With Disney concluding their content deal with Netflix and launching their own streaming platform in the U.S., Australian streaming outfit Stan appears to be a co-beneficiary of move as it has just revealed a new deal with the major Hollywood studio. Disney will now offer Stan a huge array of new content from its partner studios, including Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm, with many available for instant streaming just one day after the official announcement, on Friday December 14th.

Announced Pixar titles including 'Coco', the 'Toy Story' trilogy, 'The Incredibles' and 'Finding Nemo'. Disney animated hits like 'Frozen', 'Big Hero 6' and classics like 'The Little Mermaid' will also start streaming on Stan soon. Marvel fans will be delighted in knowing that almost all of the Marvel Universe films, including recent additions 'Black Panther' and 'Avengers: Infinity War', will be available on Stan, while Star Wars fans have 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' and 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' to look forward to.

Disney channel programming, such as 'Star Wars Rebels', 'DuckTales' will also be joining Stan's fast growing library.

Stanwas delighted to be able to announce the new deal, just in time for the holiday period.

"Disney is one of the most iconic entertainment brands globally and we are very proud to be partnering with them to bring a huge collection of their biggest live-action and animated films and TV programmes to
our customers," said Stan CEO Mike Sneesby.
"With hits from across all their biggest franchises including Disney Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm as well as Disney Channels’ TV series and movies, the deal further illustrates Stan’s ongoing commitment to provide our customers with the world’s very best premium entertainment."

Disney also welcomed the new deal.

"We are excited to join with Stan to provide consumers in Australia with even more options when it comes to how and when they enjoy many of the incredible films and television series from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel," said Kylie Watson-Wheeler, the Walt Disney Company Australia and New Zealand senior vice president and managing director.

This latest Disney move seems to indicate that Disney's upcoming streaming service, Disney+, may not make the move down-under as first thought, as this latest deal would nullify all advantage such a service would have in the Australian marketplace.
