Have you watched the new Live Action Mulan Yet?
Mulan has arrived on Disney+ just in time for my birthday! Maybe someone will purchase it for me for my birthday… Haha! You can check out my trailer reaction for the new movie HERE. Starting September 4, with Premier Access, you can watch “Mulan” before it’s available to all Disney+ subscribers. Disney+ will offer Premier Access to “Mulan” for $29.99 on disneyplus.com. Once you have Premier Access to “Mulan,” you can watch as many times as you want on any platform where Disney+ is available.
But I am here to talk about the music…
Which Disney songs have you memorized? For me, there are two songs from Disney movies I can sing fully by heart. The first is A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes and the second one is Reflection from Mulan. When Mulan first released in 1998 I was a teenager and the song Reflection hit home for me. (I felt it was speaking to me, and to this day it brings tears to my eyes when I sing it or hear it.)
Now that Disney is releasing a new live-action Mulan they have released another version of Reflection and they brought back Christina Aguilera to sing it. While the original song will always be my favorite I am continually amazed and awed by Christina, and I feel no different about the new song. You can check out the new music video below as well as the new music video for “Loyal Brave True”.
About the song and the music video
Multi-platinum and global award-winning superstar singer/songwriter Christina Aguilera performs the newly-recorded “Reflection” in the music video directed by “Mulan” feature director Niki Caro (“The Zookeeper’s Wife,” “McFarland, USA”). You can check out the music video for Reflection below!
“Reflection (2020)” is produced by “Mulan” composer Harry Gregson-Williams. The original 1998 classic was written by David Zippel and Matthew Wilder.
Music from “Reflection” and the new original song “Loyal Brave True” are featured in Gregson-Williams’ underscore with Aguilera’s full-length versions appearing in the film’s custom main-on-end title design. Both songs are featured in the movie and on the Walt Disney Records soundtrack, with score composed and conducted by Gregson-Williams. Here is the music video for Loyal Brave True.
Acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro brings the epic tale of China’s legendary warrior to life in Disney’s “Mulan,” in which a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.
