Netflix Is in Talks to Keep Marvel & Star Wars Movies After 2019


This week it was front page news that Netflix and Dinsey would go their own ways in 2019. Now it looks like Disney may be open to keeping some Marvel and Star Wars content on Netflix.

New in a statement Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos told Reuters on Friday they said that Netflix and Disney are in “active discussions” to keep Marvel and Star Wars movies after 2019.

Disney has hinted at plans to create a Star Wars and Marvel streaming service but said it was not a done deal. It is possible they are holding out to see what deal they may be able to work out with Netflix first.

This is leading many to believe that Disney’s new streaming service will be aimed at a more family demographic. Something that Star Wars and Marvel movies may not fit into. For now, though that is all speculation at this time.

Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos went on to say that services like Disney’s new streaming service is the reason why Netflix is getting into more original content. “That’s why we got into the originals business five years ago, anticipating it may be not as easy a conversation with studios and networks.”

For now we will have to wait and see what happens next.

    From the Disney side it seems like “Are you going to pay me enough to not create my own service?”

    Is curious that the Disney announcement to leave Netflix came days after Netflix announced buying a comic book label.

    I would not be very surprised to see the Marvel & Star Wars content stay on Netflix as it is (in general) more mature content than anything under the Disney banner.
