Disney to Remove All Movies From Netflix as It Launches Its Own Streaming Service


Butter your popcorn and settle into your favorite spot on the couch: It's time to binge some of your favorite Disney movies on Netflix before they're removed from the streaming service.

Disney is releasing its own streaming platform in late 2019 called Disney+. That means Mickey Mouse and friends-including characters from the Star Wars and Marvel franchises-will be leaving Netflix for good. However, you still have months to reminisce with classics like "101 Dalmatians."

What Else Can You Expect on Disney+?

No matter how you feel about this year's upcoming Disney reboots and sequels, you won't find them on Netflix. Disney+ will be the exclusive streaming service to host upcoming films such as "Toy Story 4," "Frozen 2" and the live-action reboot of "The Lion King," after the movies' theatrical releases.

Plus, Disney finalized its $71 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox on March 20. This means some of Fox's most popular shows, including "This Is Us" and "Modern Family," will be available on Disney+ as well.
