Many movie theaters are closed to help prevent the spread of the new coronavirus. This means families are looking for entertainment they can watch at home. To help, some movie studios have decided to make their movies available through on-demand and streaming services earlier than usual.
Jeff Shell is CEO of NBC Universal. “The company felt that now was the right time to provide this option in the home,” he said in a statement. Trolls World Tour is an NBC Universal film. It was scheduled to be released in theaters on April 10. Now it will be available to watch in homes on that day.
Here are a few movies that are available now or will be soon: Frozen II (March 24 on Disney+), Sonic the Hedgehog (March 31 on demand at various streaming services), Onward (April 3 on Disney+), Trolls World Tour (April 10 at various), and Abominable (April 24 on Hulu).
