If you’re a lover of any and all things Disney then you are going to be jumping for joy when you see what’s coming to Netflix this year.
In 2013, Netflix announced a record-breaking deal between themselves and Disney which would mean that brand new theatrical releases of Disney movies would release on Netflix soon after their DVD release instead of going to the previous contract holder Starz. The deal is expected to last at least three years although the exact length is not known. Also, what will happen to these titles after the deal lapses are yet to be known? Titles included are all the new releases from Disney, Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Studios, Marvel and Lucasfilms.
Sadly at this time older Disney titles are not a part of this deal but Disney movies usually come and go on a rotating basis. It’d be announced and done on a title-by-title basis. The movies will star appearing on Netflix within 6-9 months after first being in theaters and usually a few weeks after the DVD release. Expect a wait of around 6-9 months.
And Now here’s a look at your Disney, Pixar and Marvel favorites and when you can catch them over and over and over again on Netflix, or better yet, make plans for Family Movie Night each week and sit down and enjoy your favorites together. Which are you most excited to see?
