Disney has signed a deal with Netflix to stream classic Disney films directly into homes. The first wave of titles has arrived on the service.
Update: More titles have appeared on the service, and we've added them to the list below, as well as to our Disney-on-Netflix page.
As of this writing, Netflix has no "Disney" category set up, nor any way to easily see a complete list of Disney films they've made available for streaming. Hopefully, this will be remedied in the near future.
In the meantime, I've dug around through the company's search engine and various categories to bring you this list of Disney titles that have recently made Netflix their home:
Alice in Wonderland
Atlantis: The Lost Empire
The Fox and the Hound
The Great Mouse Detective
James and the Giant Peach
Mater's Tall Tales
The Muppet Movie
The Nightmare Before Christmas
The Reluctant Dragon
The Rescuers Down Under
The Tigger Movie
Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure
Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue
Tinkerbell: Secret of the Wings
Tarzan and Jane
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally
101 Dalmatians (live-action)
I'll Be Home For Christmas
One Magic Christmas
The Brave Little Toaster to the Rescue
The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars
Phineas and Ferb: The Movie
Phineas and Ferb
Jake and the Never Land Pirates
Jo Jo's Circus
Special Agent Oso
I haven't included some recent Disney Channel Films and "Buddy" talking puppy adventures. Please check out our dedicated and continually-updated Disney-On-Netflix page, which includes some Disney titles which were on the service (and remain there) before this recent deal.
Netflix has just made the best move in the company's history. Let's see where they take it from here.
UPDATE NOTE: 4/4/13 - Hopefully we'll see something more added soon, but so far this month, all we've gotten is Treasure Buddies and Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3.
Eeesh. I hope I'm not offending any talking dog fans by not adding them
to the list. On the plus (though Non-Disney) side, Netflix has added a
ton of Cartoon Network content, including Season One of Adventure Time. Now, if they'll just add the excellent CN series Dragons: Riders of Berk, we'll forgive them for the Chihuahuas.
UPDATE NOTE: 5/10/13 - No
significant news to report so far this month in the Disney classic
motion pictures department, but Netflix is bolstering their children's
TV series offerings with the addition of Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Tron Uprising.
UPDATE NOTE: 5/18/13 - Three more Disney Jr. series have been added: The CGI Handy Manny, the clay-animation Jo Jo's Circus and the more recent Special Agent Oso.
