There have been many tales of the great warrior, Mulan.
But, ancestors, this one is mine.
Here she is.
A young shoot, all green...
unaware of the blade.
If you had such a daughter...
her chi, the boundless energy of life itself...
speaking through her every motion...
could you tell her that only a son could wield chi?
女子运气 则可能蒙羞 受辱甚至被流放吗
That a daughter would risk shame, dishonor, exile?
Ancestors, I could not.
That's the last one.
Mulan! Forget the chicken!
It will come back!
Tell me your sister is not the cause of this.
Take control of yourself!
Mulan! Listen very carefully.
Mulan, what happened when you fell off the roof?
It was like you were a bird.
There's a spider crawling in your hair.
You know I'm afraid of spiders.
This is not one of your tricks, is it, Mulan?
Don't worry, if you hold very still...
I will squash it.
It is because I'm trying to protect Mulan
that I say this.
Mulan is young.
She is still learning how to control herself.
You make excuses for her.
你忘了 木兰是女儿 不是儿子
You forget, Mulan is a daughter, not a son.
A daughter brings honor through marriage.
Any man would be fortunate to marry either of our daughters.
I ask you, what man will want to marry a girl
who flits around rooftops, chasing chickens?
Xiu gives me no trouble.
The matchmaker will find a good husband for her.
It is Mulan I worry about.
They'll call her a witch.
It's time you talked to her.
Do you know why the phoenix
sits at the entrance of our shrine?
She is the emissary for our ancestors.
But I broke her.
Some say the phoenix is consumed by flame...
and emerges again.
I think she can survive a broken wing.
Your chi is strong, Mulan.
But chi is for warriors...
Soon, you'll be a young woman...
and it is time for you...
to hide your gift away.
To silence its voice.
I say this to protect you.
That is my job.
Your job is to bring honor to the family.
Do you think you can do that?
- Rourans? - It can't be.
Close the gates!
Take out the leader!
He's way too strong!
You. You'll do.
six of our northern garrisons along the Silk Road...
have fallen in a coordinated attack.
All trade has been disrupted.
If we allow this to continue,
it could be the end of the kingdom.
And my citizens?
This soldier is the only survivor.
I fear more attacks will follow.
Who is responsible?
Rourans, Your Majesty.
Their leader calls himself Böri Khan.
I killed Böri Khan.
It is his son.
He has united the tribes
and resurrected the Rouran army.
If I may, Your Imperial Majesty.
You may speak.
Böri Khan fights alongside a woman.
Her chi is beyond imagining.
There is no place for witches in this kingdom.
It is forbidden to use the power of chi in destructive ways.
And yet, it is her skill
that leads the Rouran army to victory.
She has trained an elite force of shadow warriors
to assist Böri Khan.
We're not afraid of dark magic.
We'll destroy this Rouran army and their witch.
Here's my decree.
We'll build a mighty army.
Every family will supply one man.
We'll protect our beloved people...
and crush these murderers.
Deploy the Imperial Army.
The dynasty will not be threatened.
So, you have news.
The emperor sends his army
to defend the Silk Road.
We will crush every garrison
until the Imperial Army is on its knees.
the Imperial City will be laid bare.
The emperor will be mine to kill.
You have proved useful, witch.
I could tear you to pieces before you blink.
But you won't.
Remember what you want...
a place where your powers will not be vilified.
A place where you are accepted for who you are.
You won't get what you want without me.
When I found you on a desert steppe wandering alone...
you were exiled.
A scorned dog.
When I sit on the throne, that dog will have a home.
