Disney Still Pushing Through With Mulan China Release Despite Coronavirus Outbreak

There is little doubt that people in China are already taking necessary precautions due to the Coronavirus outbreak in the country. However, it looks like Disney simply isn't bothered by such things. The House of Mouse is still pushing forward with the release of Mulan in China.

The report from Comicbook.com confirms that Disney is still hoping to release Mulan in China next month. After all, the studio is already hoping that the live-action take on the 1998 film will be a huge hit in the country.

There's just one problem that Disney is facing right now. The recent outbreak of the Coronavirus in Wuhan, China has forced moviehouses in the country to close down in an effort to prevent further spreading of the disease. Unfortunately, this means that there will not be any theaters open for the movie's release.

For now, it is still unclear how long the outbreak will be a problem in China. In the meantime, Disney is keeping Mulan's March release date until further notice.

The synopsis for Mulan reads as follows:

"When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Chinese Army to defend the country from Huns, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. She is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. Disguised as a man by the name of Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her innermost strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father."

Mulan is scheduled for release on March 27.
