- Not all Disney content will be available on its upcoming streaming service when it launches late next year.
- CEO Bob Iger said in an earnings call on Tuesday that some movies are affected by licensing arrangements. That includes “Star Wars” movies released before 2019.
- Disney will let a deal with Netflix expire at the end of the year, but according to Bloomberg, it’s still facing pushback from Turner Broadcasting, which owns the TV rights to old “Star Wars” movies until 2024.
- However, Disney is developing a number of original shows and movies for the service, including a live-action “Star Wars” series.
