'Mulan' Delayed until End of August

Unfortunately for ‘Mulan’, it was inevitable.

After ‘Tenet’ announced another two week pause before release, Disney has followed suit. After a surge in Covid-19 cases, ‘Mulan’ will now be released on August 21st. It was originally slated for release on March 27th and even had its world premiere, before Coronavirus led to it to be moved to July 24th.

Director Niki Caro took to Instagram to address the situation. She said, ‘making this film has been one of the most satisfying and exhilarating experiences of my entire career, and I’ve been so fortunate to be on this journey with some of the best cast and crew in the business. We are so excited to share this film with the world, but given the current ever-shifting circumstances we all are experiencing, unfortunately, we have to postpone the worldwide release of Mulan for now.’

She expanded, ‘our hearts are with everyone the world over who is affected by this virus, and we hope that Mulan’s fighting spirit will continues to inspire those who are working so hard to keep us all safe’.

Although there were rumours of Disney launching Mulan on Disney Plus, it seems they are indeed adamant for a theatrical release. Artemis Fowl recently ditched the cinema for a streaming release, but it was never intended to be a huge blockbuster.

Other Disney titles affected by the Covid-19 pandemic are Black Widow and Jungle Cruise. Black Widow has moved from May to November, whilst Jungle Cruise has moved a whole year to 2021.

‘Mulan is the epic adventure of a fearless young woman who masquerades as a man in order to fight Northern Invaders attacking China. The eldest daughter of an honored warrior, Hua Mulan is spirited, determined and quick on her feet.’
