Imagine: Futuristic crumbling society, where large portions of countries have flooded due to melting glaciers. Those in the flooded areas live in treehouse villages connected by zip lines and bridges. There are ‘sky bridges’ constructed over ravines, canyons and large rivers. Ropes are hung off flat surfaces for people to scale up and down. Everyone wears a climbing harness, and they are like fashion pieces and identification. Different regions have specific harnesses that they wear.
Have a bright, outgoing, charismatic female who is terrified of heights but covers it up so no one knows. Because no one is scared of heights. Who befriends an adventurous, but quiet, girl who doesn’t bat an eyelash at heights and teaches her friend how to climb.
During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.
The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.
CHRIST HOW DID I MISS THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
Under the Dog anime project directed by Masahiro Ando (Sword of the Stranger, Blast of Tempest, CANAAN)
"Under the Dog takes place in 2025 in Neo Tokyo, five years after a devastating terrorist attack at the Tokyo Olympics. In the wake of the tragedy, the U.N. formed a covert ops unit dedicating to seeking out, then eliminating those responsible for the attack. Anthea Kallenberg, a girl of Swedish descent is a member of this elite group who has honed her combat abilities and has become a deadly assassin, but must come to terms as to who she really is."
