The Disney movie Mulan , which would actually be released at the end of July, can be seen via Disney + from September 4. The live action remake of the animated film from 1998 therefore appears in cinemas, Disney announces.

Mulan has been postponed several times due to the coronavirus . At the end of July it was announced that the film has been removed from the release calendar.

“We now need to think about how we can do things differently,” said Disney CEO Bob Chapek, according to CNN . “We think it is important to show this family film to the public in time.”

The intention is that Mulan can be seen in the United States from Disney + on September 4 for an amount of $ 29.99 (more than 25 euros). It is not yet clear what Dutch Disney + customers have to pay to see the film. In countries where the streaming service is not available and where the cinemas are open, Mulan will simply be shown on the silver screen.

Several major films have been postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, the sequel to Avatar is now in late 2021 instead of late 2022 and the still untitled Star Wars movie that was planned for 2022 will now be released in late 2023.
