Disney’s live-action remake of “Mulan” will be available on Disney+ in the US on September 4. The announcement was made last Tuesday, August 4. The UK Cinema Association acknowledges Disney’s decision, but Chief Executive Phil Clapp sees it as “hugely disappointing” in case the same happens in the country. Clapp said, “With cinemas across the UK now continuing to re-open and welcome back their customers, the decision by Walt Disney Studios yesterday to put Mulan on their Disney+ service and not into cinemas will be seen by many as hugely disappointing and mistimed” on Wednesday, August 5. 40% of UK’s cinemas have been opening since July, but find it difficult to encourage moviegoers back because of online and delayed releases.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek said the cost of the film will depend on the country. Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and other Western countries are included in their list where the movie is to be released on Disney+, but they have no confirmed plans in the UK yet. “Mulan” will be released in countries where Disney+ is not available and cinemas that are re-opened. The film was originally scheduled for release in March, but has been postponed more than once.
