PHOTOS: Costumes and Props Used in New "Mulan" Movie on Display at Disney's Hollywood Studios

For a limited time only, costumes and props from Disney’s “Mulan” (which debuted today on Disney+ with Premier Access) will be on display at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. These costumes are truly a work of art and are just one example of the incredible production design behind this new film.


Filmmakers drew their inspirations for the design from a number of Chinese dynasties, including many elements from the Tang dynasty, which ruled China from 618 to 907. Colors, texture, and shapes all play key parts in the story and look of the film.


In total 40 people worked on the costumes over three months. Between three and five costumes were made for the 50 main actors, with over 1,000 costumes made in total. Fabrics were custom dyed and accented with hand embroidery and stitching adding to the authenticity.

For Mulan, played by Yifei Liu, Weta Workshop in New Zealand produced several types of armor, including beauty hero armor, made from different fabrics and different structures that were appropriate for different uses. Red was chosen as an iconic color representing both fire and joy in China. And engraved along the base of a sword belonging to Mulan’s father are the Chinese characters signifying “Loyal Brave True.”


Be sure to stop by and see both the Mulan and Xianniang costumes up close while on display along with an exclusive Sneak Peek at Walt Disney Presents and don’t miss “Mulan” streaming exclusively on Disney+ with Premier Access.
