Disney has announced that the latest live-action adaptation of Mulan, and the animated classic will hit 4K Ultra HD next week!
Surprise, you’re getting a whole lot of Mulan next week, November 10th to be exact. Disney has announced the home entertainment release of Mulan (which released on Disney Plus a little bit ago after being pulled from theatrical release).
Being available on Disney Plus right now for the premium fee, though it’ll swap to the free version in December, it might seem like a hard sell for this release. For one, though, physical media is still worth supporting. Secondly, it’s also coming loaded with bonus features while Target’s version has a swanky art book:
