Get ready to start planning your Disney movie marathons because the House of Mouse is coming to Netflix in a big way later this year.
Netflix has announced that beginning in September, the online streaming service will become the official home for all of the Walt Disney Company films, including titles produced under Lucasfilm, Marvel, and Pixar. When the deal kicks in, Netflix will become the only place you’ll be able to stream any Disney film that hits theaters in 2016 and beyond. Though the streaming site didn’t provide a list of titles, movies buffs will likely be able to add blockbusters like Captain America: Civil War, The Jungle Book, and Frozen 2 (whenever that comes out!) to their queue.
According to InsideTheMagic.net, the new partnership between Netflix and Disney prohibits other online streaming services like Amazon Prime and Hulu from having access to stream the latest Disney titles. Additionally, it also blocks big subscription networks like HBO and Showtime from doing the same.
Needless to say, deal is a huge move for Netflix, and it’s bound to be an enticing factor as far as keeping their customers engaged. The online subscription service originally announced the deal back in 2012, so it’s nice to see it finally getting put into effect.
We’re definitely looking forward to some of our favorite Disney movies coming to Netflix– now the only thing we’ll have to worry about is figuring out which film to watch first!
