Pixar's Newest Film 'Onward' Arriving on Digital Platforms in the U.S. Tonight, Streaming on Disney+ April 3

Disney and Pixar's new animated movie "Onward" is following the recent trend of movies arriving early on digital platforms amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting in the United States tonight, March 20 at 5 p.m. PT, "Onward" will be available to purchase on digital retail platforms like iTunes for $19.99 (via Variety).

Following this, the movie will be streaming for Disney+ subscribers beginning Friday, April 3. "Onward" was released in theaters two weeks ago, right as the coronavirus pandemic was beginning to spread across the United States.


Many studios are now releasing films early on digital, due to the fact that going to a movie theater is no longer feasible for most Americans. Beginning today, Universal films like "The Invisible Man," "The Hunt," and "Emma" are available to rent for $19.99 on iTunes and other platforms.

I know the studios are taking a hit because of theater closings, but dang! -- $20 to RENT a movie? It would only cost me half that much if I saw it in an actual theater!
Not those with a family. Some of us spend like 60-80 just on the movie with snacks. I welcome the $20 price point.

A great movie, in my opinion. A generally-safe assumption for any Pixar movie.

I will be buying this tonight to watch with my daughter. Anything to support this trend of breaking out of the old style, I'm all in on. Families with small children or lots of social responsibilities (elderly parents, volunteering, etc) have trouble getting to the theater and being home where you can pause, rewind, have their favorite snacks, etc. with kids is so helpful. Will be nice to not be perpetually 6 months behind the "movie conversation" if this trend continues. And I pray it does.

It would cost my kids and I three times as much to go to the theatre. I welcome a $20 rental with open arms. Hopefully this trend continues.
