Disney‘s release schedule is once again in a fritz amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The studio has taken off the highly anticipated, live-action Mulan from the schedule. Numbers of COVID-19 cases continue to surge in the U.S. market, and new outbreaks are disrupting foreign markets as well.
Mulan was set for an August 21 release date. A new release date has not been announced.
A spokesperson from Walt Disney Studios said in a recent statement: “Over the last few months, it’s become clear that nothing can be set in stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis, and today that means pausing our release plans for Mulan as we assess how we can most effectively bring this film to audiences around the world.”
