    According to Variety, in markets where Disney+ isn't available, Mulan will play in select cinemas.

    With such a premium rental price, it's no surprise that many people weren't a huge fan of Disney's announcement.

    Mulan is coming to Disney+!? ...For thirty dollars.

    "Disney's Mulan Live Action Remake will stream on Disney+, forgoing movie theaters" Internet: Oh, ok then "You must also pay 30 dollars to see it along with having Disney+'s 6.99 subscription" Internet:

    thirty dollars for a rental that requires a streaming service you must already be subscribed to... congratulations to Mulan for being the first blockbuster to premiere on 123movies

    But, in saying that, I'm sure there are still a bunch of fans out there who are beyond excited that this movie finally has a solid premiere date.
