Disney has revealed the price Irish users of their Disney+ streaming platform will have to pay in order to watch the upcoming Mulan movie on its release.
The studio previously revealed that following the closure of cinemas across the globe it would allow users to stream the new release from the comfort of their own homes instead of waiting for cinemas to re-open. Variety previously reported that users would have to pay an additional $29.99 on top of their $6.99 monthly subscription to the service in order to watch the new release.
That would have put the price of the movie at €25.38 (which is a bit steep, if you ask me). However Disney have today confirmed that users in Ireland will only have to pay €21.99 ($25.97) on top of their monthly subscription. That's almost $5 cheaper than what US users will have to pay.
The legend arrives. Stream Disney’s #Mulan on September 4th. Exclusively available to Disney+ subscribers with Premier Access for €21.99. For more info go to https://t.co/2V7nyYATWw pic.twitter.com/2ThSEzoUQb

More Expensive Than The Cinema
The cost of watching the movie on Disney+ is still higher than what you would most likely have to pay to watch it in the cinema. For example Odeon Cinemas would charge €24.75 for two adults and two children on a basic 2D screening. Whereas if you were to get the movie through the streaming service you will end up paying €28.98.
That said, getting the movie through Disney+ also comes with the benefit of being able to watch the movie for as long as you keep your Disney+ subscription. If you are someone who likes to watch movies more than once this could be a good choice for you.
Mulan will premiere on Disney+ on September 4 and you can check out the trailer for it below.
