Disney's Mulan Animated Storybook successfully brings impressive Disney graphics and lively sound effects from the big screen to the computer. The title is not deceiving, but Mulan breaks with the model of earlier Disney Animated StoryBooks (like Lion King, 101 Damations, Pocahantas, Winnie the Pooh, Toy Story, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame), and increases the number of clickable activities while reducing the amount of storybook reading.
Mulan and Mushu, her humorous dragon-friend (with voice provided by Eddie Murphy), take the user through an ancient China setting to gather magic scrolls which reveal Mulan's story of honor. Clicking key words in the scrolls displays alternative words, like a thesaurus, or illustrates the word with an animated graphic. As each scroll is read and collected, the story unfolds and is augmented with various games and activities. Our young testers felt that the storybook was better understood after viewing Mulan, the film.
