These are almost minute-by-minute, analytical questions for the movie. Your students can do these questions during the movie, after the movie, or even for homework. Personally, I would pause the movie every couple of minutes and to let your student get caught up with the questions. But, these questions can be versatile and used in many different ways in the movie.

Some Samples Include:
Shang tells Mulan that she has his trust, how long do you think that trust will last?
Yao tells Mulan that she is the king of the mountain, why is that a compliment from him?
Why do they call Mulan a deceiver, a snake, and other foul names before letting her explain herself? What does that say about their perceptions of her crime?
Shang seems to feel betrayed at first, not angry. Do you think Chi-Fu caused him to get angry at Mulan?
Mulan’s three friends, Yao, Chein-Po, and Ling, try to stop them from killing Mulan. Why don’t they care she’s a woman and Shang does?
Mushu tears up when he gives Mulan advice about letting go. Do you think that’s advice he’s given himself before? Why or why not?
Mulan seems to have just had a major self-discovery about how she didn’t really go to war for her father but for herself. How is having realized this valuable, and how will this influence the rest of the movie?
Mulan says she now just sees nothing in the mirror. How does that correspond to her earlier wish to just see her true self in the mirror?
Mushu tries to cheer Mulan up, but when that fails he instead admits to her his wrongdoings. Hearing this Mulan cheers up. Why would it do that?
Mulan still proceeds to go and warn her fellow soldiers, even when they betrayed her. Then when they don’t listen she insisted she had to find people who would. What does that say about her?
Now that Mulan is a girl again she is shocked no one will listen to her. What does that say about how different the treatment of boys and girls are in Ancient China?
Mulan’s friends still go with her idea to dress up as girls, even after she revealed to them she was not whom they thought. What does that say about Mulan’s ideas, her friend’s willingness to help others, and their trust in her?
In the background, they play a reprise of “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” as Yao, Chein-Po, and Ling dress up as women. Is that ironic, why or why not?
What is the symbolism that Yao, Chein-Po, Ling, Mulan, and Shang climbing up a wooden beam to get in the palace?
