As the coronavirus pandemic forces some of us to stay home, Disney has announced it is releasing the hugely popular Frozen 2 movie to streaming platform Disney+ three months early to surprise families with “some fun and joy during this challenging period”.

Aussies will be able to watch the second instalment of the family favourite film when it lands on Disney+ on Tuesday afternoon (March 17).

“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 of The Walt Disney Company.

The news comes at a useful time as several schools across the country temporarily close, while an increasing number of companies are starting to ask employees to work at home as a preventative measure in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The studio previously made an exception to bring the Avengers’ Endgame to Disney+ earlier than its planned release date to coincide with the launch of the subscription streaming service.

Disney is itself one of many studios to be impacted by coronavirus, with decisions to suspend productions and delay the theatrical release of some highly anticipated films like Mulan and New Mutants happening across the board.

What other movies are also available on Disney+?

Disney+ is home to a variety of movies and shows from much loved studios including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. From reliving original classics like Alice in Wonderland and 10 Things I Hate About You, to enjoying recent releases such as Captain Marvel and the live action of Aladdin, you can check out what movies and shows are on Disney+ if you happen to get stuck at home.
