It turns out that fears of COVID-19 are not a match for Mulan. The highly anticipated live-action remake of the beloved Disney animated film held its premiere in Hollywood last night, where the stars turned out in full force to celebrate the film. While extra security precautions were taken (hand sanitizer everywhere!) and handshakes were traded for elbow bumps, the theater was packed with folks eager to see Disney’s latest live-action remake.

And while several major studio releases like No Time to Die and My Spy have been postponed due to COVID-19, Mulan is still set to be released March 27th.
