‘Mulan’ Is Skipping Theaterical Release to Debut on Disney+ This September… At a Price!

COVID strikes again, and this time, it’s affecting Disney’s highly-anticipated live-action remake of Mulan. 

After the film’s release date was delayed several times due to the pandemic and movie theater closures, the company has opted for a streaming release. The high profile film , a remake of the 1998 classic, will debut on Disney+ on Friday, September 4. 

However, the film will come with a rental cost in addition to the $6.99 monthly streaming service subscription fee. 

Those who want to access to the film will have to pay a one-time rental fee of $29.99.

While that may seem steep, think about how much it would cost you to go to the movies with just one other person. Depending on the time of day and the ticket type, it can cost upwards of $16 per person (without snacks). The good news here is that “rental fee” is slightly misleading because you’re actually paying to own the movie. 

This Is Insider’a Kristin Acuna confirmed that the 29.99 price point will allow subscribers to have “continuous access to the film for as long as they remain subscribers to the service.”

 
Pulling Mulan from the theatrical release calendar and opting for a digital release allows Disney to test the VOD model. While TV Line reports that Disney CEO Bob Chapek emphasized this kind of release is a “one-off” and not a “business windowing model” that they’re looking at, it’s hard to deny that this model works. 
 
Unfortunately for movie theaters,  who have fallen on tough times due to the pandemic, this may be the way of the future, especially with a pandemic looming large and uncertain. 
 
Disney+ may find, however, that the price is too steep — charging $10 more than Universal did for Trolls World Tour and Apple TV’s Tom Hanks feature Greyhound in addition to a subscription service — in a time where unemployment is high and talks of a Great Depression are all too common. 
 
Mulan is still set to premiere in theaters internationally. 
 
Disney+ offers a slew of great original programming including Disney Channel hits and classic films along with Beyonce’s Black Is King documentary and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway smash Hamilton

Best & Funniest Tweets from the Season 29 Premiere of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Dancing with the Stars Season 29 premiere best tweets

Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) season 29 premiered tonight (September 14) with a pretty impressive lineup. 

AJ McLean from Backstreet Boys, actress and real estate agent Chrishell Stause, and rapper Nelly all took the stage to show off their moves. 

But all eyes were on Tiger King’s Carole Baskin! There’s no denying everyone was watching to see her debut! 

I’d like to say that’s the craziest thing to happen in 2020, but unfortunately, the show is airing without an audience and with plenty of safety precautions including the judges sitting six-feet apart. 

Oh, and Tyra Banks replaced Tom Bergeron, which didn’t sit well with many on Twitter. 

Here are the best tweets from the premiere:
