Although Disney announced news to pull all its content from Netflix last year, details on the streaming service the iconic entertainment giant proposed to introduce itself have remained pretty scarce.
The Atlantic reported that the service, which it’s dubbed Disneyflix for now, is set to launch in 2019. It will supposedly include Disney shows and movies, new and old alongside every film within the Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar and Disney Animation categories. You’ll also be able to view programmes from the Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD channels. Along with this, it’s rumored that Disney will also be experimenting with its own original, short-form content on the new platform.
One thing’s for sure, when this new service finally becomes available it will be a strong contender for Netflix‘s binge-watching throne, especially with Disney’s plan to acquire 21st Century Fox still in the works.
