There’s been so much depressing news in recent days but since we’re all going to be stuck at home the next couple of weeks, here’s good news for the kiddos: “Frozen 2” will be available on Disney+ three months early starting Sunday, March 15.
Disney sent out a press release without citing the coronavirus because nobody actually needs to do so in this context, merely saying they are “surprising families with some fun and joy during this challenging period.”
The No. 1 animated film of all time, “Frozen 2” follows Elsa, together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, on a journey into the unknown to discover the source of her magical powers and save the kingdom of Arendelle.
The film, which came out in late November 2019, brought in $477 million domestically in theaters and more than $1.4 billion worldwide.
Despite a rich library of archival films, Disney+ is not pumping out original content quickly enough in the eyes of many so this move certainly can’t hurt their cause.
