In a rare major shift in Disney’s licensing strategy, Disney has announced that the “Twilight Saga” is going to be coming to Disney+ in Canada, the UK, Australia and many other countries on May 1st 2024.

The “Twilight” saga consists of five films: “Twilight,” “Twilight: New Moon,” “Twilight: Eclipse,” and “Twilight: Breaking Dawn,” Parts 1 and 2. All of them are based on the book series by Stephenie Meyer.

This film series stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson and tells the story of 17-year-old Bella Swan who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington to live with her father, and becomes drawn to Edward Cullen, a pale, mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away. But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together…even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires.

The first film was released in November 2028 and, between the five movies, grossed over $5.28 billion at the box office worldwide.

Unlike in the United States, where Disney licenses lots of third-party content for Hulu, most of which is now available on Hulu, On Disney+, generally, Disney doesn’t tend to license too many movies it doesn’t own on Disney+ globally, with the exception of locally made content to help boost the localised content to fulfil regional legal quotas.
