Disney Postpones ‘Mulan’ Indefinitely Due to Coronavirus Spikes


Today, The Walt Disney Company updated their theatrical release calendar in response to COVID-19 cases spiking in major cities all across the United States and because movie theatres still remain closed due to the outbreak.  Disney’s live-action Mulan was noticeably missing from the schedule and has been postponed indefinitely.

“Over the last few months, it’s become clear that nothing can be set in stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis, and today that means pausing our release plans for ‘Mulan’ as we assess how we can most effectively bring this film to audiences around the world,” a Disney spokesperson said.

This marks the fourth delay for Mulan which was first scheduled to premiere on March 27. The film was then moved to July 24 and then again to Aug. 21.
