Arab News - - &finally - Los An­ge­les

Dis­ney has de­layed the re­lease of “Mu­lan” again, this time un­til mid-Au­gust, as the coro­n­avirus pan­demic con­tin­ues to threaten block­busters that Hol­ly­wood hoped would bring au­di­ences back to the­aters after months of lock­down. “Mu­lan,” a mega-bud­get live ac­tion re­make of the tale of a leg­endary Chi­nese war­rior, had al­ready been de­layed once, to July 24. It will now launch on Au­gust 21, a state­ment from Dis­ney said Fri­day – though the com­pany warned of the need to be “flex­i­ble” in the process.

“While the pan­demic has changed our re­lease plans for ‘Mu­lan’ and we will con­tinue to be flex­i­ble as con­di­tions re­quire, it has not changed our be­lief in the power of this film and its mes­sage of hope and per­se­ver­ance,” said a state­ment from Walt

Dis­ney Studios co-chair­men Alan

Bergman and

Alan Horn.
