Disney has a new July 2020 release date for the live-action remake of Mulan.
The next live-action remake from Disney was set to be a retelling of Mulan, which was originally scheduled to be released in theaters on March 27, 2020. However, the coronavirus pandemic began to escalate in North America by mid-March and Mulan became of the first films that were forced to delay its release due to the pandemic.
Initially, Disney did not set a new release date for Mulan and instead stated that it would look at new potential 2020 release dates to be announced later. Now, the company has scheduled Mulan to be released on July 24, 2020, the date previously held by Dwayne Johnson’s Jungle Cruise.
