The agreement covers new Sony films that debut in theatres between 2022 to 2026, that includes Marvel’s ‘Morbius,’ Brad Pitt-thriller ‘Bullet Train’, and more.
Disney and Sony Pictures have signed a multi-year ‘content licensing agreement’ that will bring new Sony theatrical releases, starting with its 2022 films, to Disney-owned platforms.
Disney also secured rights to offer older Sony films, including Jumanji and Hotel Transylvania, much sooner. The company said it will add a significant number of Sony titles to Hulu starting in June.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
The arrangement means Disney will be able to offer new Sony movies, including any new instalments in Marvel’s Spider-Man and Venom series, starting in 2023. First, they will play in theatres and be offered on DVD and video-on-demand. Next, they will head to Netflix for an exclusive 18-month period before going to Disney+ or other Disney platforms.
The agreement covers new Sony films that debut in theatres between 2022 to 2026. That is scheduled to include Marvel’s Morbius, best-selling book adaptation Where the Crawdads Sing, Brad Pitt-thriller Bullet Train and another instalment in the Bad Boys comedy series.
Netflix reached a deal with Sony earlier this month.
