Disney Pushes Back the 'Mulan' Release Date Yet Again

Disney is delaying the release of the upcoming movie Mulan yet again amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The movie was originally supposed to hit theaters in March, but the release was delayed until July 24 when movie theaters around the country were shut down.

Things seemed to be looking better in the U.S. and movie theaters set a target reopening date for July 15, but cases are starting to surge again in many areas and movie dates are now being shifted again.

Mulan is now scheduled to hit theaters on August 21. The other big summer movie, Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet, is going to be released just days earlier.

“While the pandemic has changed our release plans for Mulan and we will continue to be flexible as conditions require, it has not changed our belief in the power of this film and its message of hope and perseverance. Director Niki Caro and our cast and crew have created a beautiful, epic, and moving film that is everything the cinematic experience should be, and that’s where we believe it belongs – on the world stage and the big screen for audiences around the globe to enjoy together,” said Alan Horn, Co-Chairman and Chief Creative Officer, and Alan Bergman, Co-Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios.

The red carpet premiere for Mulan was held on March 9 in Los Angeles, just days before people started to quarantine.
