I’m more curious what the point is than the sketchy payment plan.

Mulan was created on a digital system and digital releases are directly transferred from that. A transfer from film adds more copying steps between the source and the final release.

Simple. To preserve how it looks on film.

You are right but, maybe they (we) want to watch the film the way it was projected in theaters when it premiered, that was a 35mm print from the digital CAPS source.

Prints are not made from the CAPS source. There is a digital film-out to negative, and prints are struck either from that negative or from a duplicate.
