Free Guy — the Ryan Reynolds-led action comedy primarily set inside a video game world — is coming to Disney+ Hotstar on October 15, the streaming service announced. It is less than a month after its theatrical release in India. Free Cow was only available in theaters in English and Hindi, but the film will be available on Disney+ Hotstar in two additional languages, Tamil and Telugu. This is doubly good for Tamil and Telugu speakers who were left out. Free Guy’s Disney+ Hotstar release benefits everyone even in Maharashtra, where theaters are closed till October 22.
“Heroes Are Cool, But We’d Like A Boy” [Ryan Reynolds] To save our world,” Disney+ Hotstar posted in a tweet earlier on Thursday, suggesting that the Free Cow streaming service was on its way. Naturally, fans asked for confirmation and a release date. Disney+ Hotstar quickly responded: “Streaming of the Free Guy starts October 15th!” although it did not mention multi-language support for the Free Guy.

Free Guy was originally released in mid-August in cinemas around the world, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, the UAE and the USA. While Disney previously released the Scarlett Johansson-led Choice Kali Mai, and Jungle Cruise, with Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt both in theaters and on Disney+ Premiere Access at the same time, couldn’t do the same with Free Guy because the title was part of a 20th Century Fox deal.
After the end of the 45-day theatrical window, Free Guy arrived in Singapore and the UK on Disney+ in late September, and now, it’s coming to Disney+ Hotstar in India.
Reynolds plays Guy, a non-player character (NPC) and bank teller in an open world video game called Free City. When he learns that his world isn’t real and is about to be closed, Guy embarks on a journey to save it from destruction. Free Guy stars Jodie Comer as indie game developer Millie Rusk and Guy’s love interest Molotov Girl, Joe Keery as indie game developer Walter McKay, who now works at Free Guy behemoth Tsunami Games, Lil Riley Howery as Guy Buddy, best friend and bank guard, works as Utkarsh. Ambudkar as tsunami worker Mauser, and Taika Waititi as tsunami chief Antwan.
Free Guy is available on Disney+Hotstar in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu starting October 15. It was released in Indian cinemas on 17 September.
