The Mulan live-action remake releases this Friday, September 4 on Disney+, but this isn’t a traditional release like we’ve seen with other movies on the service like Onward, Hamilton, and Frozen 2. Instead, simply having a Disney+ subscription won’t get you access–at least not immediately. If you’re interested in watching Mulan this weekend on the couch with your loved ones, here’s what you need to know.
Mulan has a $30 Premier Access price at release
The only way to watch Mulan at release is to pay $30 for “Premier Access” on Disney+. You can watch Mulan in UHD, HDR, and with Dolby Audio enabled. Mulan is the first movie to fall into this category on Disney+, and Disney has said that it doesn’t have plans to lock future movies behind a paywall at this time.
Of course, this price is on top of the price of your Disney+ subscription ($7 per month). Disney+ doesn’t currently have a free trial, so you will have to pay for at least a month to watch Mulan if you aren’t already a subscriber. This would essentially raise your cost to $37 if you’re only interested in Disney+ due to Mulan.
