MEET ONCE UPON A TIME’S MULAN
Don’t expect to see Mulan in her geisha getup when we first meet Disney’s warrior princess in Once Upon a Time’s September 30 premiere. She’ll be armored up and battle-ready.
“I go on a journey with Prince Phillip to find his princess, Aurora,” teases Mulan’s portrayer, Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch). “There’s this evil spirit that’s moving and my character ends up bonding with Sleeping Beauty. And as you’ve heard, Captain Hook is joining us.”
So might sword overpower hook? “Definitely,” says Chung, who mastered her sword-wielding skills on ABC Family’s Samurai Girl. “If you compare the size and length of my sword to his hook, who do you think has the longer reach?”
MULAN. IS. NOT. JAPANESE.
STOP SAYING GEISHA WHEN YOU REFER TO HER.
SHE WAS A NORTHERN WEI DYNASTY WARRIOR WHO LIVED SOMEWHERE BETWEEN AD 386-534.
THE TRADITION OF JAPANESE GEISHA’S DID NOT FULLY EMERGE UNTIL THE 18TH CENTURY.
And it’s not even the fans.
William Keck did this on twitter too, and he was called out, and got all defensive and never apologized. And now he’s just continued being a racist fuck in his article on TVGuide.
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST.
Not all Asian countries are interchangeable.
You better hope Chinese people in China never hear you call their cultural hero Japanese.
They real sensitive about that kind of thing, what with the Rape of Nanking and all.
I blame that clown outfit Disney put Mulan in for this geisha nonsense.
