Disney’s latest release, A Wrinkle in Time will be heading to Netflix thanks to the Disney agreement and will likely be here by the end of the year. Here’s what we know about the movie, when it’ll release on Netflix and whether or not you should wait or go to see in the cinemas.
This high-budget Disney film was released in theaters on March 9, and so far has seen mixed reviews from critics as well as disappointing revenue. Unless there’s a particular star that draws you to the movie, we’d recommend waiting for this one to land on Netflix.
It's a mixture of Tomorrowland and Interstellar as it attempts to make the 1962 novel with the same title into a fun, family-friendly science-fiction adventure. The film also deals with complex themes. The cast includes Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Pena, Levi Miller and Storm Reid.
Given A Wrinkle in Time released between 2016 and 2019, it’s automatically included in the Disney agreement with Netflix.
It’s taken most Disney movies around 6-8 months to arrive on Netflix which means we’ll be seeing A Wrinkle in Time arrive on Netflix in September 2018 at the earliest.
Netflix Canada is the only other Netflix region we can say with authority that it’ll be streaming. It will arrive in Canada around the same time that it arrives in the United States. Netflix UK receives Disney films, but they are usually released a few years later.
As you may know, Netflix is losing the Disney contract meaning that once the title has been on the service for a year and a half it’ll then leave. Keep up-to-date with the latest news about all Disney titles leaving here.
A Wrinkle in Time is expected to be the fifth Disney movie to release on Netflix this year with Cars 3, Pirates of the Caribbean or Coco already on Netflix or planning to be before A Wrinkle in Time.
