“Mulan” is no longer headed for a major theatrical release. The Walt Disney Co. said Tuesday that it will debut its live-action blockbuster on its subscription streaming service, Disney+, on Sept. 4. But this is no “Hamilton.”
Customers will have to pay an additional $29.99 on top of the cost of the monthly subscription to rent “Mulan.”
The company plans to release it in theaters in areas where Disney+ is not available.“Mulan,” a live-action remake of the animated film, was one of the first films affected by the coronavirus pandemic and the closure of theaters.
Originally set for a late March release, “Mulan” has been delayed four times since.
