Disney fans were pretty frustrated to discover even more movies would be delayed – including Mulan. The live-action movie of the 1990s cartoon has been long-awaited, though some controversial changes to the original have divided some fans. But now fans will have to wait indefinitely to see it on the big screen, will it be available to view online?
Can you watch Mulan online and is it legal?
Mulan has been postponed with no new release date shared, meaning it could be a long while before fans can watch it on the big screen.
However, a new ray of light has dawned as fans will be able to stream the film online via Disney+.
The film will cost £19.99 to download through a premier access download, which will then see the film saved to your Disney Plus account for you to watch as many times over after that.

Other than Disney+ and other affiliated websits, which includes Roku, Apple and Google Play, any website claiming to have the film for streaming or download is illegal.
The Digital Economy Act 2017 means people could now be handed down a 10-year prison sentences for illegally streaming copyrighted content.
To be sure you’re not watching copyrighted material, you should used legimate streaming services such as Netflix or Amazon Prime, according to Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT).
Not only is it illegal to stream films on illegal sites, but it could also be a danger to your computer.
To add further warning, CEO of FACT Kieron Sharp said: “There are now more ways than ever for consumers to watch movies and TV but not going to legitimate sources to watch new movies is not a grey area: it is against the law.
“As well as being illegal, evidence shows that streaming pirated content is incredibly risky and can expose users to malware and inappropriate content.
“Not only does that deny the best viewing experience, it’s just not worth taking the chance.”
While many who are forced to stay in may want to watch the film online or through other mans, sadly fans will have to wait until the film has had its cinematic release.
Which film releases have been postponed because of coronavirus?
Other than Mulan, Disney announced it would be postponing the release of The New Mutants and Antlers because of “an abundance of caution.”
Fans do now have the chance to watch The New Mutants, however, which was quietly released at the end of August.
However, the first movie which gained people’s attention for being postponed was the new James Bond movie No Time to Die which will now be released in November rather than April.
A Quiet Place Part II, the second instalment of the new horror franchise, has been delayed indefinitely from its March release date.
The film’s director John Krasinski posted on Twitter: “One of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said our movie is one you have to see all together.
“Well due to the ever-changing circumstances of what’s going on in the world around us, now is clearly not the right time to do that.
“As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see this movie … I’m gonna wait to release the film till we CAN see it all together! So here’s to our group movie date! See you soon!”
As well as this, Fast and Furious 9, which was trailed at the Superbowl, has also been delayed for 11 months, and will be released on April 2, 2021.
Other than releases, production on the new Baz Luhrmann Elvis biopic stopped after one of its stars Tom Hanks contracted the virus alongside his wife Rita Wilson.
With the coronavirus situation still developing, it is likely more film releases and productions will be halted due to the pandemic.
Mulan will be available on Disney Plus via premier access on September 4
