Sky has signed a multi-year rights deal with Disney that means it'll show the new Star Wars film next summer, just nine months after its theatrical release.

The deal also grants Sky the rights to films like 'Inside Out' and 'The Good Dinosaur' nine months after their cinema releases. And it'll mean more Disney Channels series are available to Sky customers through catch-up and on-demand.

It also includes ABC Studios primetime drama and comedy series like 'Scandal', 'Grey's Anatomy' and 'Scrubs' through Sky Box Sets.

Sky said that both firms have a long history of collaboration.

"Sky and Disney have been working together for almost 25 years," said Gary Davey, managing director of content at Sky. "Our collaboration has continued to grow and the launch of the exclusive Sky Movies Disney channel two years ago has been a huge success. This new agreement means our customers can continue to enjoy the biggest blockbusters like 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and 'Inside Out' before they are available on any other online subscription service. They also get access to a great portfolio of family channels and a growing on-demand library of amazing shows and films which we know they love."
