Disney confirmed this week that its live-action Mulan has been approved to release in Chinese cinemas “soon,” making China the most significant territory where the film will receive a theatrical outing. It has not yet been granted an official release date in the Middle Kingdom.

After delaying the film’s release date four times already due to COVID-19, Disney announced last week that the remake of its 1998 animated classic would release in most major territories on its streaming service Disney+ for $29.99 starting Sept. 4. It also said it would release the film theatrically in territories where cinemas are open but Disney+ is not currently available.
