Streaming Mulan on Disney Plus Sept. 4? Here’s one thing you need to know


You can rent Mulan on Disney Plus from Sept. 4.

Walt Disney Studios

In less than a week, the new live-action version of Mulan will be available to watch on Disney Plus 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 ’90s animated classic. In fact, it’ll cost you an extra $30 for Premier Access to watch the film. The movie will be available for all Disney Plus subscribers at no additional charge on Dec. 4, 2020.

The animated version of Mulan is based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan and 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. Yifei Liu plays the character Mulan in the live-action movie, which will follow the same story as the original movie, but this time it’s rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and is fashioned as a more realistic telling than the animated musical. 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.
