Disney’s new live-action version of Mulan is now streaming on Disney Plus, but you will need more than just a subscription to watch the new film. The highly anticipated remake of the animated 1998 Disney hit will cost you an extra $30. Keep scrolling for all the details you need to know to watch.
Mulan will be available for free to all Disney Plus subscribers starting Dec. 4, but that’s a three-month wait for fans, many of whom have been excitedly waiting to check out this live-action update about the honored warrior who joined the Chinese army to save her ailing father.
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 her father’s place 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 musical, Mulan for 2020 is rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and is a more realistic telling. Critics have described the new film as exciting, vibrant and emotional.
