Before Disney Plus: Mulan's First Theatrical Reactions Praised the Film's Action, Maturity, and Beauty 2

It wasn’t suppose to happen like this.

Disney was originally slated to open Mulan in theaters on March 27 — the film was tracking to have the biggest domestic opening of 2020 — before the studio postponed it to July 24 and then August 21 before they finally decided to forego a theatrical release entirely in favor of a debut on Disney+ on September 4 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Back in March, those invited to cover the film’s L.A. press junket were allowed to share their reactions on social media to having seen director Niki Caro’s loose reimagining of the 1998 animated classic. At the time, we rounded up those generally positive social media reactions to this new Mulan, which you can find below (this article was originally published March 9).

Little did anyone realize at the time that these lucky members of the press corps would have an experience — seeing Mulan on the big screen in a theater full of people — that many around the world will now probably never have.

Let’s look back at what the media had to say about Mulan all those ages ago, back in March …

Members of the press were able to attend early screenings of Disney’s remake of Mulan, and first impressions are overly positive.

Many claim that while there is a bit changed from 1998’s Mulan, it more than makes up for it and may even be the best live-action adaptation of a Disney classic yet. Many claim it doesn’t even matter that this one isn’t a musical.

Mulan has great action scenes, a more mature tone, and is “surprisingly sexy for a Disney movie.”Here’s our roundup of the first social reactions to Mulan ahead of its theatrical release on March 27, 2020.

Fandango’s Erik Davis said Mulan is “exciting, vibrant, emotional, and different from the animated version.”

Geekbomb’s Maude Garrett loved the film, saying the “costumes & fighting/stunts were incredible.”
