Live-Action ‘Mulan’ Gets A New Release Date
Disney is postponing Mulan’s return to the big screen for a third time. The live action remake's release is being bumped from July 24 to August 21, 2020.
"While the pandemic has changed our release plans for Mulan and we will continue to be flexible as conditions require, it has not changed our belief in the power of this film and its message of hope and perseverance," Disney’s co-chairmen Alan Horn and Alan Bergman said in a statement which appeared on Variety.
The statement continued, "Director Niki Caro and our cast and crew have created a beautiful, epic, and moving film that is everything the cinematic experience should be, and that’s where we believe it belongs — on the world stage and the big screen for audiences around the globe to enjoy together."
Mulan was originally set to open in theaters on November 2018, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Then it was later pushed back to March 2020. But with the COVID-19 pandemic creating uncertainty around the reopening of movie houses, it was moved to July.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Moira had been chosen to sing her own version of the iconic theme song "Reflection" for the film's Philippine release. Watch our MYXclusive interview about her experience here:
