Is DreamWorks Migration streaming?

Disney and Pixar may have struggled recently, but Universal Pictures and Illumination have been on a roll for the last three years. Lighting Sing 2 and Minions: The Rise of Gru were the most successful animated films of 2021 and 2022. This year Illumination Super Mario Bros. Movie was the second biggest domestic film hit. Only Barbie he earned more money. At the end of 2023, Illumination has one more original animated film under its wings: Migration.

Benjamin Renner and Mike White came up with the story Migration, but White is the film’s only credited screenwriter. Renner also directed it alongside Guyl Homsy as they follow the misadventures of a family of ducks trying to travel from New England to Jamaica.

Kumail Nanjiani stars as Mack Mallard, Elizabeth Banks as Pam Mallard, Caspar Jennings as Dax Mallard, Tresi Gazal as Gwen Mallard, Awkwafina as Chump, Keegan-Michael Key as Delroy, David Mitchell as Googoo, Carol Kane as Erin, and Danny DeVito like Dan.

Now this Migration has arrived in theaters, it’s time to let you know if you can also stream it from the comfort of your home this holiday season.

Is the migration streamed?

No, not yet. Although Five Nights at Freddy’swith had great success with its daily theatrical release and streaming, that’s usually not the case. Animated films tend to do better in theaters when they’re not readily available for streaming. Even the thought of an animated film heading to streaming quickly helped destroy Disney Washing at the box office last month.

It’s too early to say how well Migration it will have the opposite effect Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, but counterprogramming movies for families during the holidays has worked in the past. Whether it was successful this time, we will find out on Saturday at the earliest.

Where will the migration be available to stream at home?

As a Universal Pictures film, Migrationthe first streaming stop will be on Peacock. Universal is known for sending animated films to Peacock as soon as 17 days after they hit theaters. But if Migration absolutely bombs in theaters, a February or March streaming premiere on Peacock is more likely.

Earlier this year, Universal also showed its willingness to send its animated films to outside streamers. Since Migration is animated, likely to join Super Mario Bros. Movie on Netflix around mid-2024. And then it will eventually migrate back to Peacock.
