Corus Entertainment has secured a multi-year agreement with Walt Disney Studios to begin airing the Star Wars film franchise this fall.

Under the terms of the agreement, 11 films from the franchise–including original trilogy titles and yet-to-be-seen theatrical releases–will make their debuts on Corus’ networks including Global, Showcase, W Network, ABC Spark, YTV, Disney Channel, Disney XD and more, beginning this fall.

However, the installment that launched the franchise Star Wars: A New Hope, will come to Corus through a separate deal with Twentieth Century Fox.

Broadcast details for all films will be revealed at a later date.
