[UPDATE]: via @brett_lemons comes the news that Disney will make it available for download for thirty bucks, which is a much better deal (if one I still wouldn’t take, because if I don’t have the physical item then I haven’t really bought it, and that should be worth a discount). Whether or not this was originally reported incorrectly is a conclusion I shall leave up to my readers.
Otherwise known as ‘ten bucks more than I’d seriously consider:’ “In a move surprising everyone except those of us who’ve been telling you it was coming for months, Disney announced today that their 2020 live action adaptation of Mulan will hit Disney+ on September 4th in a new category of content described as “premium service,” through which subscribers can view Mulan through the streaming site’s new VOD option. This will be simultaneous with limited international theatrical distribution.”
…Whether this works or not is gonna be interesting. Thirty bucks for MULAN live-action is more than I’d pay; heck, it’s more than I’d pay for BLACK WIDOW. At that price point, I’ll just buy the DVD and watch it on my computer screen. And I really, really want to see the spreadsheet that proves this is the minimum price Disney needs to make their investment back on their movies*.
PS: $12.99. Which they’d never, ever do, I know. But still.
*I recognize that bandwidth and stable servers cost money. Still.
