Many Disney fans have expressed extreme dismay and have threatened to boycott Disney Plus over the filming of ‘Mulan’ in China; and Disney now have a response!
In the film’s credits is a thank you to authorities from Xinjiang, a place sanctioned in the United States! In Xinjiang many Uighur Muslims have been imprisoned and mistreated for absolutely no reason apart form being Uighur Muslims. Now Republication senator Josh Hawley, 40, has sent a letter to Disney condemning the corporation for “whitewashing the ongoing genocide of Uighurs and other Muslim ethnic minorities during the production of Mulan.”
In response to the letter, Disney CFO Christine McCarthy says: “Let me just put something into context. The real facts are that Mulan was primarily shot — almost in entirety — in New Zealand. In an effort to accurately depict some of the unique landscape and geography of the country of China for this period drama, we filmed scenery in 20 different locations in China.” She added that the credits to Xinjiang at the end of the film are because it’s common “to acknowledge in a film’s credits the national and local governments that allowed you to film there. So, in our credits, it recognized both China and locations in New Zealand. I would just leave it at that, but it has generated a lot of issues for us…” Let us know: ARE YOU BOYCOTTING DISNEY PLUS BECAUSE OF MULAN? IS MULAN SERIOUSLY THE WORST MOVIE YOU’VE EVER WATCHED???
