Mulan, Disney's 36th animated feature, was released in theaters on June 19, 1998. After that, on February 2, 1999, the VHS was released, then the DVD on November 9, 1999.

A few months after its Limited Issue release, Mulan was re-released on DVD as a Gold Classic Collection title on February 1, 2000. It was discontinued on January 31, 2002, and online sales lasted until 2003.


Honored with legions of critical acclaim, Disney's 36th animated masterpiece magically transforms an ancient Chinese legend into unparalleled fun and adventure that comes along but once every dynasty! Embraced for her lovable, spirited nature, Mulan is a young girl who doesn't quite fit into her tradition-bound society. When the invading Hun army comes charging over China's Great Wall, Mulan's aging father is ordered to battle! To spare him from harm, Mulan disguises herself as a soldier with a comical, ragtag troop, led by the courageous Captain Shang. Never far away are Mulan's hilarious guardian dragon, Mushu, and lucky cricket, Cri-Kee. But Mulan will need more than razor-sharp wit to defeat the ruthless Hun leader, Shan-Yu. Only by staying true to herself will she bring victory to her country and honor to her family!
