“Rosaline” To Stream On Disney+ In The US For Valentine’s Week
Disney has announced that in celebration of Valentine’s Day, Disney+ will offer its U.S. subscribers the delightful romantic comedy “Rosaline,” starring Kaitlyn Dever, Isabela Merced, Kyle Allen and Sean Teale, with Minnie Driver and Bradley Whitford, to stream for a limited time only from February 10-15. The film originally debuted on Hulu last October and was released internationally on Disney+.
From 20th Century Studios, “Rosaline” is a fresh, comedic twist on Shakespeare’s classic love story “Romeo & Juliet,” told from the perspective of Juliet’s cousin Rosaline (Dever), who also happens to be Romeo’s recent love interest. Heartbroken when Romeo (Allen) meets Juliet (Merced) and begins to pursue her, Rosaline schemes to foil the famous romance and win back her guy.
“Rosaline” was directed by Karen Maine from a screenplay by Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber, based on the novel “When You Were Mine” by Rebecca Serle. Shawn Levy, Dan Cohen and Dan Levine are the producers, with Kaitlin Dever, Scott Neustadter, Michael H. Weber, Whitney Brown, Emily Morris and Becca Edelman serving as executive producers.
Disney+ subscribers can find additional love stories from “Lady and the Tramp” to “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella” to “WandaVision” in the Valentine’s Day collection on Disney+.
Hopefully, this might be a test for more Hulu Original films that are a little more mature to come over to Disney+ in the US. However, it’s a shame it’s only being made available for a limited period and not permanent, like they’ve done with “Love,Victor” and “The Orville”.
