After several months of delays due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Disney’s historic epic Muian will now completely skip its theatrical release and premiere of the Disney Plus streaming service, as CEO Bob Chapek revealed in the company’s latest call for profits.
Unlike other films that have debuted on-duty, such as Lady and the Tramp and Artemis Fowl, the Mouse House charges a $ 29.99 (about £ 23 / AU $ 42) premium to the live-action Mulan to stream.
“We’re looking at ‘Mulan̵
Disney’s Mulan is reportedly premiering on Disney Plus on September 4, 2020 in all territories where the service has already been launched. In addition to the USA, this also includes Australia, Austria, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
It will be interesting to see how Disney’s Mulan fares at this price, which is about $ 10 more than Universal’s Trolls World Tour when it came on-demand.
Mulan has a budget of $ 200 million plus additional advertising expenses. Fortunately, Disney amassed a large number of potential customers on Disney Plus – the earnings call also revealed that the streaming service now has 60.5 million subscribers.
