moment? And I think we have the chance to do that, which is so damn cool."
