The Live Action Version Of Mulan Lands On Disney+ Today
After months of delays, the day is finally upon us. Those who have waited for so long will finally be able to feast their eyes and ears on the live-action version of Mulan as it lands on Disney+ today (September 4).
The movie is expected to dropped at midnight Pacific Time in America, which is 5pm AEST in Australia and 8am in the UK.
But don't expect to just whack it on the TV for free. This movie will set you back £19.99 (USD$30/AUD$40), however once you have paid for it it will be yours to watch again and again. Think of it more like buying a DVD rather than seeing it in the cinema.
If you don't want to pay that huge whack for a movie, you can wait until December 4 when the movie will be placed on Disney+ for free.
For the uninitiated, Mulan is about a woman who is desperate to prove her worth to her father and ends up pretending to be a bloke and joins the army to fight against the Mongol army.
In classic Disney fashion, there are high and low moments, epic songs about bravery and, of course, a good life lesson.
The movie was meant to premiere in cinemas in March, then it was pushed out to July because of the coronavirus. It suffered another delay and was on hold until August and then it was listed as 'unset', meaning its release was put on hold indefinitely.

Thankfully, Disney realised this pandemic could go on for a while and decided to chuck it on its streaming service.
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."
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."
So, if you're keen for a sing-a-long, get Mulan on your telly pronto.
