As much as I wish this is a failure, the situation is a bit more complex then pure box office profit at this point. Because of Corona investors very likely already expected it to not do very well in box office and all the faith is deride from streaming.
However, the problem with streaming is that because all money goes directly to the service itself, there is almost no sure way to now how successful or unsuccessful a film is. You can't lie about numbers in theater's because a portion of the money goes to said theater and if a movie is a success or a snub you bet your ass they will tell the studios.
But if Disney has no responsibility beyond itself and it's investors, whose to say how much "profit" it has. At the end of day what's more important isn't actually profit but rather the illusion of profit so it's investors are motivated to keep the company afloat.Disney's goal isn't to make money, but to convince the people with actual money that they have money.>inb4 Disney wouldn't just lie like that
Yes, yeas they absolutely would.
So really the question isn't>Did Mulan make money
But rather>Are out of touch executives stupid enough to think it made money
