A new movie about Weird All and his spectacular ascent to stardom with early singles like “Eat It” and “Like a Surgeon” is being produced by Funny or Die and Tango Entertainment. The film stars Julianne Nicholson, Daniel Radcliffe from Harry Potter, Evan Rachel Wood from Westworld, Rainn Wilson from The Office, and Toby Huss from GLOW (I, Tonya). With his parodies of some of the greatest songs ever written, “Weird Al” Yankovic has been a staple of popular culture for many years. He is currently the focus of a brand-new film directed by Eric Appel. Unfortunately, the movie isn’t on Netflix, and if you’re here, odds are good that you’ll have trouble locating it.
Will Netflix release Weird: The Al Yankovic Story?
Weird: The Al Yankovic Story is only available on Roku, thus there are no known intentions to release it on Netflix. They are the owners of the worldwide rights to the film, and as far as we know, they haven’t sold it to any other international streaming services. Naturally, distributors not selling their films to Netflix abroad is not uncommon, but in the majority of cases, there is at least someplace to watch their films after their theatrical premiere. With The Roku Channel, however, such is not the case. The film will definitely be one of the most difficult to watch releases of 2022, considering The Roku Channel’s erratic and regional availability.
Only three regions can even watch the movie, according to the Roku Channel website. Canada, the UK, and the US. The movie is simplest to watch in the United States thanks to The Roku Channel’s website or other apps that are mostly only available on Roku devices. Because the internet cannot be accessed in the UK, you will need a Roku device or a few additional gadgets to view via The Roku Channel, such as Hisense TV or Sky Q. The Roku Channel doesn’t exist in any way in many places. Al Yankovic, the movie’s subject, acknowledged that the film was difficult to see and advised viewers to consider downloading it while Roku worked on fixing the issue. Crazy stuff.
