Tom & Jerry will now be screened in Indian cinemas on February 19, a full week earlier than originally announced. Warner Bros. India revealed the new release date through its social media channels on Thursday. This makes the release date of Indian movies one week ahead of the US, and Tom & Jerry will release the movie on HBO Max (the exclusive streaming service in the US) and movie theaters on February 26. In India, in addition to the three local language dubbing: Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, English (original language) mixed live/animated Tom and Jerry movies will also be provided.

However, India will not be the first market to seize the iconic cat and mouse big screen to return. Tom & Jerry premiered in the Netherlands on February 10, and subsequently premiered in Brazil and Singapore on February 11. On February 19, India was the next wave of markets for Iceland and Lithuania. Russia and Slovakia will follow up on February 25, while Tom and Jerry will arrive in the United States on February 26. Argentina, the Czech Republic, Croatia and Portugal will follow up on March 4, and Spain and France will release on March 5. In Japan, Tom & Jerry will expire on March 19.
Of course, whether this goes according to plan depends on how the COVID-19 situation is on the ground. For example, approximately 65% of theaters in the United States are still closed (including the major metropolitan areas of New York and Los Angeles). Theaters throughout the UK have been closed indefinitely, and the UK has implemented a third strict blockade across the country. The same is true in France, at least until the end of January. In Spain, the operating capacity of movie theaters is 30% to 50%. But while Americans can choose to watch Tom and Jerry at home (on HBO Max), others do not.
