We’ve got some big news binge-watchers: Thanks to a new deal between Disney and Netflix—which has been in the works for years—your list of things to watch is about to get a lot longer.

In a press release, Netflix announced that Disney (which owns several of Hollywood's biggest studios) has officially inked a deal that will bring some of the biggest blockbusters in the world to the streaming platform:

From September onwards, Netflix will become the exclusive US pay TV home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar.

It’s not clear yet just how much of the full catalogs will be available when the deal goes into effect this September, but what is clear is that if you want to watch movies from Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm or Disney on TV, Netflix will be the only place you can do it. The agreement is exclusive, meaning that none of the new titles will be on Hulu or Amazon Prime. Discuss

Disney-Pixar's Finding Dory, the super-anticipated sequel to the incredible Finding Nemo, comes out next month. And this newest trailer offers our closest look at the storyline yet. Hint: it involves a lot of water.


The team behind the upcoming sequel to the alien-invasion blockbuster Independence Day has just released yet another trailer, and this one is basically a five-minute version of the movie.

If you love giant explosions, alien warfare and Jeff Goldblum acting like Jeff Goldblum, then you will want to watch this trailer. Sure, the movie might not win any Oscars, but this new extended look sure is a lot of fun. Discuss

Why make new kids movies when there are so many great old ones just waiting to be remade? Taking cues from recent blockbusters like The Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent, Disney is reimagining more of its classic animated films as live-action adventures. And now, they’ve given us a (very brief) look at their next one: Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson.

The teaser doesn’t offer much in terms of visuals, but it does seem to indicate that the movie will have a darker, slightly scarier tone than the cartoon you remember. The movie hits theaters next March. Discuss

Fans of William Paul Young’s novel The Shack will have to wait a few more months to see the big screen adaptation. According to Deadline, Summit Entertainment has bumped the release date from this November to the week of Ash Wednesday next year. Despite the move to March 2017, according to the site, some early audience tests of the film were well-received.

Sam Worthington (Avatar, Terminator Salvation, MacBeth, Clash of the Titans) stars in the story about a grieving father investigating the death of his young daughter at an abandoned shack in the woods. There, he meets with three individuals representing the Trinity: Jesus (who will be played by Israeli actor Aviv Alush), a woman named Sarayu who represents the Holy Spirit (Sumire Matsubara) and God/Papa who will be played by Octavia Spencer (the Academy Award-winning actress who co-starred in The Help).

The book was relatively controversial among some Christians for it’s metaphorical depictions of God and some of its theology, but became a run-away hit among religious readers: Though it was originally self-published, The Shack has gone on to sell more than 10 million copies. Discuss

Toon Squad goals accomplished. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a sequel to the 1996 basketball adventure comedy, Space Jam, starring Michael Jordan and a bunch of Looney Tunes characters is in the works. But, this time around, NBA star Lebron James will reportedly be the film’s main protagonist. Justin Lin, the director behind four of the Fast & Furious movies, three fan-favorite episodes of Community (as well as a bunch of other stuff you’ve probably seen), will direct, co-write and produce the sequel. Bill Murray, it’s time to lace up those Nikes one more time. Discuss
