It seems like the world is falling apart and in these crazy times, we need as much happiness as we can get. Disney feels our pain and wants to help alleviate our stress and bring smiles to the faces of people young and old, so they’re bringing Frozen 2 to Disney+ three months ahead of schedule to do just that.
- It wasn’t supposed to be available on the streaming service until this summer. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait any longer to kick back with Elsa and Anna. Frozen 2 will be on Disney+ in the US on March 15 and will follow on the app in Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand two days later on March 17.
- This is the best news ever! Disney CEO Bob Chapek announced the good news in a statement released Saturday, saying, “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.”
- It’s not much but any little helps, I guess. Disney hopes that releasing Frozen 2 on Disney+ a bit early will give families “some fun and joy during this challenging period,” and it’s very likely it will. Sure, adults may not be able to completely forget their worries by watching a cartoon, but kids will be entertained for 90 minutes or so, and isn’t that its own kind of gift?
- If Frozen 2 isn’t your thing, Disney+ has plenty of other movies to watch. Just last week I watched the original Alice in Wonderland (my favorite!) and Beauty and the Beast, but pretty much every Disney movie or TV series ever made is available to stream on there, so go forth and live your best life (or at least try to forget about what’s happening outside for a little while).
