Amazon has finally given a release date to its film Troop Zero starring Viola Davis and Allison Janney.

The film, which premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival and will screen soon at the AFI Fest, will be available on Amazon Prime Video on January 17, 2020, foregoing a theatrical release.

Troop Zero also stars Mckenna Grace, Jim Gaffigan, Mike Epps, Edi Patterson, Charlie Shotwell with Milan Ray, Johanna Colón and Bella Higginbotham. It follows a young outcast and member of a Girl Scouts-like organization as they prepare for a competition.

Our Sundance review of the film reads, “It’s a voyage with an emotional ending that will tug at your heartstrings. Another crucial part of the narrative is mourning, with a specific interest in the impact of death on children. It’s rare to see Davis doing comedic fare, but once again, she proves that she’s one of the best when it comes to crossing over from tears to laughs.”
