When Moniwang passed away in 1941, his successor, Sihanouk, not only brought the smiling Angkor kingdom out of the framework of French Indochina, but also ushered in a more paradoxical and ever-changing 20th century. Disney's live-action "Mulan", which was released after several twists and turns, has caused widespread controversy. In Hong Kong and Taiwan (and even Thailand), some people believe that Liu Yifei, the protagonist of Mulan, had launched a "BoycottMulan" (#BoycottMulan) movement by retweeting Weibo "supporting the Hong Kong police" during the extradition bill storm last year.
Zhou Ting, a Hong Kong social activist who photo color correction services was arrested and prosecuted not long ago for violating the National Security Law, is known as "Real Mulan", while "Mulan" is said to be "Fake Mulan". In China, some nationalists believe that the American company Disney is not worthy of Chinese dramas, and they are also dissatisfied with Liu Yifei's identity as a Chinese-American. In the United States, the latest reason for the boycott is that the crew of "Mulan" went to Xinjiang to film, and received support from the government of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in China. ” and other Xinjiang government departments.
The move, which has been accused of being technically unnecessary (as there are many other places where similar landscapes can be photographed), helped Chinese propaganda and implied support for China's Uyghur policies. "It's not that I don't understand, it's that the world is changing too fast." In 2017, when Disney invested heavily in preparing for the filming of "Mulan", I would never have imagined that in just a few short years, the entire world would undergo such an earth-shaking change. Disney's ideal is nothing more than to make a movie that targets the Chinese market while also taking into account American tastes, and can make a lot of money in both markets.
