Yet another release date for Disney’s live-action adaptation Mulan. The film will now hit theaters on Aug. 21.
It is for the third time that Disney has delayed the theatrical release of “Mulan” amid coronavirus pandemic. It was earlier slated for July 24 release.
Alan Horn, co-chairman and chief creative officer, and Alan Bergman, co-chairman, The Walt Disney Studios in a statement said:
“While the pandemic has changed our release plans for ‘Mulan’ and we will continue to be flexible as conditions require, it has not changed our belief in the power of this film and its message of hope and perseverance.
Director Niki Caro and our cast and crew have created a beautiful, epic, and moving film that is everything the cinematic experience should be, and that’s where we believe it belongs – on the world stage and the big screen for audiences around the globe to enjoy together”.
Warner Bros. has also postponed the release of “Tenet,” a sci-fi epic from director Christopher Nolan, for a second time. Starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson, is now expected to debut on Aug. 12.
