Will The Northman be on Netflix in the USA?
Sure, however it received’t be coming anytime quickly. In truth, for those who solely use Netflix, you’ve received years to attend earlier than it turns into obtainable.
The explanation it’s coming to Netflix is because of an expansive deal Netflix struck with Common in 2021 which implies that all Common films come to Netflix albeit with live-action films coming a lot later after a theatrical launch.
Right here’s the a part of the newly struck deal that would come with The Northman.
“As a part of the deal, Netflix may also license rights to the total Animated and Dwell Motion slate from UFEG about 4 years after launch in addition to rights to pick titles from Common’s huge film library.”
