WHAT we vividly remember in the 1998 Disney animated film Mulan is the heartfelt interpretation of its theme song by Lea Salonga titled Reflection. Fast forward to 2020.
Mulan is now a live action flick produced with a budget of $200 M and the cast includes Jet li, Gong Li, Jason Scott Lee and Liu Yifei playing the title role.
Chosen to sing the movie theme is Moira Dela Torre. By some coincidence. Reflection is the very first song Moira learned to sing. She sang it during a church event. Mulan is a movie she grew up with. We recognize the talent of Moira as a songwriter first and secondly as a singer. However, we believe nothing can beat the original. No less than Chinese-American actress Yifei loved the version of Lea.
