If you haven’t seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story since its theatrical debut, then now is your chance? Netflix will show the movie starting in July! No specific date was given other than the month, so the exact date is still up in the air.
Great news for Star Wars fans though. This is the first Star Wars film (outside of the The Clone Wars movie) to hit the streaming provider.
As HelloGiggles can exclusively reveal, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be available on Netflix here in the U.S. of A. starting in July — date still TBD.
Rogue One coming to the streaming platform is just the first step — and the first tile! — in a beautiful partnership between Netflix and Disney (and Lucasfilm). The streaming juggernaut has a first window rights deal with Disney, which basically means that Disney titles get to stream on their platform before anywhere else. That’s why we’ve seen more and more titles like Moana, Doctor Strange, and Jungle Book pop up in our Netflix recommendations, and hey, we’re not complaining.
