As we are spending more time at home, movie studios are releasing movies earlier so we can enjoy them at home. Just yesterday Paramount Studios published the release dates of SONIC THE HEDGEHOG.
Early this week Disney released FROZEN 2 early to Disney+. And now they are also going to release ONWARD so you can also watch it at home.
Disney and Pixar’s ONWARD will be available to buy digitally and on Movies Anywhere NOW and on Disney+ on April 3rd in the U.S. So you have the decision to buy it to watch this weekend or wait 2 weeks and enjoy it on your Disney+ subscription.
The film premiered in theaters on March 6th and earned rave reviews from audiences, including a 95% Verified Audience Score on RottenTomatoes.
“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.
