Ahead of its March debut in Australia and New Zealand, Netflix has inked a deal with Disney that sees the SVOD service picking up the streaming rights for a host of Disney movies and TV shows.
The deal includes content from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm.
Australian and New Zealand members will be able to watch Disney/Pixar films like Cars, Monsters Inc. and UP, as well as shows like Jake and the Never Land Pirates from Disney Junior and Good Luck Charlie from Disney Channel.
The service will also offer for Australian members Disney’s Frozen, Saving Mr. Banks and Muppets Most Wanted, as well as Marvel blockbusters like Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
In the months following launch, Netflix will also have streaming rights to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Maleficent and Big Hero 6.
This deal expands on the SVOD’s existing global relationship with Disney. Most recently, Netflix struck an exclusive deal with the House of Mouse for its titles in the Canadian market.
