Some new themes had been advised by the addition of Gong Li’s Xian Lang, a witch who, as a girl with sturdy qi, is much like Mulan, and thus understands her greater than others. However, character arcs for each characters really feel extremely truncated. Xian Lang suggests to Mulan that the one option to absolutely embrace her energy is to disclose her true self, and within the subsequent scene, that is what occurs. Mulan means that Xian Lang shouldn’t be inherently evil, and in virtually the following second, the witch finds some measure of redemption. These moments aren’t allowed to construct into something actually satisfying, largely due to all the pieces else the film wanted to slot in.
