Disney stopped filming its live-action Mulan remake half a year ago but has not had the chance to schedule a secure theatrical release. Now Disney is giving up on the silver screen in favor of streaming at home. Mulan comes to Disney + on September 4th, but you have to pay an extra $ 30 to unlock it in your account.
Mulan follows on the heels of Trolls World Tour, which premiered on streaming services for $ 20. And judging by the insane success Trolls, it̵7;s safe to assume that Disney fans will shoot out for Mulan despite its price tag. For some families, $ 30 is less than the average trip to the cinema, and Disney gives you permanent access Mulan as long as you are subscribed to the Disney + service. (When is the last time you kept a movie from the theater?)

Still, some are not willing to pay $ 30 for a movie. And while some people like to own a copy of Mulan for $ 30, Disney says you’ll lose access to the movie if you cancel Disney +. We do not know when Mulan will be available for free so you may want to wait for a Blu Ray or digital download before purchasing it.
Disney’s attitude to Mulan is a serious deviation from last month’s release Hamilton, which was launched at Disney + last month at no extra cost. According to Disney CEO Bob Chapek, Mulan home-release is a “one-time”, not a new business model. Mulan is a big budget movie, and Disney is desperate to recoup the costs of a risky release at home.
You have the chance to pay $ 30 for Mulan came September 4th. Disney plans to premiere the film in the United States, Canada and New Zealand. Other territories, including China, may see a theater run for Mulan later this year.
