Onward Moves Onward, Others Postponed

Disney has officially announced that Pixar’s ONWARD will be coming to Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand on Friday April 24. It will be available on digital platforms to purchase from April 3, which is the same day as ONWARD is released in the United States on Disney+.  The movie was originally going into Australia/New Zealand cinemas in on April 2, but obviously due to the Coronavirus emergency, ONWARD has gone straight to home video.

ONWARD is the story of teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot (voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) who get the amazing opportunity to spend one more day with their late dad, embarking on a quest aboard Barley’s van Guinevere.

“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,” said Dan Scanlon, the film’s director.

Meanwhile, the World War II drama GREYHOUND starring Tom Hanks, has been moved several times, and is now undated. PETER RABBIT 2: THE RUNAWAY won’t open in cinemas until January 15, 2021, instead of August 2020.

However, the Kevin Hart drama FATHERHOOD will now arrive on October 23 instead of January 15, 2021. Other studio tentpole pictures, such as MULAN, NO TIME TO DIE and A QUIET PLACE II have also been postponed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
