6. An Equally Misfit Dragon Assists Her, But Only In The Movie
Mulan is enough of a misfit as it is. She can’t even pour a cup of tea! In the movie, her ancestors awaken and send a dragon to help her on her journeys. They meant to send her the Great Stone Dragon, but unbeknownst to them, a misfit named Mushu journeys to her aid.
Mushu is looking to restore his own name. Like Mulan, he is a bit of a klutz and caused some catastrophic incidents in the Fa family. Suffice it to say that in the original version of Mulan, no dragon accompanies her.
