Netflix extends licensing deal with Universal's animated films


By Ray Ampoloquio July 14, 2021

Netflix and Universal just came to an agreement that will extend the streaming platform's already existing licensing deal.

This new partnership grants Netflix users in the United States access to all the upcoming animated films from the studio.

This will include highly anticipated sequels such as Minions: The Rise of Gru, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, as well as The Bad Guys.

The aforementioned films will now head straight to Netflix following a 4-month window on Peacock.

The streaming giant is elated knowing that the deal allows it to expand its library of children's animated films.

The deal with UFEG also gives Netflix access to live-action movies from the studio for roughly four years after they premiere in theaters.

As Netflix finds itself being the targeted of every other streaming platform, it makes sense that it's trying to divest.

On top of the rumored video game venture, Netflix will welcome a slate of video game series' and films for the rest of 2021 and beyond.

Here's to hoping that these platforms continue putting out quality content.

This way, we all can continue enjoying access to better movies and TV shows right from the comforts of our homes and on the go.
