Disney’s ‘Mulan’ Will Premiere Theatrically in China

Disney’s ‘Mulan’ Will Premiere Theatrically in China. Disney made a historical announcement that the live-action remake of the animated classic, Mulan, would be the first title to premier on Disney+’s new premium access feature. The film will premiere on September 4th, will cost $29.99 USD and will last as long as subscribers keep their Disney+ account. But what does this mean for countries who do not have access to Disney+ or have begun to reopen theaters?

Disney is making plans to release ‘Mulan’ theatrically, beginning in China and trickling into other markets and theaters as countries re-open during recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The film was originally slated to release in theaters March 27th, but was delayed 3 times by Disney due to the pandemic, leading the company to choose releasing the film digitally. Many fans have been urging Disney to release the film digitally, some as early as the first cancelation and/or after the very early releases of both Disney-Pixar’s Onward and Disney’s Frozen II on Disney+.

“When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.”

No official release date in China has been announced at the time of writing, but the film will likely premiere around the same time as it’s digital release on September 4, 2020 via Disney+. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all thing Disney!
