Don't expect to see Mulan in a pretty 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?" [SOURCE]

Girl, you look ready to fall over...

Out of sheer boredom I decided to search for articles, essays or rants on the lack of depiction of POC in Once Upon a Time and Disney with the recent news of Mulan. Not a whole lot beyond one tumblr blogger showed up, a few tumblr tags for "disney rant" or "disney rage" and what not, but that's about it. I did happen to notice that this also showed up in the result though:

However, I don't know if this because of my own frequented search result past or because I just used really searchable keywords and employed them as a username for a community :D. Either way, I'm tickled pink.

I suppose I don't have to plug, but feministdisney and arsmarginal are two exceptional blogs you should at least take a gander at once if you want a dissection or examination of popular media.
