With movie theaters shutting their doors all around the world, film studios have been turning to alternative options for getting their pics to people who are staying home amid the coronavirus pandemic. Disney+ has been particularly active in bringing more magic to those in quarantine, including making Pixar's new animated fantasy epic Onward available to Disney+ subscribers early, as of April 3. The film is one of several blockbusters to have its digital release moved up.
Onward stars Tom Holland and Chris Pratt as two elf brothers on a quest to find an artifact that would allow them to spend a day with their deceased father after a spell only brought back his legs. The heartwarming film was only in theaters for a couple of weeks before the shutdown, and it's not the only recent addition to the Disney+ catalog. Frozen II made its streaming debut three months earlier than planned, acting as a helpful distraction for kids stuck at home due to school closures and, honestly, people of all ages, too.
You can watch Onward on Disney+ with a subscription, but there are other ways to rent or own a digital copy on Amazon, Vudu, iTunes, Google Play, and more. Or, if getting yourself a physical copy is more your style, there are also some options to purchase it on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD below.
