Will The Bad Guys Be On Disney+?
The short is no The Bad Guys will not be on Disney+. That is because Disney had no involvement with the film.
It was made by Dreamworks and distributed by Universal Pictures, who also own the Peacock streaming platform. So all NBC Universal movies will be streamed on that channel.
That said, Peacock does have deals with other streaming services around the world. So while the films won’t be on Disney, you will still be able to watch them elsewhere in your country.
