Disney and Pixar's "Onward" is heading to streaming early.
The animated film, which hit theaters on March 6, will be available to buy digitally starting Friday at 8PM ET. It'll premiere on Disney+, the company's new streaming service, on April 3.
"Onward's" early arrival comes after other studios like Universal Pictures announced that some of its films, which were currently in theaters, would be available to rent or buy early.
Disney itself moved "Frozen 2," one of its biggest titles from last year, to streaming early, so to capture the attention of families who are stuck at home as the coronavirus spreads through much of the world.
Studios have been grappling with theaters for years over how long a movie should be available in theaters before being offered on other platforms. However, the coronavirus pandemic has changed all of that.
