For those who have already seen the film, the release offers the chance to enjoy it from the comfort of your own couch.

The news emerged from Disney’s shareholder meeting in Chicago, during which CEO Bob Iger also teased the upcoming spinoff film Star Wars: Rogue One, which is essentially the franchise’s version of a heist movie. That film is due out December 16, 2016, while the Rian Johnson-directed Star Wars: Episode VIII is set for a December 15, 2017 release.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be available exclusively on Netflix Canada this year. Netflix won’t be streaming the title in the U.S. thanks to the terms of an exclusive partnership between Disney and the premium cable channel Starz.
