Get Your Fix Now! Disney Is Pulling 'Moana' & Other Content from Netflix
Calling all Disney fans. Start binge-watching your favorite shows and movies on Netflix in 4, 3, 2, 1...
Earlier this year, Disney announced they're planning to offer their own streaming service Disney+—and as a result, the company made the decision to pull their content from Netflix. The first blow: Moana will be leaving the streaming platform on December 20.
And if you're panicking about missing out on other Disney titles, you have until the end of the year to binge all your favorites. According to CNN Money, the company won't completely end its partnership with Netflix until 2019.
The decision to launch a specific branded streaming service comes at a time when consumers are watching media in new ways, and the house Walt built hopes to connect directly with its viewers, and obvi, track their habits. Once the new service becomes available, it will be the only way we Disney lovers can view the films can't wait to see, like Toy Story 4, and the highly anticipated sequel to Frozen. Content from the brand's many channels will also be streamed via this new service.

No word on how much the service will cost, but one thing is for sure: I'll probably pay for it no matter what. That's the thing about all things mouse, princess and Pixar. It's just too good, no matter how much it sets you back. How else can you explain all the merchandise that has my house splitting at the seams, or our decision to spend almost all of our vaca time at Disney World?
