In 1998, an animated Disney feature film adapted the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan for the silver screen. This year, Disney will breathe new life into the classic story with the live-action remake Mulan.
While the 1998 classic will serve as the foundation of the movie, it’s going to shed some of its more goofy elements. Don’t expect a jive-talking dragon sidekick. Instead, the movie will tap into the original Chinese legend to make an action-drama for the ages.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Mulan 2020.

A live-action Mulan remake has been in the works since 2010. The project went dormant until 2015, when Disney revamped the production.

The premier was held on March 9, 2020, but the theatrical wide-release was delayed because of Covid-19. It will now be released in the US exclusively on Disney+.

“Its origins date back centuries, and its animated predecessor is beloved within the ’90s Disney canon, but the latest version of Mulan couldn’t be more relevant, vital, and alive.” – RogerEbert.com
“Mulan” is a spirit lifter, and though it doesn’t arrive as planned, it could not arrive at a better time.” – SF Chronicle
“The international cast is nothing short of great, led by Yifei Liu’s movie star turn as a boundaries-shattering, stereotype-defying hero-warrior for her time and for ours.” – Chicago Sun-Times
