Mulan Movie Releasing On Disney Plus

Mulan Movie Releasing On Disney Plus

Mulan, which cost an estimated $200m (£152m) to make, will come out in cinemas in countries that do not now have Disney+ platform, such as China, and where movie theaters are back in business, the company's boss added.

"I understand the confusion for why we need to pay extra to watch #Mulan on Disney+, but here are the facts".

The company's theme parks revenue fell 85% and incurred a loss of $3.5 billion but Disney+ gained 57.5 million paid subscribers as of the end of June.

The Guardian described it as "seismic", Empire magazine said it was "potentially devastating news for theatre chains and us, the moviegoing public", and The Telegraph accused Disney of "behaving as though it wants our cinemas to die". The platform already has 60.5 million subscribers, according to Variety.

The 30-year-old 13 Reasons Why actor took to Twitter to defend Disney for charging extra to stream the new film. It will bring in content from ABC Studios, Fox Television, FX, Freeform, Searchlight, and 20th Century Studios - all owned by Disney. Additionally, Chapek admitted that Hulu has "no brand awareness" nor any global licenses outside the US.

Disney's decision to release its Mulan remake on its streaming platform has been strongly criticised by the body representing British cinemas.

Mulan will open in a limited market in September, specifically in countries that don't have Disney+ and have theaters open for business.

The decision to skip most of the world's cinemas and go straight to streaming follows uncertainty about when big film theatre chains in the USA will be able to reopen.

"It must continue to aggressively promote its growing suite of video streaming services given the competitive nature of this market".

Although many people are looking forward to seeing Mulan, we don't know when theaters will be opening again.

"However, this is really meant to be the icing on the cake rather than the main event - and launch costs mean losses in the division have mounted", he said.

He praised Disney for keeping its overall costs in check but said the numbers "are far more Beast than Beauty".
