Fact of the Day: Mulan Sadness

The origin tale for Mulan ends on a very happy and noble note for the female hero in China. However a very notable later version had her returning home to a father who had long since died. She also is summoned to be a lover of the Khan. Instead she commits suicide.

My kids just recently saw the Disney movie! It's one of my faves. That's sad if the latter story is true though:(

I've heard this version before and it was so sad. :( Mulan is my favorite Disney princess actually.
