DISNEY HAS DECIDED TO BRING ITS INCREDIBLY POPULAR FROZEN 2 TO ITS DISNEY+ STREAMING SERVICE THREE MONTHS EARLIER THAN PLANNED “SURPRISING FAMILIES WITH SOME FUN AND JOY DURING THIS CHALLENGING PERIOD” AS THE WHOLE WORLD FIGHTS THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
The Spanish Governvernment issued drastic measures on Friday in a bid to contain and slow down the spread of COVID-19, schools were ordered to shut until at least the end of March. The problem is now what to do with the kids! beaches are closed and sports events are cancelled. There is a glimmer of light though as Media Giant Disney has decided to release Frozen 2 much earlier than scheduled. This may not be a big deal to us adults but children of all ages across the world adore the characters from Frozen, they love the storylines and most of all, the music.
“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,” said Bob Chapek, Disney’s recently appointed CEO, in a press release.
Disney Plus subscribers will be able to stream Frozen 2 on the service from Sunday, March 15. Disney bosses said they wanted to provide families with a surprise as more people begin to self-isolate against the worldwide spread of coronavirus.
Bringing Frozen 2 to Disney Plus at a time when more people are working from home and schools are closing is also a chance for Disney to bolster additional subscribers. Other streaming services like Netflix and Hulu (also owned by Disney) are likely to see an increase in time spent watching titles as people stay indoors. Frozen 2, which grossed $1.4 billion globally, setting a new record for an animated film, is a highly anticipated title for the Disney Plus subscribers.
