The film had originally premiered in theatres on March 6, 2020, and had great reviews, but, as any Disney hero faces challenges, the global pandemic impacted movie theatres as they closed all over the nation. With the new guidelines in each state, Disney has risen above the rest and is offering the film ahead of schedule to purchase on digital platforms in the U.S. beginning today at 5:00pm PST /8:00pm EST for $19.99.
