We now know when Mulan will be free for everyone with a Disney Plus subscription, and it's not all that far off: more specifically, it arrives in December.

As mentioned in the small-print of the official Disney Plus page, Mulan will become available "to all Disney+ subscribers on 4th December 2020". That means you'll be able to watch the 2020 remake without paying anything extra this Holiday season (so long as you have a Disney Plus sign-up, anyway). 

It's good to finally have a solid date. Ever since Disney announced that the live-action Mulan would be available to buy via 'Premier Access', the same question kept cropping up: when would the movie be available for free with a Disney Plus subscription? Everything else Disney-related winds up on the service eventually, so it made sense that Mulan would as well. And considering the fact that anyone hoping to watch the film this September 4 needs to pay for a Disney Plus membership as well as a separate, one-off fee, the question has been on many peoples' minds.

So there we are. If you were on the fence about whether to invest in Premier Access, your only have to wait three months if you want to avoid the one-off fee ($29.99 in the US, £19.99 in the UK, and $34.99 in Australia or Canada).

If you do want to grab the film now, just be sure to move quickly. As explained on Disney's Premier Access help page, "the [Mulan] Premier Access offer will be available until 2nd November 2020 at 23:59 PT".

Because Disney has been open about this being an experiment, it'll be interesting to see how many people get Premier Access before Mulan becomes available for all Disney Plus users in December. Will this get in the way of some investing? And why is it vanishing after November 2, anyway? Is that a way of building hype before Mulan's return? We'll have to wait and see.

Once you're finished, you can also cancel Disney Plus - it doesn't have a contract. However, bear in mind that you'll lose access to Mulan until you sign up again (it's only available to those with an active Disney Plus membership).
