Disney Movies Leaving Netflix in 2020

Kasey Moore What's on Netflix Avatar

Disney announced it would not be renewing its contract with Netflix that started in 2016. The deal elapsing will see some massive Disney titles leave Netflix as well as titles from the Marvel and Star Wars lineup. 

Below, we have the full list of Disney, Marvel and Star Wars movies and when they’re due to depart in 2020.

For those unaware, any movie released in theaters by Disney between January 1st, 2016 and December 31st, 2018 arrived on Netflix around 8-9 months. Exactly 1 year and 6 months later, the title departs which is how we’re able to produce this list below.

In that case, we’ve got the definitive list of those Star Wars, Disney and Marvel movies and when we’re expecting them to leave.

Updated (July 1st, 2019): we now know all the release dates for the remaining Disney movies coming to Netflix so this is now a definitive list. 

Note: This only includes theatrical releases from 2016 onwards. Other Disney movies are dealt with on a title by title basis but are all expected to expire eventually.

Does this apply to Netflix in Canada?

The removal dates apply to both Netflix in Canada and the United States. Canada, however, is expected to continue to get Disney movies after the ones mentioned on this list.

Will older Disney movies be removed from Netflix?

They may be removed but it will not be because of this contract elapsing. All other Disney movies are dealt with Netflix on a movie by movie basis but given that Disney will be throwing its weight behind its new streaming service it’s likely that some of them will be removed.
