A bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers must know what role China carried out in Disney’s live-action remake of “Mulan–” and to what diploma the studio was acutely aware of human rights violations at filming locations.
According to the movie’s credit score, parts of “Mulan” had been filmed in the northwest space of Xinjiang, the place China has detained Uighur Muslims in mass re-education camps.
The backlash in direction of Disney for cooperating with China in the midst of those camps has been rising.
The new lawmakers’ letter urges Disney CEO Bob Chapek to clarify the Chinese authorities’ role in the film’s production, Entertainment Weekly tales.
“Disney’s apparent cooperation with officials of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) who are most responsible for committing atrocities — or for covering up those crimes — is profoundly disturbing,” lawmakers wrote in their letter to Disney.
