However with ‘Mulan’ the makers are trying to do a new experiment. Mulan skipping theatrical release will now be available on Disney Plus and the subscribers need to pay $29.99 to rent the movie on top of streaming service’s monthly subscription fee of $6.99.

But the global pandemic and no hope about reopening of theatres, the makers had to finally head for a digital release.

The making of film started back in August 2018. ‘Mulan’ is the most expensive movie directed by a female. The movie was scheduled to release in theatres on 27th March and a red carpet premiere at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles was organised on March 9. But just 3 days later, the Covid-19 pandemic forced the makers to hold the film.  After delaying multiple times, finally the movie will be releasing on Disney Plus.
