According to a press release sent via email from Disney, the decision to stream the film instead of making it available in theaters is the result of the delayed box office recovery, especially for family moviesalong with flexibility.

Kareem Daniel, the Chairman of Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution said, “Given the delayed box office recovery, particularly for family films, flexibility remains at the core of our distribution decisions as we prioritize delivering the unparalleled content of The Walt Disney Company to audiences around the world.”
