Will Toy Story be coming to Netflix US?
For the foreseeable future that will be a resounding no. As many can suspect the obvious reason is because of the launch of Disney+ later in 2019. Toy Story 4 will make its streaming debut on the service.
Netflix and Disney previously had a licensing contract in place but this came to an end on the 1st of January, 2019. All cinematic from this date onwards will not be available to stream on Netflix.
Will Toy Story be coming to Netflix in other regions?
Fans of Toy Story may be waiting for quite some time before Toy Story 4 arrives in particular regions.
First of all in the United Kingdom Sky and Now TV will receive Toy Story 4 first. Assuming Disney+ doesn’t launch in the UK before Toy Story 4 leaves Sky, then Netflix would be the next logical home. Don’t expect it to arrive anytime soon as Sky has the license to stream for a lengthy amount of time. The film won’t arrive until the Spring of 2021 at the earliest!
Canada will continue to receive Disney films for the foreseeable future. Subscribers can expect to see Toy Story 4 on Netflix in the Spring of 2020. Toy Story 4 would then be available to stream for 18 months.
The following regions may receive Toy Story 4 :
- South Korea
Once Disney expands Disney+ to audiences worldwide we can expect a shift in titles on Netflix.
