Five animated Disney series will now be available on Netflix’s subscription-based streaming service in the U.S. The multi-year, non-exclusive licensing deal features Disney XD’s Tron: Uprising, Disney Channel’s Jake and the Never Land Pirates, and preschool favorites Handy Manny, Special Agent Oso and JoJo’s Circus.

Last December, Netflix landed the exclusive pay TV rights to Disney Studio movies including Marvel’s superhero pictures, Pixar’s animated features and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars.

“This deal extends on the incredible line-up of Disney content already available for our members,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.

In February, Netflix partnered with DreamWorks Animation to create an original animated series for the service based on the forthcoming summer family film, Turbo. The content in Netflix’s children’s section is kept commercial-free and carries ratings and reviews from Common Sense Media, a non-profit organization that provides information to parents seeking help in evaluating their children’s media choices.
