Disney Is Ending Its Netflix Deal And Launching A Competing Streaming Service

Disney is ending its distribution deal with Netflix and launching an independent streaming service with an expected launch date of 2019. The company made the announcement during an earnings report on Tuesday.

The new platform will be the home for all Disney movies beginning in 2019, meaning Netflix will continue to host the titles it already has, like Moana, Finding Dory, or, um, Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch, not to mention certain Marvel films and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, until then. It’s a major blow for Netflix, but great news for Disney fans. The company is notorious for its “Vault” policy, but the new service could have an unprecedentedly deep archive, with everything from cinematic classics like Beauty and the Beastand Pinocchio to early ’90s TV fare like Goof Troop and Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers.
