Disney Movies Coming to Netflix in 2019

Welcome to your final look at what’s coming to Netflix from Disney throughout 2019. This will include all of the theatrical releases from Disney, Marvel and Star Wars that are due to come out to Netflix US throughout the course of 2019. 

There’s a fair bit to cover and a few caveats with this list so let’s begin.

This list covers all the movies coming to the United States. As you may know, Netflix had a deal with Disney from 2016 to 2019 that meant all new theatrical releases come to Netflix around 9 months after the release in cinemas.

Canadians can expect this list and more to come to Netflix. We’ll do a separate post in early 2019 that’s specifically for Canadians. The Brits can also expect these movies to release in your country but Disney titles come out roughly two and a half years after the release in theatres with Sky taking up the license first.

Remember too that all Disney movies that come to Netflix will leave after a year and a half.

Also, it’s worth noting that the Disney deal only applied to new titles. Older releases will likely continue coming to Netflix but are dealt with on a case by case basis.


Disney Movies Coming to Netflix in 2019

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Theatrical Release:
Confirmed Netflix Release Date: January 9th, 2019

Solo: A Star Wars Story will be the final Star Wars movie to come to Netflix. In total, three have come to Netflix during the course of the Disney deal with those being Rogue One, Episode 8 and soon, Solo.

Solo tells the story of a young Han Solo and how he became the man we know in the sequel trilogy. It shows us how he came to meet Chewbacca as well as Lando too.


Incredibles 2

Theatrical Release: June 15th, 2018
Confirmed Netflix Release: January 30th, 2019

The Incredibles 2 was Pixar’s big movie release of 2018 and while it didn’t do too well with critics, it drove millions out to the cinemas. The movie sees the return of the Parr family 12 years after the original launched to fight new foes.

Of course, this will movie will be the final Pixar movie coming to Netflix after Coco and Cars 3 both arriving as part of the Disney deal.


Ant-Man and The Wasp

Theatrical Release: July 6th, 2018
Confirmed Netflix Release Date: January 29th, 2019

Ant-Man and The Wasp will be the final Marvel movie coming to Netflix. The Ant-Man movie sits outside of the Infinity War storyline (sort of) and ultimately was the final Marvel title to release in 2018. The movie sees Scott Lang under house arrest after the events of the first Ant-Man and his appearance in Civil War.

An all-new villain appears in this title and if you didn’t go to see this movie and loved Infinity War, you’ll definitely want to hang around at the end.


Christopher Robin

Theatrical Release: August 3rd, 2018
Expected Netflix Release: February 2019-April 2019

Netflix has seen the release of some great live-action Disney movies but for most, their most anticipated will be Christopher Robin. The story is centered around one of Disney’s biggest icons, Winnie the Pooh. It takes us back to just after the Second World War where Christopher Robin is now grown up and struggling to balance his work-life balance.

The movie sees the return of many characters you’re familiar with. It’s an absolute treat and Ewan McGregor continues to prove why he’s a global superstar.


The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Theatrical Release: November 21st, 2018
Expected Netflix Release: June 2019 – August 2019

If you’re looking for a Christmas treat in the middle of 2019, then Disney’s big Christmas release for 2018 is The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. The movie stars Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Eugenio Derbez, Matthew Macfadyen and Richard E. Grant. The movie replaced Mulan for its slot this year.


Ralph Breaks the Internet

Theatrical Release: November 21st, 2018
Expected Netflix Release: June 2019 – August 2019

It turns out one of the final Disney movies coming to Netflix, in fact, includes every Disney movie. Wreck-It Ralph was insanely popular when it released back in 2012 and this next movie is set to up the ante by quite a lot. The movie will feature pretty much every iconic Disney character as Ralph gets connected to the internet and goes exploring.


Mary Poppins Returns

Theatrical Release: December 19th, 2018
Expected Netflix Release: July 2019 – September 2019

Mary Poppins will be the final Disney movie coming to Netflix as part of this deal. It doesn’t necessarily spell the end for Disney on Netflix overall, but it certainly is a line in the sand.

It seems appropriate that one of the biggest Disney icons will be the final Netflix release being the return of Mary Poppins. It’s been five decades since the original 1964 release landed on people’s screens and Disney wasn’t the business juggernaut that it is now.


We’ll update this post over the course of the year to keep you up-to-date with all the Disney releases. Let us know in the comments what movie you’re looking forward to in the comments below.
