Out This Week: 'Onward', 'Attack On Titan S3 Part 2' And More

Despite the extraordinary circumstances we all find ourselves in, home entertainment releases will continue for the foreseeable future. The major impact is that digital releases of titles may be brought forward, as distributors seek to recoup lost revenue due to shuttered cinemas worldwide. Disney surprised us all this week, by releasing Pixar's Onward- which is technically still in theatrical release if you could find one open- on digital in the US.

Otherwise, it's a quiet week, with Attack On Titan series 3 Part 2 releasing in the UK, and the complete Maria Watches Over Us collection and a handful of budget anime rereleases in the US.
