Update 3/13/20 6:55 PM PT: Disney+ Just announced that Frozen 2 will hit the streaming service on Sunday, March 15th, which is almost three months ahead of the typical 3-month delay from home video release date to streaming.
With Disney Parks closing down around the world amid concerns of COVID-19, Disney+ subscribers will find it to be their safest avenue to explore the magical worlds of Disney. If you’re missing the parks, there’s a new episode of Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings that takes us to the parks and on a Disney Cruise. Batuu may be out of reach, but a new experience in a galaxy far, far away is here with a new episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. And fans looking for a behind-the-scenes look at what’s cooking at WDI should check out this week’s Shop Class where a guest Imagineer might reveal what they’re currently working on. Our Library Highlights section includes a list of ways to experience the parks on Disney+. There’s also a brand-new film this week and Stargirl couldn’t come at a more perfect time, a film that inspires viewers to spread joy and happiness to everyone you know. Whatever you choose to stream, we hope you have a happy and healthy week on Disney+.
