Disney Exclusive Free Access to Mulan Educational Movie Resources

Long awaited would best be described as an understatement. With the very first movie trailer for the live-action version of Mulan, my family began counting the days until the premier. We were so close to the long-awaited date when life took an unimaginable turn of events. Following my son's ninth birthday in March, we planned to be at the movie theater a few weeks later for Mulan's opening date nationwide. Never could we have ever predicted the unprecedented changing state of the nation- of the entire world. With that being said, Coronavirus prevailed, disrupting the lives we knew, finding us all to be safer at home, with the exception of essential workers. Keeping us entertained, our Disney+ subscription came to the rescue. As both a Disney fan and supporter of the arts, I paid the price to be among the first  subscribers to "Unlock Premier Access" in order to stream the new movie, Mulan. Whether you have seen the live action version of Mulan or not, Disney has unlocked exclusive premier access to free Mulan educational movie resources created in partnership with Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment.
