'Mulan': The Countries Where the Disney+ Movie Will Be Released in Theaters

Mulan is finally being released on Friday, September 4, but a lot of viewers will not be able to watch the movie in theaters. In a number of major territories, including the U.S., the United Kingdom and Australia, the live-action remake will bypass cinemas and air exclusively on Disney+ as a premium add-on costing around $30.

Some countries, however, will be able to watch Mulan in theaters this fall.

One of the biggest territories, for example, that will soon be able to see the movie in their local multiplex is China. This was announced on Mulan's page of Chinese social media app Weibo, which read (per Variety): "When the magnolia blossom opens, it lives up to its reputation and arrives as promised. [Mulan's] import is confirmed and it will soon burst into bloom in theaters; looking forward to meeting you!"

Then, the Chinese release date was announced as Friday, September 11. A number of other Asian release dates have also been confirmed for Mulan. The movie is coming to cinemas in Singapore and Malaysia, for example, on Friday, September 4, the same day it is released on Disney+ in other countries.

Asia, however, is not the only continent where Mulan will get a cinematic release. Per Variety, the movie will also come to theaters in countries that do not have Disney+ but do have cinemas that have reopened.
