Disney revealed its streaming ambitions just over a year ago by announcing two upcoming streaming services: one for its movies and TV shows and the other for content from just ESPN. While there hasn’t been much said about the latter, the former is, reportedly, the “biggest priority of the company” for 2019.

It appears to now have a name: per a report by Variety, Disney CEO Robert Iger refers to the service as Disney Play.

As it confirmed last year, Disney will also be withdrawing all its content from Netflix around the same time its own streaming service goes live; all Disney-distributed movies and TV shows – including ones by Lucasfilm, Marvel, and Pixar – are expected to be available on Disney Play. That will be at a cost though, as Variety notes, the company currently earns about $300 million of revenue annually from Netflix.

Netflix, meanwhile, is expected to continue producing its lineup of Marvel shows, such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Punisher, and The Defenders.

Variety’s report also notes that Disney will rely heavily on its 2019 movie slate – including Captain Marvel, Dumbo, Toy Story 4, The Lion King, Frozen 2, and a new Star Wars movie – to be the key selling points for the service. In addition to that, Disney is also working on multiple Star Wars live-action series that will be exclusive to the service, as well as shows from its other franchises such as High School Musical, Monsters, Inc., and Marvel.

In its Q4 2017 earnings call last year, Iger told investors that it would be priced “substantially below where Netflix is,” because “of the fact that it will have substantially less volume,” and the “price will reflect that.”

Marvel May Have Loki and Scarlet Witch Series For Disney Streaming Service

Next year, Disney is launching a new streaming service to compete with Netflix and Amazon Prime. Disney fully intends to win this war, and the company may be bringing a few of Marvel’s cinematic heroes and villains to the battle.

Variety is reporting that Disney is developing multiple limited series featuring characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Most notably, Loki and Scarlet Witch were listed as two of the shows in development. Both Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen are expected to reprise their roles for their respective series. The report also notes that there are plans for other limited series that will feature other Marvel heroes who haven’t gotten their own movies.

Disney and Marvel declined to comment on Variety’s report, which indicated that Marvel Studios would oversee the new limited series. It added that each limited series would only have six to eight episodes, with Kevin Feige taking “a hands-on role in their development.”

In addition to the missing Netflix shows, there will be some notable omissions. The first six Star Wars movies will not be available to stream on Disney Play. Even though the House of Mouse got the rights to the movies when the bought the franchise in 2012, they sold the TV rights to Turner Broadcasting. That means that until 2024, only TNT and TBS have the ability to stream Episodes I through VI. Bloomberg reports that Disney is trying to buy the rights back, though nothing has come from the talks yet.
