The changes in question were that Universal was planning involved their theatrical releases. After they delayed films like Fast 9 by a full year, AMC expected them to delay films like Trolls. Turns out that Universal did not have the same plan and instead released it to streaming services as a Video on Demand.
Even though The High Note is definitely not as anticipated or as readily expected to be watched as Trolls. But, considering how well Trolls did, it makes sense that Universal wants to try and replicate that success. Even if it means putting themselves deeper in the hole of boycotts via movie theaters.
If you’re interested in watching The High Note, it will be releasing very soon for VoD. If you’re not happy with Universal’s plans and changes, be sure to let us know in the comments below!
