Netflix Starts to Attack HBO in September with Exclusive Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar Releases

The online video streaming service announced a new age in online video streaming, beginning in September.

If you have been disappointed at Netflix's movie inventory, as it lacked recent popular releases, this will change in September. A mega deal with Disney will make Netflix the exclusive US pay TV home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar.

This exclusivity includes HBO, who had a hand on getting new movie releases first after the release on Blu-ray and digital download. This is a huge milestone for Netflix, costing them reportedly paying up to $300 million for the exclusive rights to Disney. The rule breaking deal was made 4 years ago. 

Netflix has not yet announced which Disney movies will be the first to appear on Netflix in September. The company has though released the list of releases for the summer. In June Sci-fi adventure classics Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park: The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3 hit the catalog and in July The Big Short and classic franchises Back to The Future and Lethal Weapon are added.

In August Netflix will premiere The Little Prince, an animated film based on the beloved children’s book, featuring the voices of Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Ricky Gervais, Marion Cotillard and James Franco.

Also appearing in August is The Fast & The Furious, The Wedding Planner and St. Vincent. In September new and exclusive Netflix Original movies including Mascots from the master of low-key comedy Christopher Guest (Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind) and War Machine, from acclaimed Australian director David Michod and starring Brad Pitt, in the serio-comic tale of the U.S. military adventure in Afghanistan are going to be released.
