I think McDonald's is obligated to bring back their Szechuan sauce when the new Mulan movie is released #rickAndMorty

McDonald’s has yet to address the Rick and Morty   craze on social media, but there’s still hope the fast food chain could resurrect its Szechuan sauce in the near future, as Disney is currently working on a live-action adaptation   of the animated classic that first inspired the product. I can't wait for nine more seasons. — zach (@zachaldas) April 2, 2017

Hey, when Disney remakes Mulan as a live action film, maybe McDonald's will bring back that Szechuan sauce. When McDonalds brings back Szechuan sauce. Audiences hungered for the discontinued product — enough so that an online petition to bring back the condiment has garnered roughly 6,400 signatures thus far — after one of the show’s   characters   cited it as one of his inspirations. You know what we want. — Nick Landis (@Lanipator) April 2, 2017
