How to watch Mulan: stream the new live-action movie online right now
Anyone in countries that have access to Disney Plus – North America, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, most of mainland Europe and more – simply need to head to the Disney Plus website to sign up for the service.
Once you’ve done that, you can buy Mulan for $29.99/£19.99/AU$34.99 – roughly the same as a night out at the movies and infinitely more relaxing in these unprecedented times. The privilege of going to the toilet as many times as you like isn’t all you get for your subscription money, though – far from it.
As well as being the exclusive home of Mulan, there are loads of other reasons to check out Disney Plus – a fantastic (and fantastic value) streaming service with loads of great content. It features every Simpsons episode ever made, all your favorite Pixar flicks, the latest Marvel movies, and the complete Star Wars canon – all for just $6.99/£5.99/AU$8.99 a month.
It really is something of a bargain, considering how much you get – and how much of it can’t be found anywhere else. Better still, you can save 15% if you sign up for an annual subscription. If you’re in the US, for the ultimate value you can take advantage of a combined bundle that includes ESPN+, Hulu and Disney Plus for the outrageously cheap price of just $12.99 a month.
Mulan will eventually become part of the standard Disney Plus catalogue, but not until December 4, which is a hefty wait – whether you’re the Mulan fan in the house or are just trying to keep the kids quiet.
What is Disney Plus Premier Access and why should I care?
Premier Access is the latest addition to the already excellent Disney Plus streaming service. It’s launching offering the highly anticipated 2020 Mulan live-action remake to stream from Friday, September 4.
How it works is pretty straightforward. You need to be a Disney Plus subscriber to join the Premier Access party – with monthly subscriptions available for just $6.99/£5.99/AU$8.99 – after which you can watch Mulan for an additional fee.
Mulan will cost $29.99/£19.99/AU$34.99 to stream on its release date, which might seem like a lot, but is actually less than two cinema tickets when you think about it.
Plus, you get to watch Mulan from the comfort of your own home, meaning taking a bathroom break won’t incur any icy stares – and the popcorn’s considerably cheaper, too.
Perhaps best of all, you get to keep anything you buy through Premier Access and watch it as many times as you want for the duration of your Disney Plus subscription.
