Mulan Li Shang S Removal Was Influenced By Metoo
Several characters from disney's 1998 animated film mulan won't appear in the upcoming live action remake, including mulan's initial love interest, captain li shang. recently, it was revealed that the #metoo movement influenced the decision to remove the character from the remake. #mulan producer says removing li shang from the film was influenced by the #metoo movement — 'having a commanding officer that is also the sexual love interest was very uncomfortable and we didn’t think it was appropriate' (via @collider | t.co wo52wqucvt) pic.twitter no72eryoyw — fandom (@getfandom) february 27, 2020. Some speculated that the filmmakers were trying to downplay the homoerotic undertones of the relationship between shang and the disguised mulan. in reality, the filmmakers claimed that they were influenced by the #metoo movement, finding it inappropriate for mulan's love interest to be her commanding officer. The latest case in point arrived last week following producer jason reed’s claims that the animated version’s li shang character had been removed from the remake in the wake of the #metoo movement. in the 1998 disney film, li shang is mulan’s love interest and commander. he’s also something of an animated bisexual icon. Honghui, unlike shang, is also mulan's fellow soldier, not her superior officer, which plays into the decision to remove shang from the film. "i think particularly in the time of the #metoo movement, having a commanding officer that is also the sexual love interest was very uncomfortable" producer jason reed says in an interview with collider.
