The long-awaited live action remake of Mulan finally landed on Disney Plus today, but after all that anticipation people all over Twitter aren't happy with the high price tag on the film.
The remake, which was meant to air in March, was delayed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. But after months of hype the film dropped on Disney Plus this morning on Disney Plus and cinemas (in areas where Disney Plus isn't available), but fans weren't happy to discover that the film costs $30 to watch, and that's on top of the cost of a Disney Plus subscription.
This isn't the first time this film has met with controversy, in March of this year, the film was criticised by LGBTQ+ fans, after producers announced that the character of Shang would be cut from the films.
Mulan is often thought of as the most bisexual of all the Disney films (though it's never officially addressed explicitly in the film). This is because Mulan and her love interest, Li Shang, appear to have a romantic connection when Shang thinks that Mulan is a man named Ping, before officially getting together once it's revealed that Mulan is actually a woman.
The recent controversy surrounding the price of the film has been met with a lot of criticism on Twitter, with viewers saying they would rather wait three months for the film to be available on the platform for free on 4th December.
