Are you ready for feature films to be released on streaming platforms because they can't get a wide theatrical release? I don't know if I am or not, but Disney is going to test the waters here with Mulan.
Disney will release its live-action film Mulan online through its Disney Plus service on Sept. 4, but it won't be included as part of a standard subscription. Mulan will cost $30 in the US in addition to Disney Plus ' regular subscription fee, and it will be priced at roughly the same amount in international markets where it'll be available online too, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand and a number of countries in Western Europe.
Mulan , which Disney originally slated for theaters in March but had to push back the release date multiple times because of the coronavirus , will be released as what's known as premium video on demand. Typically, that means a high-priced rental, but Disney will give customers access to watch Mulan indefinitely as long as they keep their Disney Plus subscription active. You're essentially buying the brand-new movie, rather than unlocking a one-time rental.
