Mulan, Disney’s live-action version of its 1998 animated movie, is the latest Hollywood blockbuster to be postponed as the coronavirus pandemic wreaks havoc on the entertainment industry.
Disney also confirmed that the release of the movies The New Mutants and Antlers will also be postponed.
Part of a statement from Disney is below –
As you know this has been a rapidly evolving situation and we wanted to make you aware that we are postponing the releases of MULAN, THE NEW MUTANTS and ANTLERS out of abundance of caution. Media preview screenings will be rescheduled once we have a new release date.
Director Niki Caro announced via Instagram late Thursday that Mulan will not roll out globally later this month as originally scheduled.
“We are so excited to share this film with the world, but given the current ever-shifting circumstances we are all experiencing, unfortunately, we have to postpone the worldwide release of Mulan for now,” Caro wrote. “Our hearts are with everyone the world over who is affected by this virus, and we hope that Mulan’s fighting spirit will continue to inspire those who are working so hard to keep us all safe.”
