Disney’s long-awaited live-action adaptation of Mulan is now available to watch on Disney+ for $30. We’ve got one more promo video to share with you as a reminder that the movie has been released and it offers an extended clip of one of the action scenes in the film involving Mulan battling a group of villains.
I enjoyed Mulan and I thought it was a beautifully made film that offers some stunning visuals. It also does a good job of retelling the story in a less cartoony way. While my kids and I think the animated version of the story is still better, director Niki Caro still did a wonderful job bringing this story to life in a new way.
For those of you who don’t want to pay the $30 to watch the film, you will be able to watch it for free on Disney+ on December 4th. That news was shared on Disney+’s official website.
Mulan is totally worth watching, but ultimately it’s up to you on if you want to pay to watch it or wait a few months to watch it for free.
Here’s the synopsis:
When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.
Mulan stars Yifei Liu as Mulan; Jason Scott Lee as Böri Khan; Donnie Yen as Commander Tung; Yoson An as Cheng Honghui; with Gong Li as Xianniang; and Jet Li as the Emperor.
