Cinemas around the US are still closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and major studios are still adjusting.

After a few shuffles already, Mulan has now been officially removed from its latest August 21 release date with no new date given as of yet. Originally set to release in March, it was pushed to July 24, then to August. Disney is still assessing the best way to get this film to audiences, but it’s clear that at this point no release dates can be set in stone in this ongoing public health crisis.

There have been many notable changes to Disney release lately stretching all the way into 2027 with delays of one year to the upcoming Avatar sequels and a new untitled Star Wars trilogy.

Mulan is a new take on the beloved Disney animated feature. Directed by Niki Caro it stars Yifei Liu as Fa Mulan, Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, Li Gong as Xianniang, and Jet Li as the Emperor. The live action is set to introduce some new characters and a richer story as Mulan saves her ailing father from serving in the Imperial Army and taking his place, disguised as a man.

Whether Mulan will get a theatrical release or be seen on Disney’s streaming service Disney+ remains to be seen, but either way we know Disney will give this film the release it deserves and give the viewers the best possible experience.
