Star Wars Films May Not Stream Unitl 2024

Star Wars Streaming and Cable Rights Targeted By Disney

Walt Disney Co.is suffering from seller's remorse. However, the media landscape is rapidly changing, and studios like Disney are increasingly interested in retaining the rights to their films to make them available on their own services. To complicate matters further, a separate deal was cut with 20th Century Fox for the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope, Variety reported at the time.

The cases were from 2009 and 2014 and span two counties - Poweshiek and Marion, the television station reported. He claimed that law enforcement asked him on Thursday to take a polygraph test but he refused to do so.


With Disney's upcoming streaming service, the company was looking to buy back the rights to the films. Disney's service will launch in 2019 and will include a live-action Star Wars series from Jon Favreau, a new season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and more. The deal not only encompasses the Original Trilogy from 1977-1983 and Prequel Trilogy from 1999-2005, but also the current films from the Disney years (Force Awakens, Last Jedi, Rogue One, Solo) up-to and including anything now in production through 2024. Turner, which owns cable networks such as TNT and TBS and is part of the telecommunications giant AT&T, paid around $275 million for the rights. It also wants the freedom to offer "Star Wars" movies on the service at will, one person said. Although there will be new Star Wars content, fans might think twice about subscribing if they're more interested in the older films. I can't tell you, but if I had to guess I'd say they want people to watch the movies on their cable stations.
