It’s been a rough week and many of us are settling into some serious cozy hibernation. There’s plenty of great stuff to watch, games to play, and things to keep ourselves distracted and busy, but today Disney added another big one to the list. In a press release sent out this afternoon The Mouse House revealed that they would be putting Frozen 2 on Disney+ three months early, meaning people who have the streamer will be able to watch the blockbuster sequel from Sunday March 15th!
In the press release Bob Chapek, the newly announced Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company wrote.”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.”
It’s a smart idea that will not only please customers and families with little kids, but will also likely make Disney’s shareholders happy. The company closed down their massively popular theme parks all over the world.
Our very own Lindsey Romain called Frozen 2 “A mythic portrait Of feminine strength and vulnerability” in her review where she also wrote “Frozen 2 is about a lot of things. Colonialism and the silencing of indigenous cultures. Sisterhood and its powerful, unknowable reach. The quest for personal identity at whatever cosmetic cost. The nihilism that comes with growing older and more cosmically aware of life’s virtues and terrors. Does it marry these threads together elegantly? Not always. But it’s hard to deny the power of the storytelling—both visual and literal—in this entertaining Disney sequel. The film strikes many of the same chords as the first Frozen, but does so more gallantly this time around.”
You’ll be able to throw yourself into the world of Arendelle and the adventures of Anna and Elsa when the film hits the Disney+ streaming service beginning Sunday, March 15.
