The Secret of Mulan is the 1998 entry in the series of Secret films released direct to video by UAV/Sterling Entertainment, which generally was an adaptation of a popular theatrical animated film released in a given year, such as The Secret of Anastasia and The Secret of the Hunchback. This film, written by Katherine Lawrence and Christy Marx, is based on the poem about Hua Mulan, which had been made as a film by Walt Disney Pictures the same year as Mulan, and combined with elements from another popular 1998 animated film, A Bug's Life. The film is notable as an early example of the work of the composer-lyricist team of Megan Cavallari and David Goldsmith (lyricist), and some copies were released with a CD soundtrack attached to the back cover.


The film features an anthropomorphic caterpillar named Mulan who takes her father's place in war against Mala-Khan using the pseudonym "Hua" (originally the character's surname, which here is pronounced "hoohah"). She leaves with her father's servant, Ewue.

Centuries ago, the Amazons, a proud and fierce race of warrior women, led by their Queen, Hippolyta (voiced by Virginia Madsen), battled Ares (voiced by Alfred Molina), the god of war, and his army. During the battle, Hippolyta beheaded her son, Thrax (voiced by Jason Miller), whom Ares forcibly conceived with her, who is fighting for his father. Hippolyta then defeated Ares, but Zeus (voiced by David McCallum) stopped her from delivering the death strike. Instead, Hera (voiced by Marg Helgenberger) bound his powers with magic bracers so that he was deprived of his ability to draw power from the aura of violence and death he could instigate, effectively rendering him mortal, and only another god could release him. In compensation, the Amazons were granted the island of Themyscira, where they would remain eternally youthful and isolated from Man in the course of their duty of holding Ares prisoner for all eternity. Later, Hippolyta was granted a daughter, Princess Diana (voiced by Keri Russell), whom she shaped from the sand of the Themyscirian seashore and gave life with her own blood.
