Mulan Mulan


Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Mushu with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Mulan

Mushu is a miniature Chinese dragon and a former guardian of the Fa family. He was demoted to scrub monkey duties after his comic relief antics cost the life of Fa Deng. After breaking the statue of (and thus killing) the guardian that was intended to help Mulan as she takes her father's place in the army, Mushu takes on the duty himself and tags along with Mulan while hoping to become a guardian again.

Tough choice.

Eddie Murphy was the original and, for his first voice acting role, he brought all the same energy, humour and life to the character he is known for. However, unlike Donkey, he only voiced Mushu for one movie and thus didn't get to expand further which is a shame.

Mark Moseley does a great job filling in as he always does. In some ways I think he helps add more to Mushu's character, more than he does for Donkey anyway. However he lacks the pizazz Eddie had and can be a bit bland at times.

I'll give it to Eddie.

1. Eddie Murphy- He is Mushu. Everything about his voice is perfect for the character.
2. Mark Moseley- He does a really good impressions, but he lacks Eddie's energy needed for Mushu.

I think both actors did an awesome job but I like Eddie better since his performance was better at capturing Mushu's energy and zaniness. Nonetheless, Mark is a greatt substitute.

Eddie obviously wins. He pretty much IS Mushu. However, I give Mark credit for doing a really good impression of him.

HONORABLE MENTION: They considered having David Hyde Pierce voice Mushu at one point. I'm curious as to how that would've turned out.

BONUS OPTION: I wonder what the odds are of Dean Edwards or Jason J. Lewis voicing Mushu at some point are...

They both sound rather similar but I'll go with Eddie since Mark Moseley voiced him in that crappy sequel and not the original film

@HienFan Moseley did Mushu's singing voice in the original film though.

@murali9395 Regardless Eddie had better material in general(though Mark sounded pretty spot on)

Eddie Murphy, no question about it. Mark Moseley is more annoying than funny, especially since he's a white dude trying to sound black. Why couldn't they have gotten Dean Edwards to fill in as Mushu?

@Galactic_Cyrus Probably because Dean only started doing voice over work in 2010?

@PacoSlimee If only they'd found him sooner!

Eddie 100% though Mark does an average impression & pretty much everything 2 do with Mulan since the 1st film.

Both are good and Mark did an awesome impression, but Eddie Murphie will always be known as Mushu to me.

Mark Moseley does a good job at trying to sound like Eddie but he isn't.
