You can rent Mulan on Disney Plus Sept. 4.

Walt Disney Studios

The live-action version of Mulan is coming to Disney Plus on Sept. 4. But unlike Hamilton and Beyonce’s Black Is King, you’ll need more than just a subscription to watch the new Disney film based on the animated classic. In fact, it’ll cost you an extra $30 to watch the film.

If you haven’t seen the original version of Mulan, it follows a young woman in China who poses as a man in order to take her father’s place in the war against the Huns. It’s based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan. The live-action movie starring Yifei Liu will follow the same story, but this time it’s rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and is fashioned as a more realistic telling. Critics have described the remake as exciting, vibrant and emotional.

The movie was originally supposed to hit theaters in March, but was rescheduled due to the coronavirus. Here’s how to watch Mulan when it’s available. You can see the trailer below.

Since Mulan is the first movie that Disney Plus is charging its subscribers extra to watch, it’s unclear how the purchasing process will work. Disney Plus could provide a “Rent” button for you to click and may charge the payment card on file.

Will I be able to download Mulan to watch offline?

Disney Plus currently lets you download all of its shows and movies to watch offline, but we’re unsure if that will apply to Mulan at this time. You’ll be able to view it as long as you have an active Disney Plus subscription.
