She uses courage and determination to win the day.” Although Mulan is a member of the Disney Princess franchise, she is not a legitimate princess in the traditional sense, as she was neither born the daughter of a king or queen, nor does she become princess consort by marrying a prince.
Why does Mulan count as a princess?
While Mulan isn’t born a princess or married to a prince, she does demonstrate heroic behavior with all she does for her country. So Disney allows her to be a Princess by their definition of the Princess Mythology.
How old is Li Shang in Mulan?
He looks about 23 at the beginning (when he first came out becoming captain). I know some time progresses, and then more before the time they actually marry. Considering some women at this time would marry men 20 years older than them or more at times, he’s age appropriate for Mulan.
