“Mulan” is heading to Disney Plus, but you’ll need to pay extra to watch it.

On Tuesday, Disney CEO Bob Chapek announced the live-action version of the 1998 animated film will head to Disney Plus in many countries, including the US, on September 4.

“In order to meet the needs of consumers during this unpredictable period, we thought it was important to find alternative ways to bring this exceptional family-friendly film to them in a timely manner,” said Chapek.

“We are announcing today that in most Disney Plus markets, including the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and a number of countries in Western Europe, we will be offering Disney Plus subscribers the epic adventure ‘Mulan’ on a premiere access basis beginning September 4,” he added.

In addition to a Disney Plus subscription, you’ll need to pay $29.99 to watch “Mulan” in the US. According to Chapek, the price will vary slightly in other countries.

A representative for Disney Plus confirmed to Insider the $29.99 is not a one-time rental charge. Disney Plus subscribers “will have continuous access to the film for as long as they remain subscribers to the service.”

Chapek said the film will simultaneously be released in certain markets where Disney Plus isn’t available and where theaters are open.

“We see this as an opportunity to bring this incredible film to a broad audience currently unable to go to movie theaters, while also further enhancing the value and attractiveness of the Disney Plus subscription with this great content,” said Chapek.

Since the coronavirus pandemic, “Mulan” has been delayed a few times. Most recently, the film, directed by Niki Caro and starring Yifei Liu, was set for an August 21 release.

Tuesday, Disney reported a $4.7 billion loss in its third quarter, led by a $3.5 billion loss from the closure of its parks.

Don’t expect to see more theatrical releases wind up on Disney Plus under a POV option right away. During the question and answer portion of the earning call, Chapek said “Mulan” is a one-off and that Disney is not looking at a new business model.

“That said, we find it very interesting to be able to take a new offering to consumers at that $29.99 price and learn from it and see what happens not only in terms of the uptick of the number of subscribers we got on the platform, but also the number of transactions we get on that PVOD offering,” said Chapek.

So “Black Widow” may not wind up on the streamer just yet. Currently, that film is set for a November 6 release.

“Mulan” also stars Donnie Yen and Jet Li. You can view the full cast here.

A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the $29.99 price would be to rent the film.

SIDNEY CROSBY – PRICE UNKNOWN, NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA

Currently playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby has gone above and beyond most people with his ultimate dedication for his hockey career. He’s one of the best hockey players around which can be proven by the fact that even Mark Madden, famed sports reporter, said that he wouldn’t let his team lose to the Islanders in the upcoming match.

His massive salary of $10 million per year more than justifies the reason behind the purchase of his amazing house in Nova Scotia, Canada. Although the house could have been far more luxurious, Sidney prefers the simple life and hasn’t gone out of his way to be extravagant. We’re pretty happy that he’s saving up on his money since he’s making a great investment in his own future as well as that of his children and family.
