When is “The King’s Man” Coming To Disney Plus Or Hulu?
Disney announced that their remaining movie slate for 2021 will be released in theatres with a 45-day exclusive window. This includes “The King’s Man”. Before the pandemic, movies would often take 6-8 months to arrive on Disney+, but that has changed dramatically.
“The King’s Man” is a 20th Century Studios movie meaning that the film is required to go to HBO Max due to existing contracts. This deal was created before Disney+ and is set to expire at the end of 2022. However, Disney recently signed a temporary deal WarnerMedia to share access to select titles on either Hulu or Disney+. This means that if “The King’s Man” is one of those selected titles under this deal, we could see the movie arrive on Hulu in the United States.
As the movie is R rated, Hulu is the only option in the United States and “The King’s Man” will not be coming to Disney+. Internationally things are different; read below!
It’s important to note that Disney has not announced if and when this title will be arriving on Hulu.
The King’s Man Disney Plus Release Date (International)
The good news is that things are much less complicating internationally, and we can expect to see “The King’s Man” on Disney+. While we don’t know when the movie will arrive on Disney+, we can make a few educated guesses based on previous 20th Century Studios movies.
We can expect “The King’s Man” to arrive sometime after the following dates:
45 Days from the theatrical release date:
- Canada: Saturday, February 05, 2022
- UK/Ireland – Wednesday, February 09, 2022
- Australia/New Zealand – Sunday, February 20, 2022
This means that “The King’s Man” should arrive on Disney+ anywhere from a couple of days to weeks after the above dates. It’s important to remember that Disney hasn’t when exactly the movie will be arriving on Disney+, but stay tuned!
