Netflix Gets All of Disney's New Releases Starting This Fall

As of September, a deal Netflix cut with Disney back in 2012 takes effect, meaning the service gets the latest movies from not just Walt Disney Animation, but Marvel, Pixar, and Lucasfilm too.

Presumably that means at some point in the not-too-distant future you’ll be able to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens over and over until your eyeballs bleed.


Netflix reminded everybody of their coming attractions in a recent blog post, via the Verge. The deal means Netflix gets its hands on the latest releases exclusively, before not just Amazon Prime and Hulu, but also HBO, Starz, and other premium channels. God only knows how much this agreement is costing Netflix, but maybe it’ll help keep you from running through all the good shows at once and then finding yourself at the bottom of the content barrel.

However, E! notes that Hercules, Mulan, and Hunchback of Notre Dame will all be disappearing from the service in June. Sorry, Disney nostalgists. But they’re adding A Walk to Remember, in case you have fond high school memories of crying on behalf of Mandy Moore.
