Disney To Go Ahead With Mulan Premiere Despite Coronavirus Outbreak
As the world continues to monitor the effects of the coronavirus outbreak in China, many industries are shutting down. However, as of going to print, Disney has decided that they will continue to move ahead with the release of live-action Mulan.
With the coronavirus having afflicted more than 30,000 people and resulted in 724 deaths in China, many areas are in lockdown and theaters have closed down.
In the wake of the outbreak, many studios are rethinking their plans to release films in the Chinese market. However, according to a recent report in Comicbook.com, it doesn’t look like Disney will be delaying the release of Mulan which was expected to perform quite well in China. The film is still slated for a March 27th release.
However, we’ll be keeping an eye on this story closely. If theaters in China haven’t reopened by the time that Mulan premieres then Disney may reconsider and opt to delay the entire release or hold the China release until things have calmed down.
With Mulan costing over $300 to make, Disney has a lot at stake when it comes to the success of the premiere. Keep following along with MickeyBlog for further news and updates on this story.
