    Netflix might not be so willing to let go of all of Disney’s movies. After the report of Disney’s films leaving Netflix after 2019 in favor of a Disney exclusive streaming service, Netflix might be fighting to keep some of Disney’s blockbuster films.







    There are reports that Netflix is in “active discussions” with Disney to retain the Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios films on their very popular streaming service. Many fans were disappointed to hear the news of Disney's plans to create their own exclusive streaming service that would have all of their films. However, Disney CEO Bob Iger has stated that the fate of Lucasfilm and Marvel films in streaming services is still undecided.



    There have been conflicting rumors about where Disney will put these two huge movie properties. It sounds like they are still undecided on whether they will create individual services for each property, lump all of Disney's assets into one service, give them to Netflix, or even give it to another streaming service altogether (as Iger stated on Tuesday).



    Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix, believes that Disney's new streaming service will be “complimentary” to Netflix; which is an interesting concept. Netflix doesn't seem to be too concerned with Disney's decision as Sarandos states.



    What do you think about the whole streaming service divisions that are now being created? Is it too complicated to pay for multiple services? Or would you rather have one service for everything?

    Unless Netflix pays disney a sum upfront higher than half a billion, I highly doubt Disney will allow for netflix to retain rights.
