Mulan's box office weekend was abysmal. Was this because of the general anti-hype around the movie or was it because of the limitations of skipping the theatrical release and going straight to streaming? I would personally say it was a mix of the two considering was charging $30 per 48 hour rental.

I think it was mostly the streaming thing, even with the anti-hype, I think it should have been able to break even. That ridiculous price scared people away who would have been happy to go to the cinema just out of curiosity. Add to that the fact that Disney+ isn't available worldwide. I hope this teaches streaming services to be less greedy and to stop ignoring the "less profitable" regions.

I think it was a mix but it also didn't help they got rid of some of the beloved characters and had some new potholes.

Disney was differently charging too high of a price, it is obvious no one want to pay the price.
When you can go directly to the movie and to see a screening for around $10 this price makes no sense.
Also when you raise the price this high it will cause more people to pirate the movie causing further future loss sales.

I don't the anti-hype has anything to do with it because the people who watch these movies watch them for their logo.
