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 last Friday.
Disney had commented on the delay via social media:
We’re sorry that the debut date for Finding Michael has shifted on Disney+. We will let you know as soon as we have new timings for its launch. This will be in the near future. Thanks for your patience.
Today, “Finding Michael” is now available to stream on Disney+ in Canada, the UK and Australia. A Disney+ release date in the United States has not been announced yet.
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.
