Disney Plus has announced Mulan, which is dropping on the service on Friday, will be available for free – however, fans will have to wait a little longer if they’re not prepared to cough up.

Last month it was confirmed the film would land on the streaming service on September 4, after its theatrical release, originally scheduled for March 27, was thwarted by the pandemic.

However, many were up in arms at the fact that in order to see it, people would have to shell out a premium fee – even if they were already a Disney Plus subscriber.

It was announced that it would cost viewers $29.99 (£22) extra on top of their £5.99 Disney Plus subscription to access the movie upon its release, and while it will allow viewers to watch Mulan as many times as they choose, as well as the opportunity to download the film onto multiple devices, not everyone was happy about the announcement.

Now Disney has announced the film will, eventually, be released for free for those who weren’t too keen on shelling out twenty-odd quid for the pleasure of watching it on their couch, but we’re going to have to wait for it.

On an information page for the release, the terms and conditions state that Mulan will be available to all subscribers from December 4 at no additional cost.

So, you know, if you’re prepared to wait three months to see a film that you’ve already been waiting months and months for, you get it for free.

It makes sense Disney is looking to recoup with a premium fee, seeing as Mulan’s budget is said to have been $200 million (£159 million) without including marketing fees.

Walt Disney Co CEO Bob Chapek previously revealed why they decided to release it for streaming as well as in movie theatres: ‘Despite the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, we’ve continued to build on the incredible success of Disney+ as we grow our global direct-to-consumer businesses.

‘The global reach of our full portfolio of direct-to-consumer services now exceeds an astounding 100 million paid subscriptions — a significant milestone and a reaffirmation of our DTC strategy, which we view as key to the future growth of our company.’

Mulan premieres on Disney Plus on Friday.
