Stan has secured a deal with The Walt Disney Company Australia and New Zealand for some of Disney’s live-action and animated films and TV programs to the Australian streaming service from Friday, December 14.
The move to licence the content to Australia comes after Disney recently announced plans to launch its own streaming service Disney+. The Disney streaming service is expected to launch in the US in 2019 yet there are no details about any planned international roll out.

These titles will feature alongside films from the past year including Coco and A Wrinkle in Time.
The partnership will also bring the Marvel universe to Stan including this year’s blockbusters Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, as well as Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3, The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor and Thor: The Dark World, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Ant-Man.
