What’s coming soon to Disney+ in September 2020?
Reading time: 3 mins
Disney’s Netflix rival is here, serving up Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar originals, along with a post-modern revamp of High School Musical and almost every episode of The Simpsons. Except, due to both the coronavirus pandemic and Disney’s newcomer status in the streaming game, a lot of that original new content is a while off yet.
That doesn’t mean the House of Mouse isn’t flexing its muscles, though, with September seeing the premiere of new live-action remake Mulan – with a controversial “Premium Access” twist that charges audiences a £19.99 surplus to get early access to the film.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Disney+ UK in September 2020:
Mulan – 4th September
Acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro brings the epic tale of China’s legendary warrior to life in Disney’s Mulan, in which a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. The film is available on Disney+ for an additional one-off fee of £19.99, which buys “Premier Access” to the film before it arrives on regular Disney+ in the future.
