A bit of cheering up wouldn't go amiss right now, so it might interest you to hear that you can watch Onward online via a Disney Plus membership right now if you live in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, and beyond.

Because coronavirus took a sledgehammer to normality, Disney announced that it'd be possible to stream Onward via their streaming service despite the fact that the film was still in theaters at the time. As such, all you need to stream Onward right now is a Disney Plus subscription. Once you've got a membership, you're then free to watch it as often as you'd like. 

Taking place in a fantasy world where magic has been replaced by modern tech like electricity, cars, and TV, Onward follows two brothers who discover that they can resurrect their dearly departed dad with his wizard's staff. Unfortunately for them, the spell goes wrong and only his bottom half materializes. This leads the trio on an epic quest to fix their mistake. It's a heart-warming story that takes plenty of cues from the best tabletop RPGs; Pixar have clearly gotten more than a few games like the D&D Starter Set under their belt.

It's not the only thing worth watching on Disney Plus, of course. You can watch The Simpsons online (31 seasons of it) and dabble in some Star Wars as well. You can even watch The Falcon and the Winter Soldier if you'd like to catch up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it's now possible to watch Raya and the Last Dragon as well if you'd prefer a bit of animated action. In other words? Disney Plus is packed with things to see, and we'd argue it's well worth the money - even if you only get a single month's membership and cancel the subscription once you're done.

So let's get down to it: here's how to stream Onward right away and get the best deal via a Disney Plus sign-up.

Onward has landed on Disney Plus very early thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, and you can watch it right now if you have a membership. Sweet! There's plenty of content to keep you busy once you've finished Onward, too. Frozen 2 can be found on Disney Plus, Marvel films are present and correct, and Star Wars of all kinds is available as well. At $7.99 per month, that's not bad value for money. Speaking of which, don't forget about Disney's alternative offer - you can get a bundle with Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus for $13.99 per month or $19.99p/m without Hulu ads. It's comfortably one of the best Disney Plus bundles we've seen.

Thanks to coronavirus shutting down theatres, Onward arrived in homes a little early; much like the US, Pixar's fantasy film became available on Disney Plus for the standard cost of $11.99 per month (which is the best deal on offer at the moment, considering the fact that the Disney Plus free trial has vanished). Once you're done with Onward, you'll definitely be kept busy; Disney films obviously make up the bulk of Disney Plus, but Marvel and Star Wars movies are also available.
