E.322 Trader Sam from the Jungle Cruise



Trader Sam appears at the very end of the Jungle Cruise attraction, holding a shrunken head aloft in his hand. A “Head Salesman”, the Skipper comments that he’s offering a special deal: “Two of his heads for one of yours”. During the ’80s and ’90s, the Trader Sam figure wore a colorful tribal mask, though this was removed in 2005 during the refresh of the attraction.

E.318 Mulan Coming to Disney Plus at a Price



In another major blow to movie theaters, Disney announced “Mulan” will forgo its planned theatrical release. Instead, the live-action remake is premiering on Disney Plus on Sept. 4 for a premium rental price.

The company believes that the release of the action epic will help drive subscribers while serving as a valuable test case to determine how much of their hard-earned cash customers are willing to part with in order to watch a movie that was originally intended to debut exclusively in cinemas.

Unlike the rest of the content available on Disney Plus, “Mulan” won’t be available directly to subscribers. Consumers in the U.S. and other territories will have to pay $29.99 to rent the movie on top of the streaming service’s monthly subscription fee of $6.99. In markets where Disney Plus isn’t available, “Mulan” will play in cinemas.
