I bet they just wait it out until the movie theaters are back in business. I know they've moved some popular films to Disney+ very quickly lately (Frozen 2, Onward). But this is such a big, expensive movie with so much hype and controversy around it, it seems like they'll need to get it to theaters first.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Disney was banking on not only US box office for this, but China/Asia box office as well. They need a big international theatrical opening for this, and if I were them, I'd be game to wait a year to get that.
Onward is going to Disney+ already because it already had its theatrical opening even though a lot of people didn't go to the theatre.
And this is making me want to start a new thread to speculate on movie release dates.
I'm reallyyyy excited for the release of the movie! So sad it is postponed, but definitely understandable... In the meantime, I created a quiz in Mulan theme! Send me a message and I'll give you the link of the quiz!
