We love our Disney treats. With the live-action Mulan soon to hit theaters, this Mulan Rice Krispie Treat is inspired by Mulan’s dragon sidekick and ancestor from the original animated Disney Mulan. These dragon rice krispie treats should satisfy the emptiness you’re feeling after you realize that Mushu is intentionally not included in the live-action remake of Mulan. “Dishonor on you. Dishonor on your cow!”
While the humorous sidekick Mushu may be missed, it’s also important to understand the director Niki Caro is trying to make this live-action version a more serious interpretation of the true story about a young woman who pretended to be a man while taking the place of her injured father in the war against the Huns during the age of Imperial China.
So if you really need your fill of Mushu, make these Mushu Rice Krispie Treats inspired by the animated Mulan and enjoy them while watching the animated version while you wait for the live-action version to release March 27, 2020.

About Disney’s Mulan
Acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro brings the epic tale of China’s legendary warrior to life in Disney’s Mulan, in which a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father. Mulan features a celebrated international cast that includes: Yifei Liu as Mulan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang and Jet Li as the Emperor. The film is directed by Niki Caro from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Lauren Hynek & Elizabeth Martin suggested by the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.”
