LucasFilm and Marvel Movies, Programming May Remain on Netflix

As we previously reported, Disney announced that they will be pulling all of their material from Netflix and starting their own streaming service. Not much more information has been released but reports state that Netflix and Disney are in discussion to leave LucasFilm and Marvel movies on the popular streaming service. This would mean that while the upcoming Frozen 2 and Toy Story 4 movies would not be available on Netflix, Star Wars and Marvel films would remain.

When Disney announced this week that they would be removing their material, Netflix stocks dropped five percent in a two-day period. They have rebounded slightly since but an agreement to keep the rights to LucasFilm and Marvel would help them significantly.

Other reports have stated that the original Marvel content such as The Defenders and Jessica Jones will remain on Netflix. While, original Disney programming from Disney Jr., Disney XD, and the Disney Channel will solely be on the new Disney streaming service.

Disney’s new streaming service is not supposed to be up and running until 2019. We can expect that Disney content will remain on Netflix until about this time.
