Rumor: Is New Mutants Streaming on Disney+ September 4th?

The New Mutants

Following the indefinite delay of Tenet yesterday, people are wondering what’s going to happen with New Mutants and Mulan. Well now it looks like New Mutants may be headed to Disney+, and it means the movie has another release date.

A user on Reddit captured a trailer for New Mutants on Disney+ claiming that the movie would be streaming on September 4th. The trailer could possibly be fake, so we’ll have to wait and see, but if it is a fake it’s done very well. It looks like the Disney+ promos, and it makes sense for them to finally release New Mutants if theaters are going to remain closed for a long time.

The trailer is similar to this TV spot, however it’s edited differently and includes some shots that weren’t in other trailers; including a new angle of the infra-red image of Danielle Moonstar on a monitor. A version of that shot was in a previous trailer, but this one is at a different angle. The trailer appears to be from Australia, and it’s not uncommon for things like this to leak internationally.

People have speculated that the New Mutants panel at SDCC@Home on Thursday could announce a streaming date as opposed to its original August 28th theatrical release.
