Everyone has been anticipating the release of the live action Mulan. This film was set to premiere in theatres this past March, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic all theaters and even the Disney Parks were closed. We have news today regarding when Disney fans may expect to see the live action Mulan.

Postponed Release Date

Probably the most anticipated Disney movie for my young princesses was that of the live action movie “Mulan.” I still remember getting chills as I watched the trailer for this film before the Princess half-marathon in February.

I couldn’t wait for our family to watch the film in theaters March 27th. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 our entire world changed and movie theaters were close

Disney announced later that this film would be released on July 24th. As time passed, a new release date was given for August 21st.

Coming to Disney+

Today the Disney Company released their 3rd Quarter and 9 months earnings for fiscal 2020. In this they shared earnings still under the COVID-19 pandemic. We will share more information with you regarding this very soon.

One item that was shared during this release was the release date for the live-action Mulan.

The live action Mulan will premiere on September 4th. Mulan will premiere in movie theaters that may be open around the country, but it will also be available on Disney+.

Disney+ subscribers may stream this brand new release in their homes for an additional $29.99. This is the first time that the Disney Studios has offered this for a new release.

Disney Studios is streaming this new release on Disney+ under a trial basis. If this film is received with a great response then they will consider offering this for future films.


At the time that we learned that Mulan would be available on Disney+ it was unclear as to what would be included with the $29.99 streaming fee. Those Disney+ subscribers who pay $29.99 for the live action Mulan will have access to this great new film for the length of their subscription with Disney+.

Mulan will release on Sept. 4th at available theaters and for $29.99 for Disney+ Subscribers

While it’s great they are finally releasing the movie with all the push back. I agree the TV will not do the movie justice so maybe $30 is a little steep. Kids have really been at a loss during the pandemic as well as parents loosing work… i think disney plus subscribers should not have to pay to view it.

As a season passholder paying for tickets when I can’t attend (my daughter has CF, we cannot go…despite low attendance)…and who even if I could attend the experience has been diminished…and as someone who paid for 3 years of D+ at once…I’m not willing to spend $30 to see it on my TV. I’ll wait for it to be widely available. Disney gets plenty of my money. I understand they have suffered a blow, but so has MANY in the country. It’s not worth it to me, no matter how much I want to see the movie.

I've been waiting anxiously for the live-action movie of Mulan. The original holds a special place in my heart for a couple of personal reasons. However, I really want to see this in the theater. I'm not sure I would want to pay $30 to watch it on TV. I want the full effect of the movie on the big screen. I'm not sure a television will do it justice, especial for a first-time showing. I'll think about it.
