After already being delayed once, Walt Disney Studios has again moved the release date for the live-action version of Mulan. The film is now set to hit theaters August 21st.
Studios’ co-chairmen Alan Horn and Alan Bergen said of the announcement:
While the pandemic has changed our release plans for ‘Mulan’ and we will continue to be flexible as conditions require, it has not changed our belief in the power of this film and its message of hope and perseverance. Director Niki Caro and our cast and crew have created a beautiful, epic, and moving film that is everything the cinematic experience should be, and that’s where we believe it belongs — on the world stage and the big screen for audiences around the globe to enjoy together.
Mulan was originally scheduled for March 27, but had been delayed until July 24…before today’s announcement.
