I don’t disagree. Disney would have loved to have broken even on Mulan, I’m sure. Soul as well. But that’s not how to run a successful movie studio. The price of the movie will be the same if they wait closer to their theatrical release date. Selling it for break-even when the draw to see Bond isn’t going to suddenly go away in 6 months would be irresponsible. If theaters are gone, or still closed in certain states/operating at a low capacity in March, then you sell it. But selling it now for 600M when your plan as of 2 weeks ago was a theatrical release and gross 1B+ Would be a very regrettable mistake especially for a studio that doesn’t produce anything else near the level as the Bond franchise.
Edit: According to Variety the price tag from MGM to streaming platforms is 600M in which Netflix and Apple said it’s too expensive. So they’re looking to shop at the bargain bins.
