The worldwide theatrical release of the anticipated film, Mulan, has been postponed time and time again due to the COVID-19 pandemic since its canceled March premiere. Now, Disney has abandoned the idea of showing the live-action remake of Mulan in North American theaters altogether. On August 5, the entertainment conglomerate announced that Mulan is to debut on Disney+ on September 4.
However, Disney+ members will have to pay an extra fee for watching the blockbuster – a first in Disney+ history. Users will have to fork out an additional $29.99 United States dollars on top of the usual US$6.99 monthly membership cost as Mulan will be considered a premium service on Disney+. The price might differ slightly in other countries like Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and various parts of Europe.
However, the film may still make its way to the big screen on September 4 in regions where Disney+ is not available. For Hong Kong viewers, there is still no decision as to whether or not Mulan will screen in cinemas.
Mulan stars Liu Yifei (also known as Crystal Liu 劉亦菲), Donnie Yen (甄子丹), Jet Li (李連杰), and Gong Li (鞏俐).
