Disney's live-action Mulan pushed back to 2020
The live-action Mulan isn’t ready to get down to business just yet.
Fresh off the news that Disney has bumped the release of Avengers: Infinity War up by a week, the studio has also shuffled several other release dates. The live-action Mulan, which was previously scheduled to hit theaters Nov. 2, 2018, will now be released March 27, 2020.
Niki Caro (The Zookeeper’s Wife) is directing the live-action Mulan, based on the beloved 1998 animated film. In November, Disney announced that it had concluded an international search and cast Chinese actress Liu Yifei (also known as Crystal Liu) to play the titular female warrior.
Disney also staked out release dates for more than 20 untitled projects, stretching all the way through 2023. Not only did the studio set dates for several Pixar, live-action, and animated films, but it also lined up the next four years of Marvel movies: One untitled Marvel film previously scheduled for July 31, 2020, has now moved to Aug. 7, 2020, with six more films scheduled: May 7, 2021; July 30, 2021; Nov. 5, 2021; Feb. 18, 2022; May 6, 2022; and July 29, 2022.
Noelle (previously titled Nicole), a planned female Santa Claus movie starring Anna Kendrick, was also removed from the schedule and will now premiere on Disney’s new streaming service. It was previously dated for Nov. 8, 2019.
