With all the news of movie release delays amid the coronavirus pandemic, Disney just became the first company to offer the opposite.
Disney+ will make Frozen 2 available this weekend, three months earlier than planned, due to “these challenging times,” according to a press release. U.S. users will be able to watch the hit movie on streaming Sunday March 15; it will be available in Canada, the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand on March 17.
“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,” according to Bob Chapek, Bob Iger’s replacement as CEO of The Walt Disney Company. “We are pleased to be able to share this heartwarming story early with our Disney+ subscribers to enjoy at home on any device.”
The move may not completely shake our coronavirus-fueled anxieties, but maybe for a couple hours we can just let it go. (Sorry.)
