“Hello All. The words Loyal, Brave, and True have never meant more to me than they do in this time, and I am very moved today to be able to announce that the new release date for our movie is July 24 2020 ❤️Once it is again safe to gather, to sit in a movie theatre together and share the experience of of a great story, we will be there. And we can’t wait to share Mulan’s journey with you all. Worldwide. On big screens. 🙏🌸” (via @NikiCaro)
But the movie theater landscape is currently looking bleak as cinemas around the world are struggling to reopen. With COVID-19 on the rise again in many states, the new release date could be in jeopardy, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It wouldn’t be surprising if Disney changes the date, again.
Mulan isn’t the only Disney film that’s been affected by the pandemic. Black Widow, one of the most anticipated MCU films of 2020 was originally supposed to air in May, but is now planning to be released in November of this year. Disney and Pixar’s Onward was released back in March but was pulled from cinemas due to the pandemic. Instead, it was made available for Disney+ subscribers back in April.
Disney’s live-action #Mulan has already postponed its original release date from March to July. Now that rescheduled date is in serious jeopardy as coronavirus cases surge in a number of states across the U.S. https://t.co/glXFBrnr74
