If theater closures had you miss the premiere of Disney/Pixar’s Onward, don’t fret. The mega media giant is planning to release the film on Disney Digital for purchase today at 5:00pm PST for $19.99 via Movies Anywhere. The film will then go to Disney+ early on April 3rd, 2020.
Listen, Things are crazy, and even Disney realizes that your kids are stuck inside all day with this stuff.
Here’s what their PR Blast had to say:
“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 Dan Scanlon (Director, “Onward”) and Kori Rae (Producer, “Onward”).
In “Onward,” teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot (voices of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) get an unexpected opportunity to spend one more day with their late dad, embarking on an extraordinary quest aboard Barley’s epic van Guinevere. Like any good quest, their journey is filled with magic spells, cryptic maps, impossible obstacles and unimaginable discoveries. But when the boys’ fearless mom Laurel (voice of Julia Louis-Dreyfus) realizes her sons are missing, she teams up with a part-lion, part-bat, part-scorpion, former warrior – aka The Manticore (voice of Octavia Spencer) – and heads off to find them. Perilous curses aside, this one magical day could mean more than any of them ever dreamed.
We look forward to the sweet sweet voices of Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Octavia Spencer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
