Mulan Confirmed for Theatrical Release in China

The world is currently preparing to start streaming Mulan on Disney+. However, there is at least one country that will have to wait until next week to see the live-action reboot of the animated classic. It has just been confirmed that Mulan is still getting a theatrical release in China next Friday.

There is little doubt that Disney is determined to release Mulan in theaters despite the COVID-19 scare. Although the studio ultimately chose to make the film available for a fee on Disney+, it still had its eye on a major Chinese theatrical release for the movie. It was previously reported that Disney has been aiming for a premiere right before Mulan is made available on the streaming service. However, the final date for the Chinese premiere has been revealed.

According to Comic Book Movie, Mulan is set to hit Chinese theaters a week after the film's release on Disney+. In addition to that, a new poster for the movie has been unveiled. Check it out below.

The synopsis for Mulan reads as follows:

"When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father."

Mulan will be available by purchasing the $29.99 Premium Access on Disney+ starting September 4. The movie will hit Chinese theaters on September 11.
