Disney has announced that the Searchlight Pictures film, “Chevalier”, will be coming to Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Wednesday, 26th July 2023, which is just over 45 days since its UK theatrical release in June.

The film stars Kelvin Harrison Jr., Samara Weaving, Lucy Boynton, Minnie Driver, Sian Clifford, Alex Fitzalan and Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo. It was directed by Stephen Williams, the film is written by Stefani Robinson and produced by Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe at Element Pictures, Stefani Robinson, and Dianne McGunigle.
