Mulan will be released to all Disney+ subscribers at no extra charge on December 4, three months after it begins its run at $30 exclusively through the streaming service.
Instead of labeling it a premium video on demand (PVOD) release, Disney created a new category for the $200 million tentpole: Premier Access. Any Disney+ subscriber will be able to see the film through the streaming platform if they pay $30 when it goes live Friday in the U.S. and other territories with Disney+.
