    It doesn’t matter if you’re 5, 15, 25 or 55, the magic of Disney never leaves you – which is why we appropriately freaked out when they leaked all their film releases for the next three years. But, now, we hear that our favourite media relationship is coming to an end, and yes, we’re talking about that of Disney and Netflix because Disney is pulling all its content from Netflix.

    We’re already fluent in the Netflix hacks that allow us to go straight to all their Disney content so the fact that there will be no more Disney content on Netflix from 2019 has broken our hearts.

    Cue, a mass Disney binge, no? (Is that a good enough reason for missing work?)

    But, it’s not all bad news because Disney are going to set up their own streaming service in two years, which according to Disney boss Robert Iger, will ‘mark the beginning of what will be an entirely new growth strategy for the company’.

    And, don’t forget about the Disneyland Paris music festival (Glastonbury who?)

    So, excuse us while we watch some of our favourites – Beauty And The Beast and The Little Mermaid, if you’re asking – and getting some serious wardrobe inspiration from those Disney gowns and wedding dresses.

    There’s already talks of Netflix shares going down since the news was announced so we’re guessing that streaming services like Amazon are also feeling the pressure of what this new move will mean for their business.
