Apart from the login issues that some subscribes faced when Disney+ was launched there was the issue of missing movies. The reason why many people joined the streaming service was to be able to watch some of the popular “Star Wars” and Marvel movies that the company owns, but they were not available. The company has now revealed when some of these movies will be added to the available content for the fans.

Two movies are scheduled to be added next month. “Thor: Ragnarok” will be available from Dec. 5 and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will be released on Dec. 26, Screen Rant reported.

Four other movies that have been confirmed for release next year are “Black Panther” on March 4, “Avengers: Infinity War” on June 25, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” on July 9, and “Ant-Man and the Wasp” on July 29.

The reason why these movies haven’t been released on the streaming service at the launch is because of Disney’s deal with Netflix, and the movies are available on the latter’s platform. As and when the individual deals of these movies expire, they will be available on the new Disney+ platform.

Fans will need to download the movies they want to watch repeatedly in the future. According to the deal between the two companies, the rights to all the movies released between January 2016 and December 2018 will go to Netflix in 2026. However, the subscribers who download the films on Disney+ will be allowed to keep the movies and watch them whenever they want.

Another major franchise that will not be available on Disney+ is “Spider-Man.” Sony holds the distribution rights to the solo movies of the character, and that means the movies will not be available on the streaming platform, Screen Rant reported. Fans will be able to see Tom Holland’s character in other movies like “Avengers” and “Captain America: Civil War.”
