Disney’s release of the live-action Mulan on July 24 is in serious jeopardy as COVID-19 cases surge in a number of states across the U.S.
Hollywood is increasingly concerned that the late summer tentpole will have to give up its date and relocate to safer shores. It remains to be seen whether Warner Bros.’ fellow event pic Tenet will stick to its July 31 date.
Both movies need theaters in Los Angeles and New York City to be open, since they are the two largest moviegoing markets in the country. New York and L.A. are both a concern, however.
Mulan — which was originally set for a March 27 release before the coronavirus pandemic hit — is directed by Niki Caro and stars Liu Yifei as the legendary female warrior.
