Don’t panic just yet… BUT – Disney announced it will be pulling it’s movies from Netflix to launch it’s own streaming service in 2019. Details are pretty vague on the fate of Marvel and Star Wars films, but, reports are Marvel’s slate of TV shows will remain on Netflix.

According to a statement Disney CEO Bob Iger made to CNBC, Disney will be making a “significant investment” in original movies and series that will only be available on the platform.
