Bolstering its hold on the VOD market, Netflix announced today that the company has signed an exclusive deal with Disney for subscription TV rights to all its live-action and animated films starting in 2016. The deal includes Disney, Walt Disney Animation, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, and Disneynature; Lucasfilm was not announced as part of the the deal, but Disney’s $4.05 billion acquisition of that company has not yet been completed.

The agreement also includes Disney’s direct-to-video releases beginning in 2013, and a catalog deal that brings select Disney classics like Dumbo and Pocahontas into Netflix’s VOD inventory.
