In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Disney+ announced that Frozen 2 will be available to stream March 15, three months earlier than previously announced.
“‘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, in a statement.
Internationally, Frozen 2 will be available on Disney+ in Canada, the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand on March 17.
