Live-action Mulan will be released on Disney+ in September

Disney's live-action movie based on the Chinese folklore "The Ballad of Mulan" and on the 1998 animated movie, will head to Disney+ on September 4th. Check out the trailer below.

  • The adaptation of Disney's 1998 animated version's theatrical release was held back because of the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Instead, Disney announced it would be released through on demand streaming service, Disney Plus.
  • The film was done with a $200 million dollar budget. It's the most expensive film ever made by a female director.

Mulan was supposed to be released on March 27th, but due to the pandemic it was pushed back to July 24th. That didn't happen either and Mulan was delayed again to August 21st. Disney CEO Bob Chapek said: “We thought it was important to find alternative ways to bring [Mulan] in a timely manner”.

Singer Christina Aguilera, who performed the previous end credits theme recorded a new version of the theme for the new film as well as new material for the remake's soundtrack.

Countries that do not have Disney plus will have a theatrical release of the film on the same date. The idea for a live-action remake dates back to 2010, but it was in 2015 that director Niki Caro was hired in order to start production in 2017. Filming went from August 2018 to November 2019 in New Zeland and China.
