Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for the streaming service in exchange for me posting once a month about the service. All opinions are my own.
September 20th is a magical day. Since early spring, I’ve patiently waited. And waited. And waited.
What have I been waiting for? Simple. Disney on Netflix!
In May, Netflix announced a huge deal they made with Disney and Disney’s subsidiaries (Lucasfilm, Pixar, and Marvel). Starting in September, Netflix would hold exclusive U.S. rights to all Disney movies (including the subsidiary companies). This news thrilled me! While I enjoy streaming TV shows that I love on Netflix, I also love watching movies.
You might think I was waiting, though, for September 1. In theory, maybe, but, in actuality, I was waiting for the first movie from one of the Disney companies to make it on Netflix. That movie and day is now! Today, Zootopia is available to stream! After my daughters get home from school, I think we will have to have an afternoon viewing of this fantastic film.
While this deal does not include past releases, I am hopeful that they might be added some day as well. Until then, though, I’m building my wish list of Disney, Lucasfilm, Marvel, and Pixar movies that I can’t wait to watch at home with a bowl of buttered popcorn (especially since I can’t always make it to the movie theater).
Recent Releases (Coming Soon)
The Jungle Book
Captain America: Civil War*
Future Releases (Not Yet at the Theater)
Guardians of the Galaxy 2
Beauty and the Beast
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Star Wars: Episodes VIII & IX
Born in China
Of course, those are the movies that I know will make it on Netflix someday soon. If I could have my way and watch any Disney, Pixar, Marvel, or Lucasfilm movie, my top ten choices are as follows:
Ant-Man (Paul Rudd is a Jayhawk after all!)
Okay, all Avenger and X-Men movies!
Also, all Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies.*
Midnight Madness (Bet you didn’t expect that one, did you?)*
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids*
Saving Mr. Banks
*These are movies I’ve seen before but can’t wait to see again!
