Jojo Rabbit is Taika Waititi’s latest comedy, following the life of a young Hitler Youth boy (played by Roman Griffin Davis). His world is rocked when he is forced to question his allegiances after discovering a Jewish Girl (Thomasin McKenzie) is hiding in his attic. Some fans prefer to cuddle up on the sofa and watch movies at home rather than in the cinema – but can they do that with Jojo Rabbit?
Can you watch the full movie of Jojo Rabbit online? Is it legal?
Any website claiming to have the film for streaming or download is illegal.
The Digital Economy Act 2017 means people could now face 10-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).

Waititi’s latest movie has only just entered cinemas, which is why, at present, it is only available to watch in cinemas.
Some films take part in simultaneous distribution, meaning their movies are out in cinemas at the same time as they become available for streaming, and sometimes even downloading as well.
This will usually be when the film is distributed by companies which have a streaming service of their own, such as Curzon Artificial Eye, Netflix or Amazon Prime.
However, that is not the case for Jojo Rabbit, which has been distributed by 20th Century Fox in the UK.

This means the film will not be available for download or streaming until much later in its life.
Usually, films become available to download after they have left cinemas, around six or so months from their original film release.
This is also often when movies come out on DVD and Blu Ray, so soon enough there will be multiple ways for fans to get a hold of Jojo Rabbit after its cinema release.
For the time being, the only way to catch this movie is by heading to the local cinema.

What is Jojo Rabbit about?
Jojo Rabbit follows a 10-year-old Hitler Youth (Griffin Davis) as he lives his daily life helping with the Hitler Youth campaigning, whether that be through distributing propaganda or taking part in training camps.
He is aided by his imaginary friend, a rather silly version of Hitler himself (Taika Waititi) who tries to help him be the best follower of Hitler he can be.
However, when Jojo realises his kind-hearted mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl (McKenzie) he is caught in a difficult dilemma, where he is forced to question his views and unlearn some of the shocking propaganda he believed to be true.

With his imaginary friend urging him to give her up to authorities, however, and the Gestapo always lurking, Jojo has a difficult decision to make.
Will he choose to help his new potential friend, protecting his mother, or stay true to the propanda he has been forced to believe?
Despite the plot sounding rather serious, the film is full of humour and charming performances, especially from the young Roman Griffin Davis.
