Disney has been making a lot of bank in the box office thanks to their live-action adaptations of animated classics, and Mulan was slated to come out later this year. As it turns out, Disney is now pushing back the release date to 2020.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the live-action Mulan movie has changed its release date from Nov. 2 of this year to March 27,2020. It would make sense that the movie should be pushed back since we haven't had any significant updates other than the identity of the director Niki Caro as well as lead actress Liu Yofei a.k.a. Crystal Liu.


Besides the Mulan film, Disney has also chosen to remove a female Santa Claus movie Noelle starring Anna Kendrick from its November 2019 release date. Now the movie will premiere on Disney's upcoming streaming service.

Going back to Mulan though, I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't be onboard with remaking the movie, just like there are people who aren't interested in the Lion King, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast adaptations. Then again, the movies have been making a lot of profit in the box office, and you can't blame Disney from doing business with whatever they have in their disposal.

Mulan is set to come out March 27, 2020.
