DreamWorks Animation’s latest installment, ‘Trolls Band Together,’ is poised for its theatrical debut on November 17, 2023, in the United States. The buzz surrounding the series is indicative of its success, whether it be in theaters or via streaming platforms. However, once the theatrical run concludes, the question arises: where can one access the online viewing experience? As an animated film, many viewers are expecting the film to be streamed on Disney Plus, so will it be on Disney Plus?
Under the direction of Walt Dohrn and with the writer Elizabeth Tippet, the cast of ‘Trolls Band Together’— the threequel to the “Trolls”— boasts notable voices such as Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Camila Cabello, Eric André, Troye Sivan, Kid Cudi, and Daveed Diggs. The film is financed by producer Gina Shay under the production banners of DreamWorks Animation, and Universal Pictures will distribute it.
Will Trolls Band Together be on Disney Plus?
No, ‘Trolls Band Together’ won’t be on Disney Plus. Universal’s animated threequel won’t be available for streaming on Disney Plus in the USA anytime soon, as it’s not a Walt Disney production— films from Walt Disney Studios are typically accessible on Disney Plus following theatrical release. ‘Trolls Band Together’ is an official creation of Universal Pictures, and the film is poised to stream on NBCUniversal’s Peacock as per Universal’s streaming scheduling. Also, it’s important to note that there is currently no streaming agreement in place between Disney and Universal, and without the acquisition of streaming rights, ‘Trolls Band Together’ won’t be accessible for streaming on Disney Plus in the United States.
While the buzz surrounding ‘Trolls Band Together’ may not be overwhelming, critics anticipate that it will find favor as a popular streaming choice, given its family-friendly content and broad appeal. However, the absence of the film on Disney Plus might disappoint subscribers of the platform. In our view, considering its family-oriented nature, we recommend experiencing the movie with your entire family in theaters for a more immersive and enjoyable viewing experience, surpassing the confines of a small screen.
