Disney’s digital/packaged media retail release of the live-action Mulan finished atop the U.K. weekly Official Film Chart through Nov. 18. The title, the studio’s first PVOD experiment, is one of the few new releases in 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Indeed, Disney had no home entertainment releases in its most recent fiscal quarter.
Mulan stars Yifei Liu as the eponymous character, who disguises herself as a male soldier in order to save her ailing father from being conscripted.
The previous week’s No. 1, Last Christmas dropped to No. 2 and is the first of several Christmas entries on the Nov. 18 chart. Comedy Elf climbed 12 places to No. 3, and the 2018 animated The Grinch re-entered the chart at No. 9. Further down the Top 20, The Polar Express (No. 15) and Love Actually (No. 16) returned as viewers gear up for the festive season.
Entertainment One’s 1917 returned to the Top 10, climbing nine places to No. 4, while Disney’s Frozen II dropped to No. 5. Star Wars: The Force Awakens entered the Top 10 at No. 6 following a new 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc re-release, as Onward dropped to No. 7.
Universal’s Dolittle, starring Robert Downey Jr., zoomed up 25 places to No. 8, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker rounded off the chart at No. 10.
