Netflix will be the exclusive U.S. home for Disney's movies from September

24 May 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

You may not remember it but way back in 2012, Netflix and Disney signed a deal to make Netflix the “exclusive pay TV home” for all new Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm movies in the US. Netflix has announced that its blockbuster deal will start from September 2016.

Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm

The deal will only apply to Netflix subscribers in the US but it is still a pretty big achievement for Netflix. The deal was signed back in 2012 before Netflix started producing TV series and movies. Back then, many people still doubted that Netflix could challenge the big boys.

The deal means that Netflix will carry all Disney movies released in 2016 and beyond after the theatre window and the DVD/Blu-ray/online sales releases. This means that Star Wars (except The Force Awakens), Captain America: Civil War, The Jungle Book, The BFG, and Finding Dory are included plus lots of other upcoming movies. The deal gives Netflix exclusive rights so no other networks in the US can offer them at the same time (the first-run window).

The Jungle Book

- “From September onwards, Netflix will become the exclusive US pay TV home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief of content at Netflix.

More movies incoming

Besides the Disney deal Netflix will, in the US, debut the original The Jurassic Park trilogy, Spotlight, and The Fundamentals of Caring in June. In July, it will add The Big Short, Brahman Naman, Tallulah, and two complete franchises; Back to The Future and Lethal Weapon.

In August, Netflix will add The Little Prince, The Fast & The Furious, The Wedding Planner, and St. Vincent. Besides the Disney movies, Netflix will debut its two original movies Mascots and War Machine in September.
