Disney Looking To Get Back “Star Wars” TV Broadcasting Rights From TBS And TNT

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

With Disney’s upcoming streaming service about to premier sometime next year, Disney seems to be regretting the sale of the TV broadcasting rights for all of the Star Wars films to Turner Broadcasting. The deal that Disney made with Turner back in 2016 will prevent Disney from streaming any Star Wars movies on their streaming service until 2024.

Disney recently made an inquiry about regaining the TV rights for Star Wars, but it appears that Turner was not willing to relent without substantial compensation.

Now that Disney is looking to sell their streaming service to the public, having content like the movies from the Star Wars franchise could be a huge incentive, especially to Star Wars fans.

  • Could those TNT and TBS logos be anymore out of date? The last time we used those logos, the Braves actually won the pennant.

  • Eh. It would be a nice to have not a have to have. I’m a big Star Wars fan. I own all the films in hard copy and digitally. Now if Disney really want’s to make the Star Wars fans pay for the streaming service give us cleaned up versions of the OG Trilogy without all the special edition jazz.

  • If you thought my special editions were trash wait until you see the Rian Johnson editions. Han does not shoot first, he kills Greedo with a jump to lightspeed after pretending that he is out of gas. Classic Star Wars! Plus if its streamed we can fix the movies weekly or even daily

    • You are aware of how weird and sad your obsession and anger with this is, right? Have you thought of putting this behind you and working on interpersonal relationships?
