In other news, Disney announced that their live-action remake of “Mulan” will bypass theaters and instead debut on their streaming service, Disney+. The film will be available to subscribers on September 4th and will cost an additional $29.99 on top of the monthly subscription fee. The move to release the film directly to streaming comes as theaters remain closed in many parts of the world due to the pandemic.

Moving onto the world of music, it was announced that the iconic rock band Van Halen is releasing a new box set in October. The set, titled “The Japanese Singles 1978-1984,” will feature 13 replica 7-inch vinyl singles in their original sleeves and will include hits like “Jump,” “Running with the Devil,” and “Dance the Night Away.”
