Avengers: Infinity War and other Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar movies will not leave Netflix on Disney+ launch date.

Disney+ will launch on Nov. 12, 2019, and Avengers: Infinity War and all Disney, Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar movies will be leaving Netflix and moving to Disney+, right? No, Disney will not pull off a Thanos-like snap of all their movies from Netflix right away, but they will be taking some of their titles back at that time.

According to a report from Decider, those new Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar movies will remain on Netflix for 18 months, which is what was previously agreed upon in the Netflix-Disney deal. The Disney movies will not be disappearing from Netflix at one time as some seemed to think.

In other words, each new Disney movies will stay on Netflix for 18 months, starting with their release date on Netflix, and then they’ll move to Disney’s streaming service when that time is up. For instance, Avengers: Infinity War was added to Netflix on Christmas Day 2018 (Dec. 25), and the film will remain on Netflix US until June 25, 2020.

That’s what we’ve been thinking would happen for a while now, and we’ve written about it quite a bit over the last few years. Netflix has the streaming rights to those movies for 18 months, and then the movies will move to Disney+, likely, forever.

According to the report from Decider, it sounds like some of those movies will be available on both streaming services at the same time. For instance, Black Panther, if it remains on Netflix for its full 18-month run, would be removed the streaming service on March 4, 2020. Yet, the Decider report claims the film will be on both at the launch date.

Ultimately, this is a really good thing for Netflix subscribers and the streaming network overall. It limits the impact of the new streaming service launch initially, and it keeps some good movies on Netflix for longer. Unfortunately, those 18 months will go rather quickly and then Netflix will be completely free of all those great movies.

It’ll sting for a while, and some subscribers might even cancel their subscriptions. But, the streaming network will survive, though. As we speak, they are investing billions in new original content, and that is the future of the streaming service. That should be a good thing moving forward because we’ll be getting more good shows like Stranger Things, Ozark, Orange is the New Black and more, and they will not be paying as much for licensed content, which could have cost the company billions more moving into the future.

Stay tuned for more news about the new streaming service and the official exit dates for Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and all the other new content from the House of Mouse and all their other studios.
