‘Mulan’ To Be Free For All Disney+ Subscribers Beginning December 4th

Disney’s live-action Mulan will be available on September 4th to Disney+ subscribers who pay the $29.99 “premier access” fee. But, as predicted, the film will soon be available to anyone with a standard Disney+ subscription, beginning just three months later.

Mulan will be free to all Disney+ subscribers beginning on December 4th. The news was revealed on the film’s preview page, but they took it away, only to put it back later on. Disney teased the possibility of expanding Mulan‘s availability last month, giving those who aren’t willing to pay the extra a way to see the anticipated remake.

Disney will also release Mulan into select markets where theaters have been fully reopened. The film had originally been set to open theatrically in March, but was delayed due to the coronavirus.

The film is directed by Niki Caro, and stars Liu Yifei in the title role, a young woman who masquerades as a man so she can fight in the Chinese Imperial Army in place of her father.

My review will be up later today, but I’ll say now that I hope people will support this film with their dollars so Disney makes more like it.
