With three months away from the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney and Lucasfilm have flooded our shelves full of Star Wars merchandise such as clothing, hats, house hold items and of course toys, but its not stopping there. Disney and Lucasfilm look to bring the first six Star Wars films to Netflix. Now this makes sense since back in 2012 Disney signed an exclusive deal with Netflix to bring its content exclusively to Netflix starting in 2016 for new releases, but not their back catalog.
“The companies announced today that Netflix will become the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated feature films from the Walt Disney Studios. Netflix will receive access to the movies after they’re made available for sale and rental.”
Thanks to Extreamist who shared the findings after they dug around Netflix and discovered placeholder pages for The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.
