Later this month Universal Pictures’ Trolls World Tour will make history. Previously scheduled for a theatrical release on April 10, the film is still technically slated to premiere in some theaters on that day. But it will also be arriving on video-on-demand streaming, marking the first time a studio has broken the theatrical window for a major release so it can have a day-and-date premiere on VOD.
In less than a few weeks, families hunkered down in self-isolation in North America and the UK will be able to watch the DreamWorks Animation follow-up to a loved 2016 hit from the comfort, and safety, of their own home. Here’s how you can get in on the action and what you need to know.

Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Sam Rockwell, George Clinton, Kenan Thompson, and more are also adding their voices (and vocals) to the cast.
