On IMDb, the film currently sits at a rating of 5.4 out of 10 stars after 21,000+ reviews on the popular site. The original 1998 animated film sits at a more standard 7.6 out of 10 stars rating on IMDb.

“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.”

The live-action 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+.

Mulan stars Yifei Liu (Mulan), Jet Li (Emperor), Donnie Yen (Commander Tung), Gong Li (Xianniang), Yoson An (Honghui), and Jason Scott Lee (Böri Khan). The live-action ‘Mulan‘ is now streaming via Disney+ Premier Access (additional $29.99 USD per subscription), and will be available to all Disney+ subscribers this December. Both the animated Mulan and Mulan II are currently available to stream exclusively on Disney+.

One thought on “‘Mulan’ Receives Lowest Disney Live-Action Audience Rating to Date

  1. Unfortunately with the price tag of $29.99 to get this movie on Disney+, the ratings are going to be low because people do not want to pay this fee on top of their Disney+ fee. I personally purchased advanced screening at the above price as I had 5 people who wanted to see it. It was by far the best live action remake from Disney to date.
