Disney will pull Marvel and Star Wars films from Netflix

Disney will pull Marvel and Star Wars films from Netflix”

The biggest question for Netflix fans is where does this leave Marvel series such as The Defenders, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones. Now, however, Iger has revealed that Disney will in fact stream the Marvel and Star Wars films on the Disney service.

It was announced a few months ago that Disney would be pulling content from Netflix and forming its own streaming service.

If you were planning on watching a marathon of Lucasfilm and Marvel titles on Netflix anytime soon, know that your plans are officially thwarted.

"It will have the entire output of the studio, animation, live action at Disney, including Pixar, Star Wars and all the Marvel films", Iger said. By 2019, Disney will go all-in with original content and become the exclusive platform for all things House of Mouse.

Disney's offering is one of many online film and TV options coming from entertainment and tech companies, with more in the works.

However, if you are anxious about the Marvel-based TV shows that Netflix has in its lineup, all is well for a while longer.

The news means movies such as Star Wars Episode IX, Avengers 4, and Captain Marvel will all be shown exclusively on Disney's as yet unnamed app.

The company is yet to release a price for the Disney app, and Iger said that the streaming service would feature four to five original films a year.

Investors didn't seem to be cheered by Iger's announcement. It will also include recent seasons of Disney TV series and some short-form original content. Shares were up about 30 cents, or less than 1%, in midday trading.
