Disney has announced that “The Greatest Showman” will be coming to Disney+ on August 14, 2020.
The “The Greatest Showman” was produced by 20th Century Fox, which Disney inquired back in 2019. As it stands, Disney has only confirmed the movie will be arriving in the US.
Disney released the full schedule for Disney+ in July which didn’t include “The Greatest Showman”. August or early to mid-September seems likely.
Disney also released a summer trailer for Disney+:
