Back in 2012, Netflix nabbed a whale of a partnership with the Walt Disney Company. They agreed that Netflix would get exclusivity for first-run live-action animated films and that this would be effective in 2016 and, well, here we are. You can expect more content from Disney, Marvel, LucasArts, and Pixar if you happen to subscribed to their service and have a way to access the content in the US by September.
Here’s the part of their blog that highlights the September releases in the US:
From September onwards, Netflix will become the exclusive US pay TV home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar. And we’re excited to be bringing you new and exclusive Netflix Original movies including Mascots from the master of low-key comedy Christopher Guest (Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind) and War Machine, from acclaimed Australian director David Michod and starring Brad Pitt, in the serio-comic tale of the U.S. military adventure in Afghanistan.
The deal between Netflix and The Walt Disney Company was made way before the streaming service opened its doors to our part of the world, so we’re guessing it’ll be awhile before this kicks in for our region or it may not affect us at all. Like we said, if you happen to be subscribed to Netflix and found a VPN that still works then enjoy all the Disney movies that made you laugh and/or cry coming you way.
