Over the past several years, Disney fans who also subscribe to Netflix have been spoiled thanks to the distribution deal the two companies struck in 2012. Since then, Netflix has been the first home for every new Disney movie — including Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars — just months after they leave cinemas. But with Disney's own streaming service called "Disney+" on the horizon, that deal is rapidly coming to an end. However, it isn't over yet, and among the new movies and shows on Netflix this week is the final new Star Wars film to hit the site as part of the original Disney deal.
Solo: A Star Wars Storydebuted in theaters in May of last year, and it's set to arrive on Netflix on Jan 9. The Han Solo origin story is the most recent Star Wars film, and the last until Star Wars: Episode IX hits theaters in December of this year. By then, Disney+ will be up and running and the idea of Star Wars movies on Netflix will be nothing but a distant memory. But that day has not yet arrived, meaning Star Wars fans can still reap the benefits of the old Disney-Netflix deal by enjoying Solo.
After you've watched Solo, it will then be time to come to terms with the Star Wars-free future of Netflix, and you can do so by checking out one of the seven Netflix originals also debuting this week; all of which are listed below.
