Just when we were getting used to seeing Disney movies on our favorite streaming service just after they left the theater, Disney is saying goodbye to Netflix in order to start its own streaming service.
Yesterday, Disney's CEO, Bob Iger announced the split. Disney's streaming service is set to be up and running sometime in 2019, and Disney movies will leave Netflix at the end of 2018. That means we have less than a year and a half left with the Disney/Netflix partnership!
The good news? This doesn't mean the complete end of Netflix and Disney. Netflix will continue to stream Marvel TV series along with other Disney productions. The red streaming giant just won't be able to give us our favorite Disney and Pixar films anymore.
Basically, it's time to start working your way through the Disney in the queue.
