The Live-Action 'Mulan' Reboot Finally Drops On Disney+ On Friday
Disney fans, the moment you've been waiting for has finally arrived: Mulan is here.
Yes, the live-action remake of the 1998 children's classic drops on Disney+ on Friday after the coronavirus pandemic forced distributors to skip its planned cinematic release.
More than 20 years after its original release, the legendary Chinese warrior has been brought back to life by acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro.
For those unfamiliar with the Disney classic, it follows a fearless young woman (the titular Mulan) who risks everything to become one of the greatest warriors her country has ever known.
When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father.
Disguised as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner strength and embrace her true potential.

It's then yours to watch however many times you want. Alternatively, you could wait until December when it will be streaming for free.
Mulan was originally expected to hit the big screen on 27th March, but was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The film, starring Liu Yifei, had a rumoured a $200 million (£159 million) budget, and if early reviews are anything to go by - it is going to be epic.
