If you're a Disney+ fan you're in for a big treat this weekend. Pixar's movie Onward was released in theaters March 6, but it's available today (April 3) on Disney+ and it's the exact motivation we need to sign up for the Disney Plus free trial and have a little fun this weekend.
The fantasy film, starring Chris Pratt and Tom Holland, tells the story of two teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot who are given the chance to spend time with their late father, but they soon discover a journey loaded with magic spells, cryptic maps and seemingly impossible obstacles.
Because of COVID-19, movie theaters are shut down indefinitely, which means streaming services are showing hit releases sooner than ever before, which is great for mamas in desperate need of finding ways to entertain little ones.
"While we're looking forward to audiences enjoying our films on the big screen again soon, given the current circumstances, we are pleased to release this fun, adventurous film to digital platforms early for audiences to enjoy from the comfort of their homes," Onward director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae said in a statement.
