This year promised an excellent cinematic harvest: after the launch in the first quarter of titles such as ‘The Officer and the Spy,’ ‘1917’ and ‘Onward,’ everything came to a standstill. In 2020 we were going to be able to enjoy, among others, ‘A quiet place 2’, ‘No time to die,’ ‘Top Gun 2’ or ‘Dune.’
But moviegoers’ 2020 agendas are undoubtedly full of blots. The change in release dates has been a constant since the pandemic raged in spring, with films cancelled, postponed, or directly release through streaming platforms.
This has been Disney’s final decision regarding one of its great releases of the year, ‘Mulán,’ the ‘live-action’ adaptation of its 1998 classic. In the end, the company’s CEO, Bob Chapek, has announced that ‘Mulan’ will arrive directly on September 4 through Disney +.
The controversial part of the announcement is that Chapek has added that to be able to see the film will have to pay an additional price of $ 29.99 (about 25 euros). We do not know if the same measure will be applied in Spain and what the rate would be.
Amid the debate, Disney wanted to release a new one-minute trailer. A maximum action trailer to encourage fans to pay to see the grand premiere of the year. The Verge has reported that paying an extra $29.99 for the movie will mean having unlimited access to ‘Mulan’ and users can watch the movie as many times they want. But wait a minute, that’s how the subscription works right?
The subscription to Disney + is $6.99 per month and $69.99 per year; The company has just announced that it has reached 60.5 million subscribers, a record considering that it launched on March 24.
