Thanksgiving Week just got a lot more grim at the box office as Disney on Thursday moved its bit Pixar movie Soul to Disney+, where it will now be released on December 25. It had been set for a November 20 release in domestic theaters.
The move is similar to what Disney did with Mulan, which had been set for a global release in March before the coronavirus pandemic lockdown forced it to delay its theatrical release several times. It finally was released on Disney+ on September 4 in the U.S., UK, Canada, Australia and the major European markets where the streamer is available.
The Soul release date move was expected following the departure of MGM’s No Time to Die from that same November day.
