Disney has released its earnings report for the quarter ended 29 September 2018, providing more information on its upcoming streaming platform. Disney's movies will be removed from Netflix starting next year, and its much-anticipated service will launch in late 2019.

Disney has been planning its video-streaming service since at least 2017 when the company said it was its multi-year contract with Netflix and pull all of its content off the service.

Over the past few months, Disney has teased quite an impressive slate for its new streaming service which includes a handful of original movies and television series. In the announcement about the show, there was no word on other actors from the movie coming back for the series, namely Alan Tudyk who played Cassian's droid buddy K-2SO, Jimmy Smits who played Bail Organa, or Genevieve O'Reilly who played Mon Monthma. No slight intended - I fall within said niche - but the character's whole deal thus far has been showing off the massive chip on his shoulder to his family members, and I question how that's going to fill a whole season's worth of screen time.

Did you know we have a YouTube Channel?

Disney also disclosed the company is developing a new series based on Marvel villain Loki, whose portrayal by Tom Hiddleston arguably made him one of the all-time fan-favourite characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. The series is now in production and is expected to be released around the same time as the Disney Streaming service, in late 2019. Netflix users have long bemoaned how often films are buried or lost on the homepage, and the Disney+ model promises the possibility of a superior user experience.
