Disney has announced the release date of the upcoming holiday special of the 20th Animation series “Solar Opposites” is coming to Disney+ in Canada on Monday 22nd November 2021.
While a release date for other countries has yet been announced, this special will likely be released on Disney+ worldwide and on Hulu in the US on the same date, since it’s dropping on a random Monday, which Disney+ usually doesn’t do.
The holiday special was announced earlier this year at the end of the credits of the second season.
Earlier this year, one of the “Solar Opposite” creators, Justin Roiland, hinted at the upcoming episode in an interview with Syfy Wire.
It’s so Christmas-y and holiday [themed]. It’s so f***in’ awesome. No sh**, I think it might be my favorite episode of the entire Season 2… The other thing I can say about it is that it introduces a specific sci-fi tech that if we wanted to, we could do a lot more with it. It’s just great.
Co-creator Mike McMahan, added:
There’s no Wall in the Christmas episode. It’s flat-out disconnected from the rest of the season. It truly is: ‘What if somebody made the mistake of hiring me, Justin, Josh [Bycel, co-showrunner], and the rest of the team to make an actual Christmas episode? And how would we have portrayed them?’… On the surface, it seems pretty f***in’ Christmas-y at first. I fear a family sitting down and being like, ‘What other Christmas things does Hulu have?’ And then they start watching this and then at one point, they have to slam the TV down. ‘Children! Run to your rooms and pray!’”
The previous two seasons of “Solar Opposites” are available now on Disney+ in Canada.
