The boats are coming for Disney’s movies, ready to evacuate them from Netflix’s disputed shore. The studio’s deal with the streaming service expires next year; in 2019 everything that smells even faintly of mouse will move to a new redoubt. Disney and Pixar movies will supply the pipeline for a new Disney-owned streaming platform, a company rep said during an earnings announcement. (CEO Bob Iger also said he wasn’t sure if the Star Wars and Marvel movies would be on the same new service or somewhere else entirely.)

IT’S BEEN EIGHT years since Netflix first began streaming movies, and by now the catalog is essentially a tiny civilization; each month, dozens of titles shuffle off the cloud-based coil, and dozens more are born to take their place. And we don’t know about you, but the majority of these births and deaths are insignificant. Oh noes, Ink Master: Season 2 won’t be available anymore! That’s okay, though, because the first four seasons of The Vanilla Ice Projectwill slide in to fill the void. See?
