Last month, Disney announced that “Finding Michael” would release on Disney on Friday, March 3, 2023, in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia and other regions; however, the documentary was noticeably missing on the streaming service today and has been delayed. A new release date has not been announced yet.
It’s unknown why the documentary has been delayed despite being heavily promoted by Disney. There has been some rumblings that the delay is due to some last minute edits that needed to be made, but this remains unconfirmed.
Update: Disney has released a brief statement on the delay.
You can watch the trailer below:
In 1999, Michael Matthews became the youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest. But three hours after he summited, he disappeared and was never found. Aged just 10 when Michael went missing, his brother, entrepreneur and broadcaster Spencer Matthews, always struggled to accept his death. Over 20 years later, Spencer receives a photo of a body on the mountain that could be Michael. He heads to Nepal and recruits Nims Purja, the world ’14 peaks’ record holder, to lead a team and search Everest’s ‘Death Zone’ to try to find Michael. Once at an extreme altitude of over 8000m, the team relies on a 10-man search crew, armed with drones and the skillset to go off the summit lines. But as the weather closes in and
with time against them, they face a series of unexpected challenges.
UPDATE 3/7/23 – Disney has announced that “Finding Michael” is now available to stream on Disney+ in the UK, Canada and Australia.
