Disney’s Mulan likely to be postponed again

The release date of the first 2020 summer blockbuster is under the scrutiny once more.

We are sorry to announce another bad news for the movie fans. The live-action remake of Mulan was meant to be the first large film production that will hit the UK cinemas this summer after easing the lockdown restrictions in July. Producers also hoped that an epic adventure of a young female Chinese warrior will bring keen spectators back to the theatres and together with Christopher Nolan’s Tenet will start putting the damaged entertainment industry back on its feet. Unfortunately, according to the latest reports, Mulan might be delayed again.

The gigantic project from The Walt Disney Studios and directed by Niki Caro originally supposed to came out in March 2020 but it was postponed due coronavirus outbreak on July 24th when all the cinemas in Britain should be fully reopened and operating as usual. However, it looks like that people in Disney are extremely careful with letting their baby out of the house. It is understandable after all, that movie with 200-million dollars budget needs to perform well all over the world (and some key markets, for example the one in China, remain shut down for screening). Although studio has not officially decided on this matter yet, we can very likely to expect that our waiting for Mulan will be extended, at least by another couple of weeks. Some American journalists nevertheless speculate that blockbuster can be moved even further and we might not see it during this season at all.

Mulan tells a story of a brave Chinese maiden who disguises herself as a male soldier in order to save her father. Upcoming live-action feature film is in fact a remake of Disney’s own 1998 animated historical adventure. The new flick received predominantly pleasant reviews (from bunch of lucky reporters who seen the film in March) and is starred by some of the most popular Chinese actors such as Yifei Liu, Donnie Yen, Li Gong or Jet Li.
