Something’s About to Change: Disney’s ‘Frozen 2’ Joins the Disney+ Streaming Library This Sunday

Disney Parks may be closed for the next few weeks, (due to the surge of coronavirus cases in the United States.) But that’s okay. Now, Disney fans can hang out with Elsa, Anna, Sven, and Olaf from the comfort of their own homes. Disney’s Frozen 2 premieres on Disney+ earlier than expected, on Sunday, March 15, 2020.

Disney+ includes original movies and theatrical releases from 2019

You may be looking for a distraction while working from home or looking for a way to keep to kids occupied while they’re off from school. Even though Disney Parks may be closed, Disney+ still has you covered.

With this streaming platform, subscribers have access to thousands of hours of content, released by Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. This streaming platform even includes movies recently released in theaters during 2019.

Disney’s live-action Aladdin, photo-real adaptation of The Lion King, and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 debuted a few months after their cinematic runs. Now, Disney’s Academy Award-nominated sequel starring Anna, Elsa, and Olaf will be available for binge-watching on Disney+.

Disney’s ‘Frozen 2’ joins the Disney+ streaming library earlier than expected, on March 15

According to the library, Frozen 2 was originally set for a June 26 debut on Disney+ because of “existing agreements.” However, in light of current events, this animated sequel joins the Disney+ library on March 15, 2020. This comes only weeks after Frozen 2 was available for purchase digitally and physically.

Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, and Jonathan Groff return to Arendelle to reprise their roles as Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and Kristoff, respectively. This time, they have to journey into an enchanted forest and protect their kingdom from an unknown threat. You could even say they’re traveling “into the unknown.”

According to Deadline, New Disney CEO, Bob Chapek, stated the company was pleased to share the film earlier, saying, “the themes of perseverance and the importance of family are 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.”

The Frozen fun doesn’t stop there. Fans can also watch the original Academy award-winning movie on this streaming platform. There’s the short film, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, which originally debuted during 2017. Fans can also watch the first season of the LEGO series, Disney Frozen: Northern Lights.

Once Disney broke the news of their upcoming release, some fans took to social media sharing their thoughts. One Twitter user said, “Good morning! So not only is Frozen 2 coming to [Disney+] tomorrow. The Rise of Skywalker dropped on digital. I am a very happy Jedi today.”

“PSA Disney+ is releasing Frozen 2 three months early this Sunday to give people something to smile about during this mess of a time,” another Twitter user wrote.

Frozen 2 premieres on Disney+ on March 15, 2020. To learn more about this streaming platform and to subscribe, visit their website.
