Corrected entry: When Mulan cut her hair with the sword, by the way she cut it, the hair would have ended up with the end on a slant.

Correction: Mulan cut her hair in small parts, not all in one go, so there wouldn't really be a visible slant.

Corrected entry: As the Captain is about to enter the medical tent to see 'Ping' a flag is noticeable on the side. It is Japan's flag, not China's.

Correction: At the time when this movie takes place, that was NOT Japan's flag. Japan's flag at this time was a red circle with red sun-like rays coming from it. Besides, even if that wasn't how it was, you can see that the red circle on the tent is not on a rectangular white field, like your average flag is, but on a white, square-shaped field that is standing on one corner, like a diamond.

Corrected entry: When Mulan is being made over to go to the Matchmaker, her grandmother gives her beads of jade. At first she wears the beads over her clothes, but in the next shot they're tucked in. (00:08:05)

Correction: She is seen tucking the beads into her shirt when the scene changes before the umbrella twirl.

Other mistake: When Crickie is typing the letter for Mushu he has ink on his feet yet when he jumps on the table to wipe off his feet there aren't any ink footprints where his foot was.

Question: Why does the general really appoint Li Shang as the new captain?

Answer: For the reasons stated. He believes him to be a highly competent soldier and trainer. While this opinion is probably influenced by Li Shang being his son, it does prove to be correct, as Li Shang's training is what allows the small group to succeed in battling the Huns.
