The live action take on Mulan debuts on the Disney+ service, without the need to pay out an extra twenty quid for the privilege.

Perhaps just a little overshadowed in the aftermath of Warner Bros’ announcement over its upcoming slate, today’s the day that Disney’s live action blockbuster Mulan arrives on Disney+.

Disney of course abandoned a theatrical release for the movie, choosing to go the opposite way to Warner Bros with its release of Tenet. Instead, Mulan was debuted as a Disney+ premium access title, with no theatrical prints made available to exhibitors in the UK. Instead, existing subscribers, who were already paying five or six quid a month to access Disney+, had to pay an extra £19.99 on top of that to see the film.

This did not go down well. Since then, the film has been released on physical media, and other on demand stores at a more affordable price.

Now, as promised, Disney is bringing the film to Disney+ as part of its existing package for subscribers. Thus, no extra charge, and the movie has been added to the service with no further strings attached.

Interestingly, Disney hasn’t repeated the premium access model since, with instead its next major planned theatrical release – Soul – going direct to the Disney+ service on Christmas day, as part of existing subscription plans.
