Despite the threat of coronavirus, Disney shows no sign of stopping. The Disney movie “Mulan” is set to hit the theatres this March, and everyone’s expecting it to be a huge hit. This is a live-action remake and may earn up to $85 million according to the estimates.
Some also predict that the earnings may go as high as $90 million. It will be close to the Disney reboot of Aladdin last summer, which earned almost $91 million in its opening weekend.
The movie has a budget of $200 million, so it has to do well to turn profits. Chinese actress Liu Yifei stars as the central character in the movie. The movie is about a strong female lead who poses as a man, a warrior to save her old father from going to the army.
The film was supposed to speak to Chinese audiences. However, with the deadly threat of the corona virus, it is hard to get the audience.
The James Bond movie “No time to die” has been postponed to November because of an insufficient audience in China. It is so because the theatres in China are closed because of the virus. Without the backing of the Chinese theatres, it is to be seen what wonders Mulan can do.
Theatres in the US are open and aren’t under any threat of coronavirus yet. That will lead to a full house in most of the theatres. Mulan is one of the first Disney movies to be rated PG-13 because it isn’t suitable for kids. It has some elements of violence in it because it is a movie based on a warrior.
