[SUBS] Mulan - Free for All Disney+ Subscribers (Was $34.99 for Premier Access)

16614

Australia and China may not agree on a lot of things at the moment, but one thing we can agree on is that Mulan cost a truck load of money to make

As per the What Hi-Fi? site it’s now on general release for all Disney + Subscribers

https://www.whathifi.com/au/advice/mulan-hits-general-releas...

I cannot confirm the quality of the movie but I know that a lot of people have been waiting for it to fall under the normal Disney+ subscription

Enjoy, and don’t get too political 😂

    it was a joke that they asked for $35

      Cheaper than three movie tickets. I think that option was for the typical family that would have gone to see any Disney movie. And disabled people often love Disney, streaming it could have saved them an unnecessary trip to the cinema in a pandemic.

          I mean intellectually disabled people in group homes and out with their families often live to see Disney and other kids movies. A non intellectually disabled adult would probably have little interest in kids movies.

            @AustriaBargain: It's maybe concerning that you think family entertainment is so far beneath you that you think that any adult who enjoys those movies - which are often made for all ages - is likely to be intellectually disabled.

        The point is you are already paying a suBscription and some MBA (profanity) at Disney wanted you to pay even more on top.

        If Disney wanted to make some money more honestly it could have made it available for rent on iTunes, prime, bigpond etc. first.

          Don't know about other services but it definitely was available for rent on Amazon Prime for a while now.

            @airpoe: Of course. That is why they did it. But this kind of thing destroys the value proposition of streaming services eventually.
            When cableTV started in the US it was ad free. Then some MBA suggested they place ads for really popular shows. The rest is history.

          I'm always opened to being corrected but many people with disabilities actually prefer identity-first language over person-first language (e.g. "deaf person" rather than "person with hearing loss").

          While I empathise with the reasons for using person-first language (and would use it if someone expressed a preference for it), I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with using "disabled" as an adjective to describe someone who is exactly that. Just my two cents.

Because it was good had heart and soul and depth . Now it's just how to waste 2 hours without losing any brain cells

                        The head of the terrorist groups, Abu Emsha, said that Turkish officers would later ask the commanders of other terrorist groups to list the names of those who want to go to Kashmir.'

        'Turkestan Islamic Party is a militant Uyghur separatist group that has always focused its attentions on China. However, the group has recently increased its ties to al-Qaeda. Thus, the final days of February 2017 saw both ISIS and a group affiliated with al-Qaeda target China specifically. Given that both have carried out devastating terrorist attacks, it’s reasonable to say that Beijing needs to take the Islamists’ threats seriously.'

      "East Turkestan" was never a thing considering the land has always been controlled by China since.. Han Dynasty in 60 BC. The only time when it was anything was during a very short separatist period that lasted less than a year and mainly caused by Russian interference.

      Here's a list of "East Turkestan Movement's" terrorism for those who deny history:
