In a move that will no doubt stir up some controversy, Bob Iger announced today that the Walt Disney Company has decided to move Marvel and Star Wars films from Netflix to its upcoming streaming service which is set to debut at some point in 2019.
This announcement has put to rest speculation on the future of these titles after Disney announced last month that they are developing a Disney-branded direct-to-customers streaming service. The service would include Disney and Pixar titles which would also be moved from Netflix. As part of Disney’s new venture, plans are also in the works to produce at least four original movies per year as well as original series and made-for-TV movies.
No details have been released as of yet regarding official subscription prices.
