This week Netflix and Walt Disney Studios revealed a multi-year licensing deal.

The deal will bring first-run Disney live-action and animated films to the video streaming service—and, miraculously, the content will be available in Canada, where Netflix has an infamously small library when compared with the US.

Starting in the middle of next year, Netflix subscribers in Canada will be able to watch movies from the likes of Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm roughly eight months after the titles leave the theatre.

Netflix currently has 48 million members in 40 countries, including nearly six million Canadians, who are among the service’s most avid supporters.
