Disney will make Netflix the happiest place on earth this September
OREANDA-NEWS. May 24, 2016. "Star Wars," "Captain America," "The Jungle Book" and "Finding Dory" -- this September, Netflix will become the exclusive place to stream all of Disney's latest movies.
It's a deal that's taken nearly four years to bear fruit. In 2012, Netflix and Disney said they'd reached an arrangement to make Netflix the exclusive US subscription television provider of first-run, live-action and animated feature films. (We wrote a huge FAQ on the subject.)
But it's only today, buried in a Netflix press release, that we're learning September is the month when Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm's latest works will make it to Netflix.
Until September, pay-TV channel Starz still has the rights to Disney's creations.
