The Mandalorian will stream on Disney’s streaming service, which is set to launch in late 2019.
Good luck with that.

a monstrous pile of garbage

yeah, it'll be popular and yeah it'll get huge subscriptions, but it's going to be unequivocal shit

it is something that simply needn't exist.

"Some people call me the Space Mandalorian..."

Nope, that lyric does not really roll off the tongue.

They own like every piece of content in the world. They'll stick all the PG stuff in there once all the Netflix licenses drop off.  If they're smart they'll put all their Disney Jr stuff on there which is amazingly popular with my kids. Toss in all the Disney movies (that aren't on Netflix), all the old school mickey cartoons. Any of the FOX stuff they want to put on there.

Yeah Disney owns anything that is worth a damn, if they are serious about this Netflix is going to have to survive on original programming. At that point it would just be HBO or something.

As long as they don't pull that Disney Vault bullshit and stop streaming individual movies for years at a time.

Saw an article yesterday stating that Netflix basically gives zero fucks about holding big movie licenses anyway.  They claim their money is better invested in original content...something like 2/3rds of their viewership is the serial stuff, and that doesn't change regardless of how much they invest in movies.  And I, for one, am just fine with that.  Their original content is, on the whole, quite good and they are very prolific with it.

So let Disney carve out their little kingdom.  It might not go as well for them as they expect.

Confusing frequency with importance is a mistake. I watch a lot of shit on Netflix just to put something on the screen in the background. The reasons I subscribe to Netflix are access to a small number of their shows and access to some good movies for the occasional Friday night with the wife.

2/3 of basic cable is sustained by people having it on "in the background". Point is, you pay them, you watch, you keep paying. I have watched *so* many documentaries just to have something vaguely interesting happening while I read or play games.

And what they themselves are saying is that it doesn't seem to change their numbers whether those movies are huge expensive blockbusters, or cheaper licenses.  They still get 1/3 from it, and it therefore makes more sense for them to invest in their (very good) own content.

They still need to have movies.  Just not necessarily the biggest and best.
