On Thursday, Disney announced issues about the delay of “Mulan” The New Mutants” and “Antlers” out of “an abundance of caution,”
“As you know this has been a rapidly evolving situation and I wanted to make you aware that we are postponing the releases of ‘Mulan,’ ‘The New Mutants,’ and ‘Antlers’ out of an abundance of caution. We truly believe in the moviegoing experience, and we are looking at new potential 2020 release dates to be announced at a later date,”Disney said in a statement
“Mulan” was scheduled to be on the theaters on March 27 while “The New Mutants” and “Antlers” are set to premiere on April 4 and April 17, respectively.
Despite the coronavirus scare, “Mulan” is set to seek for $80 million opening weekend. It is supposed that this move comes after a wealth of theaters across China remain closed due to the spread of Covid-19, striking a massive blow to the country’s exhibition industry as the lockdown began at the start of the lucrative Lunar New Year period.
Not only “Mulan” and other Disney films, but a series of other flicks are also affected by the coronavirus concerns including Universal’s “F9,” which was canceled for a year. “A Quiet Place 2” and “The Lovebirds” were postponed to no time,” and “No Time to Die,” the latest Bond entry was delayed till November.
