It was bad enough that Disney’s new live-action film adaptation of Mulan is costing Disney+ subscribers an extra $35 on top of their monthly fee… but it’s run into a much bigger dumpster fire of controversy.

The 5-second wrap of what’s going on is this:

Disney partly shot the $274 million remake of the animated film in Xinjiang alongside the Turpan Municipal Bureau of Public Security.

Problem is, this security bureau runs ‘re-education camps’ where up to 1 million minorities have reportedly been detained as part of a push to make China a single identity, including religion.

Further, a couple of Chinese Communist Party authorities were given “special thanks” in Mulan’s credits.

Yep, it’s a lot.

This aside, is the film actually any good?
