Nerdly News: Disney to Leave Netflix, Start Own Streaming Service

Todays’ news:

 

In what should not be a surprise to anyone, Disney will pull its movies from Netflix and start its own streaming services in 2019. According to CNBC:

 

“CEO Bob Iger told CNBC’s Julia Boorstin Disney had a “good relationship” with Netflix, but decided to exercise an option to move its content off the platform. Movies to be removed include Disney as well as Pixar’s titles, according to Iger. Netflix said Disney movies will be available through the end of 2018 on its platform. Marvel TV shows will remain.” Full story here

First pics of Fox’s Rocky Horror released

EW has the first look at the revamped Rocky Horror Picture Show coming to Fox this fall. I’m loving Tim Curry as the narrator (“I would like, if I may…”), but everyone else looks too young and…clean. They all look like they stumbled out of a Halloween party.
