The Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie had its run in the theaters and soon it will be available for streaming online. But out of the countless websites online that allow you to stream movies, guess where it is showing up? On Netflix.
You will soon be able to stream Rogue One online starting next month as Netflix will be adding the movie to its library.
Netflix has confirmed the news that it will add Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to its library in July of 2017. You can thank an exclusivity agreement signed by Netflix and Disney back in 2012. Netflix has previously had the Clone Wars series, it even debuted the final season of the series in 2014.
This agreement gives Netflix the right to stream films from Disney and its subsidiaries like Marvel, Pixar, and Lucasfilm in the same period of time that the movies are made available to TV networks. The agreement mentioned that Netflix would get this level of access starting in 2017. That is great news for all of us. This will be the first time that Netflix subscribers in the United States will be able to stream a Star Wars motion picture on one of the world’s most popular online streaming services. Awesome.
