Thor: Ragnarok starring Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Cate Blanchett is leaving Netflix and coming to Disney Plus in December 2019.
We have some good news and some bad news regarding Thor: Ragnarok, and it depends on which streaming service you use. Thor: Ragnarok is leaving Netflix on Wednesday, Dec. 4. The streaming service just announced the news along with the list of new movies and shows coming to Netflix in December 2019.
Thor: Ragnarok, at that point, should make the jump to Disney Plus on the same day. There, you’ll be able to watch Ragnarok with the first two Thor movies, Thor and Thor: Dark World.
Under Taika Waititi’s direction, Ragnarok is the best of the bunch, and it’s one of my favorite Marvel movies ever. It features one of the best villains the MCU has ever seen, Hela, played by Cate Blanchett.
In the film, Hela, Thor and Loki’s older sister, returns to Asgard following Odin’s death and takes over. Thor and Loki end up on a garbage planet and need to find a way home to save the day. There’s much more to it than that, but that’s the gist.
Waititi and most of the cast of Ragnarok will be back for Thor: Love and Thunder, a fourth film of the franchise. It will be released on Nov. 5, 2021.
Obviously, if you have Netflix AND Disney Plus, you don’t need to worry about missing out on Thor: Ragnarok. You can just watch the film on Disney Plus once it leaves Netflix.
When Ragnarok leaves Netflix, there will still be three MCU movies available to stream: Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Those movies will remain there until they eventually leave and head to Disney Plus. Of those three movies, Black Panther will leave the streaming service first.
When Ragnarok is added to Disney Plus, it will join 17 MCU movies available to stream now, including Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, and all the Captain America movies.
Will you be watching Thor: Ragnarok before it leaves Netflix? Will you be watching the movie on Disney Plus? Or, both? I’m watching it on both streaming services! The film will return to Netflix in several years.
