It's not every day that you wake up and see Disney as a trending topic on social media. This could either be really good news or really bad news. On Tuesday, Aug. 8th, the big dogs at Disney dropped some BIG news that you will either love or hate. Here it goes... Disney is breaking up with Netflix.
According to CNBC, the company revealed its plan to remove its selection from the movie-streaming platform and launching their own direct-to-consumer streaming service in 2019 starting in the U.S. and expanding globally.
Although CEO Bob Iger notes that they had a "good relationship" with Netflix, they have decided to remove every Disney and Pixar title. They will, however, be available on Netflix through the end of 2018. That's almost a year and a half from now, guys. So let's enjoy it while we can!
The new platform, which sounds promising AF, will be home to upcoming films such as Toy Story 4, Frozen 2, and The Lion King live-action. Ok, I'm sold. CNBC notes that "it will also be making a 'significant investment' in exclusive movies and television series for the new platform."
