With most theater screens still darkened amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many studios have been forced to push back release dates of upcoming films -- but some are dropping their newest releases on streaming platforms for at-home quarantine viewing instead.
Universal Pictures led the charge by making new releases such as The Hunt and Trolls World Tour available far sooner than expected, while Disney began streaming Frozen II and Onward on Disney+ during this "challenging period." And that was just the start of our at-home streaming slate on popular platforms like Apple, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Fandango Now and Vudu.
Below, an up-to-date list of new movies to stream -- plus, keep scrolling to see what's coming soon.

Angelina Jolie, Sam Rockwell, Danny DeVito and Helen Mirren lend their voices to Disney's live-action adaptation of the beloved book about a very special gorilla. "The world has changed in a heartbeat. People all over the globe have shared important, life changing experiences in ways we have not seen for a century," says director Thea Sharrock. "In response to this, I am so happy that we can share Katherine Applegate's delightful and original story, The One and Only Ivan, with the world this August on Disney+, bringing some joy through this unique movie of true friendship, inspired by a true story."
Nickelodeon's big screen SpongeBob adventure will instead debut at home, available to rent on demand before Sponge on the Run streams exclusively on CBS All Access in early 2021 alongside the entire series of SpongeBob SquarePants. Sign up for CBS All Access here.
"We're happy to give kids and families a much-deserved lift in any way we can, and the PVOD release of the new SpongeBob theatrical and putting all seasons of the TV series on CBS All Access are two of the best ways I can think of to get immersed in the optimism and joy that this terrific character represents," said Nickelodeon's Ramsey Naito.
