Netflix is the streaming service everyone goes to, to watch the latest movies and television shows, this includes all of Disney’s movies and TV shows. But, in 2017 Disney's CEO, Bob Iger, announced that they would be removing all Disney movies and shows off of other streaming services, including Netflix. With this news, Mr. Iger announced that Disney would be launching a streaming service called Disney+. Disney+ would include all of Disney’s movies, shows, and upcoming entertainment. According to an article from Variety, Disney+ is starting in 2019 to no longer stream new movies and shows on Netflix. This means that new entertainment from Disney coming in 2019, such as the live action Lion King, the live action Dumbo, Toy Story 4, and so much more will not make it to Netflix. These new movies will go straight to Disney+ after in theaters.

So, is Disney worth paying for? That is up to you, but according to Thrillist, Bob Iger said that Disney would cost less than Netflix's $8-$14 monthly rates. But is that really enough for someone to switch from their beloved Netflix to Disney+? Disney will find out when Disney+ launches in late 2019.
