But the circumstances, with a spike in contagion in the United States and the inability to open normally theaters in Europe and Asia, led to indefinitely postponing the launch to find a way to get a return on investment.

On Tuesday, during a presentation of financial results, those responsible confirmed that the blockbuster will reach televisions directly through its platform with an extra charge of $ 29 dollars in the United States. The rest of the markets must specify their conditions.

This film is a new version of the animation classic with actors and real scenarios directed by the filmmaker Niki Caro, which has had one of the largest budgets from the Mickey Mouse factory for the re-adaptations of classics following the strategy already applied with "The Lion King", "Aladdin" and "Dumbo".

Along with "Mulan", Hollywood was also following with absolute attention the release of "Tenet", the new film by Christopher Nolan, since they were going to be the first major blockbusters to land in theaters after the closing.

While Disney will take its project to the Disney + catalog, Warner Bros. Studios has devised a staggered premiere since August 26 in cinemas in Spain, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Russia and the United Kingdom. , countries where the rooms have opened.

However, in the United States, the most important market, it is not clear how the premiere will be managed.

The economic challenge for the film industry is twofold: On the one hand, the absence of titles on the billboard prevents the few open movie theaters from recovering the public, but, on the other hand, the restriction of capacity and uncertainty could mean that the films generate losses to the studios if they manage to reach the premises.
