Frozen 2 is going to be available on Disney+ 3 months earlier to cheer up families in this challenging time!
The Coronavirus has affected the film industry a whole lot with films having to postpone their releases by months. Disney will be stopping the production of some of their upcoming films and postponing releases but don't worry, they got us covered in different ways. Due to the new pandemic, Disney will be dropping Frozen 2 on Disney+ three months early.
The ever-popular Disney animation Frozen 2 is set to hit the Disney+ streaming platform in the US tomorrow, March 15, and will be available on Disney+ in Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand on Tuesday, March 17.
The decision by Disney comes as a result of President Donald Trump declaring the Coronavirus pandemic a national emergency. Disney is hoping that adding Frozen 2 to Disney+ early will offer some ‘some fun and joy during this challenging period’.
Disney CEO Bob Chapek announced the news in a statement, saying:
Frozen 2 has captivated audiences around the world through its powerful themes of perseverance and the importance of family, messages that are incredibly relevant during this time, and we are pleased to be able to share this heartwarming story early with our Disney+ subscribers to enjoy at home on any device.
