You can now rent Mulan on Disney Plus.
Walt Disney Studios
Disney’s new live action remake of the 1998 animated film Mulan is now available to stream on Disney Plus, but to watch the hotly anticipated movie, you’ll need more than a subscription to the channel. Disney‘s Mulan remake will cost you an extra $30 on top of your new or existing subscription. Read on to learn everything you need to know to watch it.
If you want to avoid that extra $30 fee, you can wait until Dec. 4, when Mulan becomes free to all Disney Plus subscribers. But that three-month wait might be a challenge for fans who have excitedly waited to see the human version of this time-honored warrior tale about personal grit, family bonds and overcoming impossible odds.
Both Disney films are based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan and follow a young woman in China who poses as a man in order to take the place of her ailing father in the war against the Huns. In the live-action film, helmed by director Niki Caro, Yifei Liu plays the title role. Unlike the G-rated animated classic, Mulan for 2020 is rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and is a more realistic telling of her epic journey (no Mushu or songs in this film). Critics have described the new film as exciting, vibrant and emotional.
