The adventures of Chinese warrior “Mulan”, Disney’s much-anticipated blockbuster, will ultimately not be shown in theaters until streaming in September, as tradition dictates, the group said on Tuesday.
The release of the live-action version of the famous cartoon had already been postponed three times, with US cinemas closed due to the spread of the new coronavirus in the country.
This movement has been called “unique” by Disney CEO Bob Chapek.
Before the pandemic, film studios traditionally waited 90 days to release their films on online platforms after their theatrical release.
The film will still be released in theaters in some countries where the streaming service is not yet offered, such as China.
Production costs about $ 200 million.
