Disney’s “Mulan,” potentially one of the biggest blockbusters of the year, has been delayed because of the coronavirus.
Disney announced it was moving the film’s release out of an abundance of caution. The film, a live-action remake of the beloved 1998 animated film about a Chinese female warrior, was set to debut in North America on March 27.
The company also said that it is moving the films “The New Mutants” and “Antlers,” which were set to hit theaters in North America on April 3 and April 17, respectively.
Disney (DIS) added that it is looking at new potential release dates for all three movies.
“Mulan” cost $200 million to make and was expected to make a big splash around the world, especially in China. The film tells the story of Mulan, a legendary fighter from ancient China who disguises herself as a man to take her elderly father’s place in the army and protect her country from invaders. The film has an international cast led by Yifei Liu.
