Announced today by the streaming video company, Netflix has snagged the exclusive rights to stream new films from companies such as Disney, Lucasfilm, Pixar and Marvel.

As detailed in the Netflix Media Center, this deal will start during September 2016 and run for multiple years.

Of course, Netflix subscribers will have to wait until after the release of digital versions and physical discs, like Blu-ray and Ultra HD, in order to access the content over streaming video.

Hypothetically, Disney could have developed a platform like HBO GO and force consumers to subscribe to yet another streaming service, specifically to access an exclusive library of content.

Beyond the licensing deal, Netflix also announced a barrage of films that will hit the streaming service over the summer months.

During July, Netflix will be adding The Big Short, a Netflix original film Brahman Naman and older films such as Back to The Future and Lethal Weapon.
