fake movies: post-canon, post-apocalyptic fix-it for annie
"An asteroid hit the Earth and that’s canon, no question about it. But what you didn’t know is that the Study Group survived the blast by hiding in The Eleven Herbs & Space Experience van (convenient, but good convenient, like ‘Indiana Jones’ fridge in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’ convenient) and then remade themselves in the post apocalyptic wasteland, turning Greendale into a safe haven where everyone dresses like the extras in Mad Max. Still a comedy at its core but darker and edgier, kinda like a gritty Nolan version of the original. It may be reminiscent of The Day After Tomorrow, but it’s actually more like Zombieland without the zombies or Bill Murray, who couldn’t be reached to play a part in this production.” - Excerpt from the journal of Abed Nadir, Co Founder of the Independent Greendale Republic, to be added to the audio commentary of the movie he is planning on shooting once Hollywood is rebuilt.
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
