Disney has announced that the film Onward will be available for digital download on Friday, March 20 and will stream on Disney Plus starting April 3. The Pixar movie hit theaters just two weeks ago on March 6 but due to current circumstances, theaters have closed across the country.
More movies are seeing updated release dates for digital download and streaming services to accomodate the current situation and orders for social distancing. Disney previously moved the streaming release date of Frozen 2 and other upcoming films, such as Disney’s Mulan, have been delayed for theater release.
“While we’re looking forward to audiences enjoying our films on the big screen again soon, given the current circumstances, we are pleased to release this fun, adventurous film to digital platforms early for audiences to enjoy from the comfort of their homes,” said director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae in a press release.
Onward is available tonight at 5:00 p.m PDT/8:00 p.m. EDT.
