After so many postponements, Disney finally decides to make available the Mulan movie for rental on Disney+.
Many fans have been waiting to see the female warrior, Mulan, as she fights to save her province from some invaders, but due to the global pandemic, the movie release date keeps shifting. Disney’s Mulan originally announced to release in movie theaters on March 27, 2020, keeps getting its release date postponed amidst the Coronavirus pandemic. However, Disney has announced a new release date for the movie, but the film will be made available for rentals at home on Disney+ for $29.99. The movie will be available in most Disney+ markets, including the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and some other select countries in Western Europe, as announced by the Disney CEO Bob Chapek.
However, the movie will be available in theaters for countries where Disney+ is not present and has its cinemas open.
As gotten from entertainment weekly, the Disney CEO Bob Chapek said that during an earnings call on Tuesday, "In order to meet the needs of consumers during this unpredictable period, we thought it was important to find alternative ways to bring this exceptional family-friendly film to them in a timely manner," Chapek said on the call. “We see this as an opportunity to bring this incredible film to a broad audience currently unable to go to movie theaters, while also further enhancing the value and attractiveness of a Disney+ subscription with this great content.”
The live-action adaptation of Mulan Cartoon in 1998 will now release on September 4, 2020, after being postponed March 27, then to July 24, and then finally to August 24 before it was postponed indefinitely due to the effects of the COVID-19 on the world.
