Netflix is set to become a touch less magical since Disney just announced they’re going to remove every single one of their films from the streaming site.

 

But that doesn’t mean you’re going to have to just Let It Go altogether, because they also revealed plans to launch their own streaming service in 2019, starting in the U.S. and then expanding across the globe.

 

 

The news came at the company’s latest earnings report on Tuesday and the movies Netflix will reportedly be saying adios to include all Disney and Pixar titles.

 

You can still get your Disney fix for a while though, since Netflix said the films will be available on the platform until the end of 2018.

 

The proposed new platform from Disney will home all of their films going forward – starting with highly anticipated movies slated for release in 2019 including Frozen 2, Toy Story 4 and the upcoming live-action version of The Lion King.

 

 

The company will also be expanding their streaming horizons beyond their much-loved family movies and they also revealed plans to launch an ESPN streaming service in 2018 which will reportedly feature around 10,000 sporting events yearly.

 

Although they’re yet to have a Moan-a about it, Netflix’s shares dropped by 4% following the announcement.
