Disney Delays 'Mulan' due to Corona Virus Fears & Restrictions on Public Gatherings
Updated: Apr 3
Director Niki Caro gracefully took it to social media to speak on the matter:
'Dear Mulan Fans, Making this film has been one of the most satisfying and exhilarating experiences of my entire career, and I’ve been so fortunate to be on this journey with some of the best cast and crew in the business – people who truly embody the attributes of Loyal, Brave, and True. We are so excited to share this film with the world, but given the current ever-shifting circumstances we are all experiencing, unfortunately, we have to postpone the worldwide release of MULAN for now. Our hearts are with everyone the world over who is affected by this virus, and we hope that Mulan’s fighting spirit will continue to inspire those who are working so hard to keep us all safe. Thank you for all of your enthusiasm and support, and I can’t wait for the day where we will all get to experience this tale of a girl warrior who became a legend together #mulan #yifei_cc #loyalbravetrue With love, Niki Caro'
It's a very sad time for movie fans, ever since the COVID-19 breakout last year in December. It has spread causing a worldwide epidemic. Not only has our beloved Mulan had to cancel their Chinese premieres, the Studios as a result have to face a $5 Billion dollar loss and have now announced that the movie has been delayed until further notice,
Other movies to join the delay are “New Mutants” and “Antlers, “F9,” “A Quiet Place Part II,” “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” and “No Time to Die”
As more cases of the coronavirus crop up around the world, and more states and local governments begin to ban large gatherings, Hollywood studios have begun to push films’ release dates.
On a positive note, we were fortunate enough to watch the Mulan movie at the European premiere and can genuinely say it's going to be worth the wait and will need all your support!
