Although half of the media world will not disappear on November 12, 2019, there is little denying that it will be changed forever. On that day, Disney and Fox assets will be pulled from Netflix, including all of the Disney Animations, Avengers, Star Wars, Pixar movies and Disney Channel TV shows. Additionally, by opening the entire Disney Classics Vault and producing several originals based on beloved IP -- not to mention including binge-worthy content, such as the first 30 years of The Simpsons -- Disney is not engaging in any kind of “hobby” with their direct-to-consumer OTT play. The cherry on top? The top revenue-generating movie of all time, Avengers: Endgame, will only ever be available on Disney+.
