According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chloe Zhao’s ‘Nomadland’ will premiere on the new Star hub on Disney plus in the UK and Ireland on April 30, this year and can be made available to all the Disney plus subscribers at no additional charge. However, once the cinemas will re-open in the country, the film will be available for exhibitors to program.
