Disney’s Live-Action ‘Mulan’ Hits Bluray Next Week, Classic Version Gets 4K Release The Same Day

Disney may have found their long-term plan for the future with the streaming release of Mulan. In a game-changing move, the live-action remake was made exclusive to Disney+ subscribers for a fee of $29.99 on September 4th, and people were more than happy to pony up for it. And now if they want a physical copy of the film they’ll be able to get that, too, because it will be available on Bluray, DVD, and 4K beginning November 10th. Yep, just three days away.

Why wait around? Mulan was bounced around the schedule all year due to the pandemic. Originally set to open in theaters back in March, COVID-19 closures forced Disney to reevaluate. They moved Niki Caro’s hit film to July, and then again to August before taking it off the board completely. When Mulan was brought back up, Disney had decided streaming was the way to go.

So that $29.99 fee is going away in less than a month, and you can get Mulan digitally on different outlets than Disney+. The physical release is going to be a must-buy for some, since digital purchases don’t last forever and the buyer doesn’t actually own them, anyway.

Releasing alongside the live-action Mulan is the classic animated in a two-disc 4K UHD Blu-ray.

Both versions of the film will arrive with loads of deleted scenes, featurettes, and audio commentaries.
