Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, said the hackers threatened to release the movie in chunks, starting with five minutes and up to 20, unless the ransom is paid in bitcoin.
It’s unclear whether the ransom will be paid.
Last month, a similar attack was launched against Netflix, when a hacker group called The Dark Overlord released unfinished episodes from the fifth season of Orange Is the New Black online.
The Dark Overlord demanded a ransom from Netflix, but the streaming service refused.
Netflix said in a statement that it was “aware of the situation”.
“A production vendor used by several major TV studios had its security compromised and the appropriate law enforcement authorities are involved.”
The Dark Overlord group said in its own statement: “It didn’t have to be this way, Netflix. You’re going to lose a lot more money in all of this than what our modest offer was.”
“We figured a pragmatic business such as yourselves would see and understand the benefits of cooperating with a reasonable and merciful entity like ourselves.”
Season five of Orange Is the New Black is scheduled for release on 9 June.
