‘Red’ to premiere directly on Disney + and skip its planned theatrical release

Disney just made it official that ‘Red’, the new original pixar movie, the planned theatrical release for premiere directly in Disney +. In this way, ‘Red’ becomes the third consecutive film of the studio that ends up reaching us in this way, since both ‘Soul’ and ‘Luca’ came to us from the hand of said streaming platform.

Disney’s decision comes with the pandemic of coronavirus marking record numbers of infections in several countries, something that surely had already partly motivated other postponements such as that of ‘Morbius’. And everything suggests that more will arrive in the coming days.
