Disney CANCELS ‘Mulan,’ ‘The New Mutants’ and More Film Releases Due to Coronavirus

And the coronavirus news just keeps getting worse and worse for Disney. In addition to closing Disneyland on March 14, Disney has just pulled several key movie releases from its schedule.

From Collider

Out of an abundance of caution, Disney has canceled its release plans for Mulan (March 27), The New Mutants (April 3) and Scott Cooper‘s horror movie Antlers (April 17) in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the studio announced Thursday. Unlike No Time to Die and F9, it’s unclear when any of them will hit theaters, though the studio is reportedly exploring release dates later this year.

Yikes! Mulan was one of the few tentpoles Disney had slated for this year, and though controversial, it would’ve provided a much needed financial boost to the company. Disney stock has been in freefall for the past several days now, reeling from the impact of coronavirus.

Collider also adds “Mulan is one of the most expensive movies in Disney’s history, so it will necessitate a theatrical release down the line, but there is an argument to be made that the studio should consider releasing The New Mutants on Disney+ right now, given the number of sign-ups that could encourage.”

Could Disney release some of its planned theatrical releases to Disney Plus due to coronavirus? Would it have a long lasting negative impact on movie theaters?
