Here is some exciting news for fans of Disney’s upcoming live-action film, Mulan. All Disney Plus customers will be able to watch the film, with no extra cost, in three months. Meanwhile, those who are willing to pay an additional $30 will be able to stream it from Friday, September 4.
From tomorrow, subscribers who will pay the early-access fee, on top of the regular $6.99-per-month subscription, will have access to the film. The Premier Access offer will be available until November 2. And from December 4, Mulan will be available to all. An update on the Disney Plus website read, “Your access to ‘Mulan’ will continue as long as you are an active Disney Plus subscriber.”
In August, Disney announced that it would be releasing Mulan as an early-access option on Disney Plus. This was done as the following several delays in its release due to the COVID crisis. The movie can be purchased directly from Disney at disneyplus.com. It can also be brought via third-party platforms including Apple, Google and Roku.
The Premiere Access release for Mulan is done to help Disney regain the movie’s estimated $200 million production budget. This is done as many theatres across the globe have been shut due to the coronavirus pandemic. The movie will release in mainland China cinemas on September 11.
Disney’s Mulan is a live-action retake on the 1998 animated feature. The animated film is currently streaming on Disney Plus. Like the original film, this Niki Caro directorial will follow the young Chinese warrior who disguises herself as a man to save her elderly father from having to serve in the military.
