Warner Bros. may be moving its 2021 films to streaming services, but Disney has been playing with the concept all year. The studio premiered the live-action Mulan exclusively on Disney+ in the U.S. on September 4, 2020, as a premium add-on, for $29.99. But as of December 4, 2020, Mulan moves into the catalog of Disney+ films available to all subscribers without the premium fee. 

“We see this as an opportunity to bring this incredible film to a broad audience currently unable to go to movie theaters, while also further enhancing the value and attractiveness of a Disney+ subscription with this great content,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek said this summer on an earnings call. “Given the rapid changes in consumer behavior, we believe that it’s more important than ever that we continue to grow our direct relationship to our customers.”

Where to stream Mulan online

Mulan joins a string of other classic Disney films available on Disney+.

You can stream Mulan, Hamilton, and everything else Disney+ has to offer wherever you’re connected to the internet. Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming service is available in Australia, Austria, Canada, the Channel Islands, France, Germany, India, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Italy, Monaco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.

Disney+ is supported on desktop browsers, a wide range of mobile devices, smart TVs, and game consoles. The platform will serve as the new home for Walt Disney Studios films as well as original, exclusive Disney+ content like the Star Wars TV series—including The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars—and a full slate of live-action Marvel shows.

What is Mulan about?

The live-action Mulan follows the same general story as the cartoon from 1998.

Directed by Niki Caro (The Zookeeper’s Wife, Whale Rider), Mulan (2020) is a coming-of-age fantasy that follows the original Chinese “Ballad of Mulan” more closely than Disney’s animated ’98 picture. Here’s the story of the legendary soldier Hua Mulan, who enlisted in China’s Imperial Army to protect her family as well as her homeland. It’s “an epic journey,” Disney says, “that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation… and a proud father.”

Singer-songwriter Christina Aguilera, who recorded a single called “Reflection” for the 1998 Mulan soundtrack, has returned with an all-new rendition of the song to accompany the release of the live-action adaptation.

The film—whose runtime clocks in at just shy of two hours—stars Yifei Liu, Donnie Yen, Tzi Ma, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Ron Yuan, Gong Li, and Jet Li.
