Disney’s live-action Mulan has yet another release date. This marks the third time that this movie has gotten a new release date. It is now expected to be released on August 21st instead of July 24th.
“While the pandemic has changed our release plans for ‘Mulan’ and we will continue to be flexible as conditions require, it has not changed our belief in the power of this film and its message of hope and perseverance,” said Disney’s co-chairman and chief creative officer Alan Horn and co-chairman Alan Bergman. “Director Niki Caro and our cast and crew have created a beautiful, epic, and moving film that is everything the cinematic experience should be, and that’s where we believe it belongs — on the world stage and the big screen for audiences around the globe to enjoy together.”
The movie industry basically ground to a halt this year due to the impact of COVID-19. While movie theaters are beginning to reopen, it really isn’t known how many movie fans will want to frequent them.
Mulan cost around $200 million to make and is expected to garner a solid reception, particularly in China. Disney is doing everything in its power to give Mulan a strong release.
Disney’s movie lineup has seen lots of shake ups this year. Beyond Mulan getting pushed back, other movies like The Eternals, Jungle Cruise, Soul, and several more have received new release dates.
