But the Disney movies currently on Netflix won’t be going away — not anytime soon, at least.
The Netflix distribution deal will end in 2018 and Disney’s new streaming is set to kick off in 2019 with Disney’s “Toy Story 4,” the “Frozen” sequel and Disney’s CGI animated remake of “The Lion King.”
Additionally, Disney announced a “significant investment” in original movies, TV shows and other Disney-branded exclusives for ESPN subscribers.
Subscribers will also have access to a huge collection of Disney and Pixar movies and Disney television programming.
According to The Verge, Disney's decision is "a real blow" to Netflix. In 2012, the streaming service and entertainment company secured a streaming deal with Disney, but the deal only went into effect in 2016.
