Since September 4th you can watch "Mulan" (2020) at an extra cost on Disney+, from November 26th the movie will finally be available on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K-Blu-ray – with exclusive bonus material as well as six additional scenes.
It was certainly not an easy decision for Disney not to release the very expensive, potential megablockbuster "Mulan" to the cinemas as planned. The cinema release in March 2020 fell into the water due to the Corona pandemic – and finally, the remake was made available directly on the in-house streaming platform Disney+, for a whopping extra price of just under 22 euros. Somehow, the costs have to come back in.
From December 4th, subscribers will finally get to see the film on Disney+ at no extra cost. But as Disney has now confirmed, the usual route of films produced for cinema is already taking place a week earlier – with an evaluation on physical media.
MULAN ON DVD AND BLU-RAY
So if you haven't jumped on the streaming train anyway and still enjoy the benefits of physical media, you'll soon be served as well. "Mulan" will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K Blu-ray on November 26 - pre-orders are already possible.
The new "Mulan" on Amazon*
With a sales start just in time for The Christmas season, the film is likely to end up under many Christmas trees. Of course, you also know this with the shipping giant Amazon, which stirs the advertising drum for the pre-order launch of "Mulan" – and offers besides the film itself also a lot of merchandise such as figures, sweaters and more:

Blu-ray, 4K Blu-ray, and the new digital release will feature not only the main film but also a number of previously unreleased extras.

In addition to numerous clips about the villain impersonated by Jason Scott Lee, the music for the film, and the inspiration behind the remake, six additional scenes await you that didn't make it into the final film. As usual, however, they are not interwoven into the film, but as separate bonuses on board.
GOOD FILM - EVEN WITHOUT MUSHU
The retelling of the story of the brave Mulan (Yifei Liu), who goes to war in 5th century China in place of her old, sick father, stands out in some respects from the 1998 animated film of the same name – for example, the real-life film does not sing and dragon Mushu is not on board either.
And while some may see it as a point of criticism, the film has convinced us above all because it is also on its own legs away from the popular animated version. The conclusion of our 3.5-star critique of "Mulan" states:
"A quite rousing heroine epic with imposing (if somewhat succinct) martial arts inserts, which is good not to cling to the popular cartoon template too slavishly."
