January 2019 New Netflix Releases

Welcome to the full list of titles scheduled for release on Netflix in the United States in January 2019 including all the new Disney movies, Netflix Originals, and other titles on the way. 

The first month of the year is going to feel like one big hangover from Christmas but Netflix is going to be bringing plenty of content to comfort your sore heads and your poor wallets.

Please note: one title that’s not on the list but will be releasing in January 2019 is The Punisher season 2.

New Release Highlights

Let’s start off with giving you an overview of our most anticipated titles on the way in January 2019. We won’t be covering the Netflix Originals below as we’ve done that extensively in our January 2019 Originals preview.

New Disney Movies

Although the Disney contract will be coming to an end throughout 2019, that doesn’t mean the tap has been completely turned off. January is going to be bringing some of the big summer releases from Disney to the service from each of the Disney licenses.

From Pixar, we have the long-await sequel to The Incredibles with the Parr families second outing. From the Star Wars license, we’ll be getting the second spin-off movie, Solo. From Marvel, we’ll be getting Ant-Man and the Wasp.

New Movies

The first of the month is bringing a bunch of great movies to the platform. To start, if you’re a fan of Indiana Jones, Netflix is going to be the platform of choice come January 1st. All four movies will drop on the first of the month. Likewise, the two Mummy movies before the modern day adaptation from last year will be streaming.

Beyond that, we’ve got the latest Hotel Transylvania movie on the way as well as favorites such as Pan’s Labyrinth, Black Hawk Down, and The Dark Knight.

New TV Series

With the exception of the Netflix Originals, the TV front is very quiet in January so far.

Our two highlights include American Crime Story which saw its second season in 2018 but didn’t quite get the same attention as the first season. We’ve also got Syfy’s Z-Nation returning for its fifth season.

Keep an eye on our what’s new section for the daily new additions on Netflix.
