Disney’s newest live-action remake Mulan hit streaming platform Disney Plus today, September 4.
For the time being, the movie costs an extra $29.99 (£22) to watch on top of your subscription fee – and if you’re thinking of becoming a new user for their free trial, you can think again because that was scrapped earlier this year.
There eventually will be a time when Disney Plus members won’t have to pay extra to watch it however, but you’ll have to wait a few months…
When will Mulan be free to watch on Disney Plus?
According to the small print on an information page for the film’s release, Mulan will be to Disney Plus subscribers from December 4 at no additional cost.
That means we’ve got to wait exactly three months to see it if we don’t want to pay more for the privledge.
Mulan, which was originally set for release on March 27, will also be shown in cinemas.
On the subject of releasing the movie online as well as in theatres, Walt Disney Co CEO Bob Chapek 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.’
When the free trial scheme for new members was scrapped, a Disney spokeswoman told Variety: ‘We continue to test and evaluate different marketing, offers and promotions to grow Disney Plus.
‘The service was set at an attractive price-to-value proposition that we believe delivers a compelling entertainment offering on its own.’
