Original Star Wars Movies Might Not Launch With Disney’s Streaming Service

Donnie Yen Star Wars Disney

Additionally, Star Wars IP is going to be an apparent cornerstone of Disney's streaming service, which in addition to likely streaming new Star Wars films will also be producing original content, including live-action and animated television shows, based on that galaxy far, far away.

With Disney's upcoming streaming service, the company was looking to buy back the rights to the films. Turner now has the rights to show the movies on its cable networks, including TNT and TBS. Disney has already made inquiries about repurchasing those rights, but Turner is resistant.

It's not clear if the issue here is regaining streaming rights to the prequels and original trilogy (which Turner may have some exclusive rights over) or if Disney merely wants to limit where else you can see these movies in order to solidify their streaming service. They own Marvel, The Muppets, Star Wars, and have decades worth of their own movies. The recent acquisition of Fox finally gave Disney complete control over all the Star Wars films, including A New Hope, allowing the company to finally exploit the iconic franchise more fully.

Studios have long sold rights to their most popular films to TV networks to make more money after movies end their run in theaters.

Disney will be launching their own streaming service next year. In 2016, Turner paid a sum of $275 million for the movies. In any case we have about a year or so to the streaming service is launched, so who knows, perhaps Disney could secure a deal by then. In theory, you'd be able to access popular blockbusters like Avengers: Infinity War, as well as Star Wars movies (new and old) from a single location.
