Netflix has evolved into a powerhouse, with its large slate of original programming. From its established hits such as Orange Is The New Black, House of Cards, and Black Mirror to new buzz-worthy shows like Stranger Things, The Crown, and One Day At A Time (an update on the classic show that is a down-to-earth sitcom with a lot of heart – seriously, highly recommended!), the company is now competing with the likes of HBO. Although its original series receive most of the attention these days, a recent deal with Disney brings fresh films from the studio to the streaming service – that includes Finding Dory, which is now available to watch.
In 2012, Disney agreed to a deal which would allow all its feature films to stream exclusively on Netflix soon after the films’ DVD/Blu-ray release. The terms of the deal concerning new feature films started in 2016, which has allowed relatively fresh films like Captain America: Civil War and Zootopia to be seen by millions in what has become the most convenient way possible.
Finding Dory is the first Pixar film to be released on the service under the terms of the Disney/Netflix deal. That also means that this year’s Pixar films, Cars 3 and Coco, will likely hit Netflix in early and mid-2018. Those who have a Netflix subscription will be able to stream these new(ish) Disney films over and over to spot all those pesky easter eggs we are used to seeing from Pixar, Disney Animation, Marvel, and Lucasfilm.
