    . "Mulan", animated movie, is Disney's 36th full length animated feature which chronicles the legend of a young Chinese woman who sneaks into the army to save her father and her country. Mushu is sent by her ancestors to force her to abandon her plans. However, the feisty, fire breathing, wannabe, guardian dragon is so taken with her determination that he decides to support Mulan as she brings victory to her country and honor to her family. 

    "Mulan" was five years in the making and cost more than $100 million. It takes 10 minutes just to roll the credits for the nearly 700 people who worked on the film. Disney is expected to spend $30 million or more to market the movie domestically, compared with an estimated $60 million for "Hercules."  Most partnership advertising with other companies will not kick in until two days before its release. But don't worry, the Disney Stores will have tons of merchandise and the parks will do a parade. There are six main characters in the movie but you will probably see more of Mulan on the poster ads followed by perhaps her wisecracking dragon sidekick Mushu. 

    Box office revenue for previous Disney animated films: 

    $751 mil Lion King 1994 
    $342 mil Pocahontas 1995 
    $320 mil Hunchback of Notre Dame 1996 
    $250 mil Hercules 1997
