While Disney and Pixar-branded films are being removed from Netflix, that may not be the case for Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm titles.

According to reports, those rights will be negotiated after 2019.

Disney will debut its own branded streaming service for USA consumers in 2019 and later expand the service worldwide.

Underpinning the strategy is the House of Mouse's decision to take a majority ownership of streaming company BAMTech (it had a 33% stake before). Previously the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, BAMTech was founded in 2000 and provides direct-to-consumer streaming services, data analytics and commerce management with almost 7.5 million total paid subscribers to its clients' OTT products. The multi-platform offering also has back-end technology that can personalise and enhance content viewing experiences and is capable of serving live content to global consumers.

Netflix, the popular video streaming service, wants to keep the famous Marvel and Star Wars films of the Walt Disney, which itself is launching into the online sphere.

Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos told Reuters, "we are still in active discussions" with Disney to keep Marvel and Star Wars movies on the service beyond 2019, at which time Disney will launch its own branded streaming service that features various Disney and Pixar films.
