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

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.
