The live-action remake of Mulan will still appear in the halls. Disney previously announced that the film will only be seen via the streaming service Disney +, but in some countries the film will still be shown in theaters.
Much has been written about the live-action remake of Disney classic Mulan. The film was supposed to be released in March 2020, but was postponed several times due to the outbreak of the corona virus. In the end, Disney decided not to release the film in theaters, but to bring it directly to the streaming service Disney +, without a release in theaters. But now the film seems to be in the halls after all.
Disney has released a new poster for the film in China and it says that the film will be shown in Chinese cinemas after all. China is currently the only country where the film will also hit theaters, but other countries may follow.
Although China was the first country to hit the coronavirus, the pandemic is now seemingly under control. When there was a slight flare-up of the virus in the capital Beijing, all more than 21 million residents were quickly tested for the corona virus. This allowed the carriers of the virus to be quickly found and quarantined to prevent further spread of the virus. In the meantime, the cinemas in China have been reopened for a while and so new films may also be released. The date why the film will be shown in Chinese theaters has yet to be announced.
China is therefore the only country where Mulan will also be on display in the halls. All other countries will Mulan must watch via Disney +. In addition, it is not sufficient to have a subscription to the streaming service. But you will have to pay a little extra to watch the film.
Those who want to watch the new film will have to pay $ 29.99 (25.5 euros) on top of the price of a subscription to Disney +. Such a subscription costs barely 6.99 dollars per month (5.95 euros). So you have to pay more for one film than for four months access to the full catalog. This decision has already attracted a lot of criticism from Disney + users.
