In a savvy and helpful move, Frozen 2 will hit Disney+ a full three months earlier than expected.
The beloved sequel to Frozen wasn’t slated to be on the streaming service until later this summer, but, now that coronavirus has left so many families stuck at home, it looks like Disney has decided to cut families a break.
