Today we will talk about How to Watch Disney+ digital release Mulan on Firestick and other Fire TV devices, including the Fire TV (Gen 3) and Fire TV Cube (Gen 1/Gen 2).
This year hasn’t been the best so far for sports and entertainment in general. Major sports events were not only postponed but also canceled entirely due to the troublesome effects of public gathering.
Filmings of several movies, TV shows, and web series were paused for months. Furthermore, theatrical releases of high-budget films were also delayed to a later date, only to get released on streaming platforms.
Although theatrical releases are proven to make more revenue, film production companies have no choice but to release their creations on streaming platforms for everyone to watch at home at such times.
Disney also recently announced that its live-action adaptation of Mulan would make its way directly to Disney’s flagship streaming service, Disney+, on 4th September.
However, Disney+ subscribers will have to pay an additional $29.99 to watch the movie on top of the existing $6.99 monthly subscription fee, similar to a pay-per-view model. Once purchased, the film will be available to watch as long as the regular Disney+ subscription is continued.
The additional fee is branded as “Premier Access,” and it can be purchased through all supported platforms, except Amazon Fire TV devices.
To learn how you can watch Disney’s Mulan on Firestick, please read on through this guide. We have included step-by-step instructions for inexperienced users.
Can I watch Disney’s Mulan on Firestick?
Yes, you will get to watch Disney’s Mulan on Firestick, if only you purchase the Premier Access from somewhere else. The main reason behind Disney+ not giving Fire TV users the option to buy the add-on is that Amazon wants a substantial amount of revenue for in-app purchases on the Fire TV version of Disney+ app.
Given that Mulan cost Disney $200 million to produce, they will likely need the most out of the Premier Access to make a marginal profit.
Disney has officially confirmed that Fire TV owners will be able to buy the $29.99 (in the United States) Premier Access for Mulan through disneyplus.com or other compatible platforms, including Android, iOS, and Roku. After that, they can log in with the same account to the Disney+ app on Fire TV and stream the movie.
Note that the pricing of the Disney+ Premier Access is subject to your region. Below is a list of a few countries with the international pricing of the add-on subscription:
- Canada: $34.99 (CAD)
- United Kingdom: £19.99
- Italy, Spain, & other European countries): €21.99 (approx.)
- Australia: $34.99 (AUD)
- New Zealand: $39.99 (NZ)
- India: Unconfirmed (Disney+ Hotstar)
In France, Mulan’s digital release will be available to watch for all Disney+ subscribers at no extra cost. However, the release date won’t be the same as in other countries.
