In the last twenty four hours, massive developments have taken place in the coronavirus, or COVID-19, pandemic, including the announcement of the temporary closure of Disneyland.
We now know that Walt Disney Studios is taking serious steps and precautions with public health and safety in mind when it comes to their upcoming releases.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the live-action remake of Mulan, which was set to open in theaters on March 27, has been delayed. A new release date has not been announced at this time.
Despite the Los Angeles premiere of the film taking place this past week, the red carpet portion of the European premiere was cancelled out of precaution for the coronavirus. This is part of the growing trend of movie studios delaying the release of upcoming films.
The global pandemic is affecting Disney well beyond their studio productions. On Thursday, it was announced that the Disneyland Resort will be temporarily closing in response to the coronavirus. This now marks four Disney Parks worldwide to close, following Shanghai Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland, and the Tokyo Disney Resort.
