Live-Action Mulan Movie Will Skip Theatres And Will Land On Disney+ Next Month
After months and months of delays, the live-action remake of Mulan will finally be released.
But you won't be able to head to a cinema to see this incredible reboot, you'll have to have a Disney+ subscription.
A decision has been made to put the long awaited film onto the streaming service so that it can be seen by the masses without any more delay.
It was meant to go out to the public in March, then it was July, then August. Then it was listed as 'unset', meaning its release was put on hold indefinitely.
But Disney says the movie will be released on September 4 and you'll have to fork out USD$29.99 to see it. That's kind of steep considering a normal movie ticket would be nearly half that.
Disney CEO Bob Chapek made the announcement during the company's Q3 earnings call.
"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," said Chapek.

"We are announcing today that in most Disney Plus markets, including the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and a number of countries in Western Europe, we will be offering Disney Plus subscribers the epic adventure 'Mulan' on a premiere access basis beginning September 4."
While the price might be expensive, it's not a rental.
Disney has confirmed the film will be available for access for as long as you're a Disney+ subscriber. So look at it more like buying a DVD of the film rather than a movie ticket.
It's hoped the release on the streaming service will allow for it to be seen by people all over the world considering many aren't able or don't feel comfortable going to the cinema.
Chapek added: "We see this as an opportunity to bring this incredible film to a broad audience currently unable to go to movie theatres, while also further enhancing the value and attractiveness of the Disney Plus subscription with this great content."
Disney reported a USD$4.7 billion loss for the quarter, which was primarily driven by a USD$3.5 billion loss from the closure of its parks around the world. Some have been allowed to reopen, however many are still closed off.
Fans eager to see the Mulan live-action film will now only have to wait a few more weeks until they feast their eyes on the film.
