Disney+ launched in the United Kingdom and many other European countries on March 24, 2020.
The new streaming service offers thousands of viewing options including original movies and series and the best content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
Despite hours and hours worth of content to enjoy, there’s one show in particular that fans are craving to re-watch, “The Peanuts Movie”.
What is ‘The Peanuts Movie’ About?
“The Peanuts Movie” (known in some countries as “Snoopy and Charlie Brown: A Peanuts Movie”) is a 2015 animated comedy film based on Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip Peanuts, produced by Blue Sky Studios and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is the fifth full-length Peanuts film and the first in 35 years.
The movie follows good ol’ Charlie Brown (Noah Schnapp), the boy who always tries his best against seemingly impossible odds. When the Little Red-Haired Girl moves into his neighborhood, Charlie Brown develops a crush on her. Meanwhile, his best friend Snoopy embarks on an epic adventure in a fantasy world. As a World War I flying ace, the lovable beagle pursues his nemesis, the Red Baron, while also trying to win the heart of a beautiful poodle named Fifi (Kristin Chenoweth).
The film was met with generally favorable reviews, with praise for the animation, voice acting, and faithfulness towards the source material.
Is ‘The Peanuts Movie’ Disney?
The short answer? It’s complicated. Disney doesn’t own “Peanuts” or “Snoopy” and has just secured the rights to make one animated movie under the “Peanuts” brand. “The Peanuts Movie” was produced by Blue Sky Studios and distributed by 20th Century Fox, both of which are owned by the Walt Disney Company. So, technically yes, “The Peanuts Movie”, specifically, falls under Disney right now.
Is ‘The Peanuts Movie’ on Disney Plus UK?
“The Peanuts Movie” has definitely been one of the most requested shows for Disney Plus. After all, it was a huge box office success so naturally, fans are looking to re-watch the movie. Disney answered the request and the movie is now available in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Unfortunately, this doesn’t include the United Kingdom and Ireland at this time.
Disney doesn’t typically share their plans on when a specific title will be added to the streaming service. New content is usually announced during the middle of the month for the following month. This gives us our best indication on what’s coming to Disney+ in the near future.
When is ‘The Peanuts Movie’ Coming To Disney Plus?
Disney hasn’t announced an exact release date on when “The Peanuts Movie” will be coming to Disney+ in the UK and Ireland.
It’s difficult to say exactly when the movie might be arriving on Disney+. Disney has added other 20th Century Studios movies such as the “Ice Age” franchise and “The Call of the Wild” in the UK and Ireland.
The streaming rights for the movie have been sold to Netflix in the UK so it’s unlikely to make an appear on Disney Plus anytime soon. The good news is you can stream it right now on Netflix instead.
