The 2017 version of “Beauty And The Beast” was originally expected to come to Disney+ in the US on October 01, 2020. Disney has today updated the placeholder on Disney+ for the movie indicating that it will debut on Friday, August 21, 2020.
The exact reason as to why Disney is able to move forward the release date for this movie is unknown at this time. It would appear that Disney has been able to work something out with their existing contracts allowing the movie to be released much sooner than expected.
Belle, a village girl, embarks on a journey to save her father from a creature that has locked him in his dungeon. Eventually, she learns that the creature is an enchanted prince who has been cursed.
“Beauty And The Beast” is already available on Disney+ in most other countries.
