Disney+ may be launching this fall, but that doesn’t mean all of the Disney movies on Netflix are going to disappear like Thanos snapped them out of existence. The deal for Netflix to offer new releases from Disney, and its subsidiaries, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm/’Star Wars’ was signed back in 2016, and Netflix was given exclusive streaming rights for a set period of time, and that agreement will remain intact, so certain new releases will remain on Netflix past the launch of Disney+.

But, at the same time, some titles will vanish before the launch. If you want to stream ‘Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2’, you only have a couple of days, as it leaves Netflix on May 5. The next picture to go will be ‘Cars 3’ on July 31.
Here is the full list of tiles and when they will cease to be available on Netflix:
Cars 3: July 31, 2019
Coco: November 29, 2019
Incredibles 2: July 30, 2020
Star Wars: The Last Jedi: December 26, 2019
Solo: A Star Wars Story: July 9, 2020
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: May 5, 2019
Thor: Ragnarok: December 6, 2019
Black Panther: March 4, 2020
Avengers: Infinity War: June 25, 2020
Ant-Man and the Wasp: July 29, 2020
The cut off for Disney movies going to Netflix was 2018, so anything released after that is being held for Disney+.
The titles that do remain on Netflix after the launch of Disney+ will not automatically port over after leaving Netflix. Anything that “expires” before the launch, like ‘Guardians 2’, may be available on Disney+’s day of launch, but afterward, there will be a short gap between a title leaving Netflix and resurfacing on Disney+.
Disney has already stated that some of their recent hits, like ‘Captain Marvel’, will be available when their service launches.
This deal only pertains to newer releases. Catalog titles have their own agreements, the terms of which were undisclosed.
Disney+ has already announced a slew of original product to entice folks to subscribe. Does the exclusive availability of theatrical releases make this service more appealing to you?
