Netflix to Exclusively Stream Disney Movies Starting September, Includes Marvel and Star Wars

Because nothing says “Netflix and chill,” like Frozen

In a pretty big win for the company, Netflix has announced that starting in 2016, it will be the exclusive streaming home to all Disney films, which includes Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar.

The original deal was penned way back in 2012, when the streaming service outbid networks such as HBO and Starz for a one time deal that will last several years. Viewers will be able to catch previously licensed films on their streaming services, like Thor: The Dark World on HBO, but moving forward, Disney titles like Zootopia and Captain America: Civil War will stream exclusively on Netflix.

The blog post also highlights some of this summer’s other additions. On June 1st, the Jurassic Park trilogy, based the series of sci-fi novels written by Michael Crichton, will debut on Netflix. The streaming service will also release The Fundamentals of Caring, starring Paul Rudd, and War Machine, starring and produced by Brad Pitt, both as original films in the coming months.

We called Marvel’s latest film, Captain America: Civil War, and it’s inevitable brawl between Captain America and Iron Man, “deeply meaningful.” Are you excited for Netflix’s new deal with Disney? Worried? Talk with us about it in the comments below.
