Disney and Pixar's latest hit, "Onward," will be available on their streaming service in record time.

"Onward" will be on Disney+ starting April 3, and it is available to rent now. This is a record turnaround due to the shutdown of theaters and many people staying home to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The movie features the voices of Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Octavia Spencer and more.

The movie received an 87 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes from critics and received a 95 percent audience score.

"Do families need fathers? Scanlon delivers a love song to atypical clans, which couldn't end on a sweeter, or clearer, note," critic Charlotte O'Sullivan with the London Evening Standard.

"Even mid-level Pixar still casts a spell," Bob Mondello with NPR said about the animated movie.
