As if all the new TV shows and movies coming to Netflix in June weren’t enough, Netflix is already hyping up its entire summer slate. For June, the service has Jurassic Park and Spotlight, July brings The Big Short and Back to the Future and August’s lineup includes The Little Prince and The Fast & The Furious.
But the biggest addition comes in September, when Netflix becomes “the exclusive US pay TV home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar.”
The deal basically means that all relevant movies will go straight to Netflix after the DVD release — and it’s exclusive, so you won’t be able to get the same movies on Amazon Prime or HBO.
We originally covered the deal between Netflix and Disney way back in 2012, but this is the first time we’ve been given a precise window for when the deal would go into effect. As the original press release notes, this only applies to first-run live-action and animated feature films, but that’s still a ton of value.
It’s also worth reminding everyone that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters in December, so presumably it will be one of the first Disney movies to release on Netflix under this new arrangement. Unfortunately, Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos didn’t have many details to share in his blog post on Monday.
We’ll be keeping an eye out for any more news regarding the Netflix-Disney deal, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at the service’s summer schedule:
