Pete’s Dragon, The BFG, Roger Rabbit and More Disney Movies Coming to Netflix in March 2017

Pete's Dragon 2016 | Disney Movies on Netflix

Disney continues to add new movies to Netflix every month, and March 2017 is no exception. Next month the streaming service will offer newer releases such as Pete’s Dragon (2016) and The BFG, as well the classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The latest Marvel Studios Netflix series, Iron Fist, also debuts in March.

In February Disney dumped dozens of titles onto the streaming service including The Jungle Book, Zootopia, Finding Dory, Brother Bear, Tarzan, Lilo and Stich, Pirates of the Caribbean and many, many more.

Is Disney buying Netflix?

There’s been a rumor circulating for months that Disney is looking to acquire Netflix and that saturating the service with Disney titles is just the first step in the process. And let’s not forget that Marvel Studios has made Netflix their home, with several original series including Daredevil.

It would be a smart move, for sure. Netflix is by far the most used streaming service on the planet, with practically everyone with access to an internet connection using it. Their original series like Orange is the New Black and Stranger Things have become pop culture phenomenons on par with network shows, and there could easily be some tight integration between Netflix, ABC, Disney Movies Anywhere and even their other digital divisions like floundering YouTube content creator Maker Studios. Netflix has already won the streaming television space, and an acquisition would be much cheaper and faster than trying to compete with them.

More classic Disney content on Netflix?

Years ago it was rumored that Disney was going to start a “Disney Vault” subscription service that would give subscribers access to thousands of classic Disney movies and television programming, including long lost series, made-for-TV-movies and maybe even “buried” films like Song of the South.

That never seemed to materialize, but perhaps Disney’s relationship would reach a point where they would consider it. Who wouldn’t like to access years worth of old Disneyland TV episodes, or the vintage Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or even some early Disney Channel favorites like Welcome to Pooh Corner or The Edison Twins? I know I would!

For now, though, we have to be content with the Disney films that have been released… are there are many of them!
