Disney+ Gave Us A Taste of Their Gigantic Catalogue And Netflix Didn't Like It

Dear Netflix, although you sometimes cancel the series we love, we don't want to break up with you. But we have to talk, because Disney+ is making eyes at us and we want to know what you would think about having an open relationship.

The jokes that Mickey Mouse owns half the planet aren't so funny anymore, because they're almost true. The streaming service Disney+ is proving to be one of Netflix's biggest rivals.

With so many franchises in its hands - all beloved by the audience - the company has an impressive catalogue of its own, one that would certainly shake the competition.

Disney+ has just started an Instagram account to remind us that it will be available on November 12th (in the US, Canada and New Zealand; the rest of the world will have different dates).

To add to the excitement, the service shared some images of to the films it will have on its catalogue. They were smart, choosing titles that appeal to different audiences.

Like Star Wars fans who like watching Kylo Ren break things...

To those who are addicted to the animated classics (like 98.9% of the world's population)...

To people who love to watch animal documentaries...

To those who love Pixar with all their hearts (and would like to change their address to 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney)...

And for those of you who know that the "T" on Gabriella's necklace is not for "tacos", "turkey", or "tuna".

Some people question whether they will switch from Netflix to Disney+ or subscribe to both. It's not an easy decision because - as they announced on social media - it will have series and movies from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

The message Disney used to present its streaming service caught people's attention, because it was an elegant, subtle and kind way of telling Netflix: "Excuse me, I'm not lending you my toys anymore." With that loss to the competition and at a more affordable cost, it's clear that we'll still see a lot of Mickey for a while.

Some of the most beloved stories in the world are moving to a new home.

What do you think? Do you prefer Netflix, Disney+ or both?
