In 2013, Netflix announced a record-breaking deal between themselves and Disney which would mean that brand new theatrical releases of Disney movies would release on Netflix soon after their DVD release instead of going to the previous contract holder Starz. The deal is expected to last at least three years although the exact length is not known. Also, what will happen to these titles after the deal lapses are yet to be known? We’ve created a table of all the Disney titles that are coming in the next few years and attached a predicted Netflix release date.
