This welcome surprise arrives amidst the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic that is impacting the world, an event that has even forced Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Disney California Adventure to close through the end of the month.“‘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,” said Bob Chapek, Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company.
Frozen 2 was made available digitally on February 11 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD on February 25. It was set to be released on Disney+ on June 26 before Disney made this move.
Frozen 2, which is the highest-grossing animated film ever at $1.4 billion, was also the sixth Disney film to cross the billion dollar milestone.
Every Delayed Movie Due to Coronavirus (So Far)
In our review of Frozen 2, we said it “is nothing if not ambitious, and like any big undertaking, that ambition comes with flaws. The beautiful world of Arendelle and beyond is a total joy to explore but a confusing subplot that can’t quite commit to its radical intentions takes away from the power and the message of the film.”
This is much needed good news amidst all the other delays and cancellations that are affecting the film and TV industry.
