Hua Mulan is
coming to all streaming channels….
For all those people who desperately want to watch
Mulan’s exclusive look but don’t want to pay for a Disney Plus subscription, we have good news
for you! The movie is coming to FandangoNow, Amazon, Vudu, and other digital
streaming channels on 6th October!
The movie is currently available at $29.99 for preorder.
Mulan released on 4th September on Disney Plus as a “Premier Access” title. This means that the subscribers of Disney Plus should
have to pay an extra $30 to enjoy the movie. They also need to maintain
their monthly Disney Plus subscription for $6.99 in order to keep the movie in
their watch list.
Now, Disney is making the movie accessible to
anyone and of course anywhere (you still have to purchase it, though). Mulan is already released for preorder in HD, SD, or 4K UHD.
Moving Mulan to Disney Plus instead of the originally
intended theatrical release is quite ballsy and a pivotal decision for the
company. Though, Disney didn’t release any number to deduce whether the movie
was a success or a failure at the Streaming channel.
Disney’s chief financial officer, Christine McCarthy, said the company has been “very pleased
with what we saw over the four-day weekend” at the latest press conference,
though, we will reserve our judgment until next earnings call of Disney.
Disney’s latest stunt shows that the company is
still trying to gauge how to function with the unexpected uncertainties in
the distribution markets and filmmaking industry affected by the pandemic.
Warner Bros’ Tenet got good revenue internationally yet failed to earn well
within the US because of limited theatres functioning.
That’s the reason why Mulan shifted to Disney
Plus, and you can expect to see more movies heading to streaming as well. The
film will be available to stream on Disney Plus for regular subscribers
starting December 14th.
