You can now stream Mulan without paying an extra $35
Originally planned for a theatrical release, Mulan will now be on Disney+ at no extra cost.
It has been a tough year for movies, with a lot of theatrical releases being postponed or cancelled altogether due to the coronavirus pandemic. That was the case for the live-action Mulan, which was initially scheduled to hit cinemas in late March 2020.
Disney attempted to reschedule the release a couple of times, first for July then for August. With a lot of cinemas around the world still shut down, the big-budget remake made its way to Disney+ in early September as a digital release.
There was a catch: only Disney+ subscribers had access to it and they had to pay a one-off premium price of $35 to watch. Fast-forward three months and the entertainment giant is finally making the movie available to all Disney+ users at no extra cost starting on 4 December 2020.
What is Mulan about?
A live-action remake of the classic 90s animated film of the same name, Mulan is set in China and revolves around a young woman who disguises herself as a man to battle northern invaders. All in order to spare her ailing father from having to serve in the Imperial Army.
The Mulan cast features Yifei Liu, Donnie Yen, Gong Li, Jet Li, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Tzi Ma and Rosalind Chao, among others. The movie received mostly positive reviews and currently has a 74% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
How can I get Disney+?
Disney+ isn't currently offering free trials in Australia, so you'll have to subscribe for at least a month to enjoy everything the platform has to offer.
That includes a seamless streaming experience, premium features and a generous library of titles from not only Disney itself, but also subsidiaries National Geographic, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars.
Subscription to Disney+ in Australia cost $8.99 a month or $89.99 a year. There's no free trial anymore so you have to sign up to Disney+ directly if you want to watch. If you take the plunge, we suggest you check out hit show The Mandalorian, festive comedy Godmothered and Broadway hit Hamilton.
