The Color Purple OTT Release

There has been no word from Warner Bros. on when The Color Purple will be released on streaming. As a Warner Bros. movie, we know The Color Purple will eventually be available via Max, rather than Netflix, Hulu, or Disney+.

There is no standard window of time between theatrical and streaming releases for Warner Bros. Its last four films came to Max 49 days (The Nun 2), 91 days (Blue Beetle), 56 days (Meg 2), and 147 days (Barbie) after their theatrical debuts. Because of Barbie’s massive success in theatres, we estimate that The Color Purple will air between late February and March 2024, 2 and 3 months after hitting theatres.

The Color Purple Storyline

This musical version of Alice Walker’s 1982 novel is adapted from the stageplay that ran on Broadway from 2005 to 2008. The official synopsis from Warner Bros. is as follows,

A story of love and resilience based on the novel and the Broadway musical, The Color Purple is a decades-spanning tale of one woman’s journey to independence. Celie faces many hardships in her life but ultimately finds extraordinary strength and hope in the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood.

With the creation of both the critically acclaimed but controversial 1985 feature film of the same name by Steven Spielberg, a hit Broadway musical in 2005 and a much-praised musical revival in 2015, Walker’s story has become an integral part of American literary canon and the world of film and theatre. With a movie adaptation of the musical out on Christmas Day, this beloved tale will be brought back to the big screen.
