Disney has announced that it will release Pixar's Onward on iTunes and other on-demand services tonight.

#PixarOnward is coming to the US tonight on digital download and will be streaming on #DisneyPlus on April 3rd.

The computer animated film premiered at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival on February 21, 2020 and was released in the United States on March 6, 2020. It has grossed about $103 million worldwide thus far; however, the coronavirus outbreak has affected ticket sales. This has led Disney to cut its theatrical release window short and make the film available to rent on iTunes.

“While we’re looking forward to audiences enjoying our films on the big screen again soon, given the current circumstances, we are pleased to release this fun, adventurous film to digital platforms early for audiences to enjoy from the comfort of their homes,” said director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae.

NBCUniversal is also offering its theatrical releases as iTunes rentals. More details here.

You'll be able to rent Onward starting at 8PM ET.
