With social distancing guidelines at an all-time high, you’re probably wondering what’s going to happen to the upcoming theatrical releases, like the live-action Mulan movie. Well, we have some good news…and some bad news.
Disney just announced that Mulan will bypass theaters and premiere directly on the studio’s streaming service, Disney+, on September 4. Unfortunately, there’s a catch, since the movie will require an additional fee.
According to Disney CEO Bob Chapek, Mulan will be available via “premiere access,” which will entail a $30 charge. We’re pretty surprised by the news, since Disney+ already demands a monthly subscription fee of $7 (or $70 per year).
Chapek explained that it’s the best alternative, since movie theaters are closed for the unforeseen future. However, he assured subscribers that “premiere access” shouldn’t affect future releases.
