As a result, for the time being, any website claiming to have the film for streaming or download is illegal.
The Digital Economy Act 2017 means people could now face ten-year prison sentences for illegally streaming copyrighted content.
To be sure you’re not watching copyrighted material, you should go direct to companies such as Netflix or Amazon Prime, according to FACT (Federation Against Copyright Theft).
As well as this, illegal streaming also puts your computer at risk from malware, so it is best to steer clear until May 11.

The BBFC writes: “Very mild threat includes sight of a girl falling through ice on a frozen pond; she is quickly rescued.
“There is a mild scuffle between sisters. There is a passing reference to hanging, as well as an oblique reference to working in a ‘cathouse’.
“A character dies and people are seen grieving.”
Overall, the film is lighthearted and not particularly upsetting, therefore most children should enjoy the adaptation and not find much to upset them – however all parents should consider their own child’s needs before taking them along.
