The Wild Orchid: A Retelling of "The Ballad of Mulan" - Cameron Dokey, Mahlon F. Craft 2.5 stars. About what I expected, really, based on my memories of the Once Upon a Time series. But I hoped for more, because "The Ballad of Mulan" is such a fantastic story. Hilariously, I think the Disney version was probably more realistic in regards to everyone's reaction to Mulan's rejection of traditional gender roles. Oh well.
