Disney cuts the cord with NetflixSay goodbye to Marvel, Star Wars and Disney movies on Netflix in 2019 when Disney launches its own streaming service. Can Netflix's Millarworld purchase help fill the hole?
Bad news parents. Disney princesses are parting ways with Netflix. Disney announced it's going to launch it's own streaming service in 2019. ANd when that happens, Disney content will be gone from Netflix. That includes Star Wars And Marvel movies. It hasn't been even a year since Disney's deal with Netflix began. Not every Disney movie is on there. But there's more than a hundred. A mix of new movies like Moana and Zootopia, iconic classics like Who Framed Roger Rabbit and the Parent Trap And some obscure titles like the brave little toaster goes to Mars. There is one exception to this, Disney's CEO Bob Iger told CNBC that the Netflix original Marvel shows like Jessica Jones and The Defenders, will stay on Netflix. Topics on those shows were a bit dark and gritty anyway, not exactly a family friendly story for a new streaming service It seems Netflix saw this coming. A day before Disney's announcement, Netflix said it is buying Miller World. That's the common publisher behind title like Kingsman, Kickass, and Wanted. So to feel it's Disney's Pea-sized hole, it can poke around Millarworld for ideas. The Disney brand and streaming service in 2019, will have live action and animated movies, and it's gonna laugh with Toy Story 4, the sequel to Frozen, and a live action Lion King movie. There's also gonna be original content just for the service, but separate from that, Disney is gonna first launch an ESPN sports video streaming service next year. That's gonna feature 10,000 live region, national, and international games a year including baseball, hockey, soccer, tennis, and college sports. I'm Bridget Carey, for more details head to CNET.COM
