"We've now decided we will put the Marvel and "Star Wars" (movies) on this app", Iger said Thursday morning, during a communications and entertainment conference near Los Angeles area, according to Variety. And he's doing it in a massive way, by putting its "Star Wars" and Marvel movies exclusively on Disney's forthcoming over-the-top streaming service when it launches in 2019. "So it will have the entire output of the studio, animation, live action in Disney including Pixar, "Star Wars" and all the Marvel films".

Bob Iger's top priority before he steps down in two years: push Disney into the streaming era.

It was recently revealed that Disney is going to get themselves into the streaming game in a big way. First, he announced that the product would not be offered in the USA until late 2019. The more terrifying thought, though, is all the screaming children when they realize they suddenly can't watch Moana eight times a day.

As much as we love Disney and their properties, subscribing to another service just adds more to the bill.

For now, you can still catch all your Marvel and Stars Wars movies on Netflix.

Disney announced last month it would launch its own on-demand service in late 2019, and where it would offer animated and live-action family films that now stream on Netflix after they run in theaters and are sold on DVD and in digital stores like Apple Inc.'s iTunes. Iger also narrowed down the launch window for the new service, saying he anticipates it will be ready by late 2019. Disney had said it was considering it. Higher costs related to a new N.B.A. programming deal and the lack of a major "Star Wars" movie will contribute to Disney's flat 2017 results.

However, Netflix has said that it plans to continue its partnership with Marvel Television on creating original series.
