Disney streaming service to get 'Star Wars' and Marvel

Iger also narrowed the time frame when the Disney streaming service will launch, saying he expects it will go live in late 2019. Marvel's original TV shows such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and The Defenders, will stay on Netflix-at least for now. On top of that, the Disney-branded app will feature around four to five original TV series, and the studio will produce three to four TV movies specifically for the streaming service.

Netizens weren't too happy when Disney chose to finalize its decision to pull out its Marvel and Star Wars films from Netflix so that it could add the material to its own streaming platform next year. Presumably, this means that the last movie in the current Star Wars trilogy, Episode IX, along with Captain Marvel and Avengers 4, will only be available for streaming through Disney.

When Disney announced its own streaming content service in August and split from Netflix the big question was, "What happens to the Star Wars and Marvel movies?"

Zarrab was arrested in March 2016 and a deputy general manager of Halkbank was charged in March of this year in the same case. Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci defended his predecessor and said USA prosecutors had yet to prove their accusations.


"I have described a very rich, treasure trove of content for this app", Iger said at a media conference in Los Angeles yesterday.

Previously Disney announced the inclusion of just Disney and Pixar movies and Disney TV shows.

A Netflix spokesman declined to comment.

This certainly won't help Disney who needs a bucketload of subscribers for its platform. Disney's market cap by the way is about $150 billion, so yes this deal is doable. But now, company CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that the franchises will appear exclusively on Disney's service.

Successfully launching the new digital services is one of Mr. Iger's two chief priorities in the remaining two years before his planned retirement in 2019, he said, along with lining up his successor.
