To stream Mulan 2020 online you’ll need a subscription to Disney Plus (£5.99/m). You’ll also need to make a one-off payment for Premier Access of £19.99 to gain access to the film.
Premier Access is Disney’s solution to recouping some of its budget as the film is skipping cinemas entirely. They see as different to a standard VOD rental or traditional purchase as once you’ve paid for Premier Access, you can watch the film as many times as you want.
Payment can be done through the Disney Plus website or an in-app purchase on Android, iOS and Roku devices. Once done, Mulan 2020 can be viewed on of your connected devices, which includes Sky Q. Sky Q users, however, won’t be able to purchase the film through their Q boxes or on Sky.

Mulan 2020 arrived on Disney+ on September 4th via the Premier Access service. To view the film, Disney Plus subscribers will need to pay an extra £19.99 on top of their current monthly or yearly sub to stream the adventure flick.
If you are interested in ‘purchasing’ the film, the Premier Access offer is only available up to November 2nd. After that, you’d need to wait until Mulan becomes ‘free’.
When will Mulan 2020 be ‘free’ for Disney+ subscribers?
If the thought of paying £19.99 doesn’t excite you, Mulan will be available as part of a normal Disney+ subscription on December 4th, 2020.
Mulan was meant to be released in cinemas all the way back in March 2020, but the closure of screens across the world meant that it was pushed back to August before that release date was eventually cancelled.
Mulan is the latest entry in Disney’s live-action remakes, which has seen Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King been re-imagined for modern-day audiences. Directed by Niki Caro, the remake features a cast that includes Yifei Liu in the main role; Donnie Yen, Tzi Ma, Jason Scott Lee, Gong Li and Jet Li. There’s also a nice cameo for fans of the original animation.
We’ve seen the film and thought it to be a decent effort that strikes a different tone to the animation. It’s one of the better western made Wuxia films to have come out of Hollywood in recent years (though that’s not saying a huge amount), but the film does lack the charm and engagement of the original, opting for a sincere, dry tone with less humour. While we weren’t expecting any songs from the animation to feature, there are a few nods to Jerry Goldsmith’s score and aside from some ‘curious’ looking visual effects, the production looks colourful and spectacular in places. However, fans of the original may not find a huge amount to engage with in this version of the film.
