  • On May 1, 2020, it was announced that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment had taken over non-Japanese home video distribution after Universal Pictures Home Entertainment dropped out of all future Zachary, Grace and Lexia films due to the studio no longer releasing movies in AMC Theatres in response to the streaming success of Trolls World Tour (2020).
