Disney is breaking away from Netflix and plans to launch its own streaming service by the end of 2019, according to its CEO Bob Iger. He says, “Our first priority is going to be reaching our core Disney fan. We want to walk before we run when it comes to volume of content.”
According to NYDN, “Upcoming movies expected to hit the service include the live-action “Dumbo,” “Captain Marvel,” “Frozen 2,” “Toy Story 4” and the 2019 “Avengers” movie, as well as new “Star Wars” movies. Several movies, such as a “Lady and the Tramp” remake and Anna Kendrick’s “Noelle,” will be made exclusively for the streaming service.”
The CEO also teased that Disney’s service will be cheaper than Netflix, which it expects to compete with, but didn’t reveal a set cost. Between Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Apple Music, Youtube Red, Tidal and now Disney, they are all offering video content.
