PatriotResource.com Review: Mulan II is a straight-to-video sequel to Mulan. As a result, Eddie Murphy is replaced by another voice actor who does his best to imitate Murphy. Otherwise, the voice cast is still filled with Asian actors, perhaps even moreso than the original film. Unfortunately, they don't have as much to work with. In Mulan II, Mulan is now well-known and admired by young girls. She's and Shang are a full-blown couple and become engaged. This time around, Mulan has to escort the Emperor's daughters who are to be used to form an alliance with the Mongols by way of arranged marriages. On top of that Mushu is out to break up Mulan and Shang so that he can continue to be Mulan's guardian dragon. Though it has an ambitious set of storylines, like most straight-to-video efforts, it falls short. It more than satifies younger viewers and those who just can't get enough of the familiar characters of the first film. The DVD also includes about twenty minutes worth of extras along with "Mushu's Guess Who" Activity. The deleted scenes show there was some effort put into refining the storylines. The other special features are largely forgetable.
