Disney just announced a breakup with Netflix. The company will be launching its own standalone video streaming service sometime in 2019, which will be home to future theater releases including Frozen 2 and Toy Story 4 — plus Disney’s vault of animated classic and new original content.

But that’s two years away, and after hearing today’s news, many Netflix customers are probably wondering how much longer they’ll be able to stream Disney content. Fear not: it’s not going away anytime in the near future. Netflix will continue to offer Disney movies from now until the end of 2019. That includes any new releases for the remainder of this year and all of 2018. So yes, Star Wars: The Last Jedi will eventually come to Netflix. But any film premiering in 2019 and beyond will not be available from Netflix.

Below you’ll find a list of what else you’ll be able to watch before these two companies go their separate ways.

How long will Netflix customers be able to stream Disney’s movies?

Netflix says its subscribers will be able to watch Disney movies on the service until the end of 2019.

What upcoming Disney movies can I expect to see on Netflix?

Netflix will be getting pretty much anything from Disney that’s coming to theaters before the calendar moves to 2019. Recent and future releases include:

  • A Wrinkle in Time
  • Ant-Man and The Wasp
  • Avengers: Infinity War
  • Black Panther
  • Cars 3
  • Coco
  • Mary Poppins Returns
  • Mulan
  • Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2
  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • Star Wars standalone Han Solo movie (untitled)
  • The Incredibles 2
  • The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
  • Thor: Raganok

Note that if any of these movies are delayed into 2019, they will not be available from Netflix and will fall to the list below.

Movies that won’t be coming to Netflix as a result of this news include:

  • Avengers 4 (untitled)
  • Captain Marvel
  • Dumbo (live action, directed by Tim Burton)
  • Frozen 2
  • Star Wars Episode IX
  • The Lion King (live action, directed by Jon Favreau)
  • Toy Story 4

What about the Marvel shows on Netflix?

A Netflix spokesperson told The Verge by email that “We continue to do business with the Walt Disney Company on many fronts, including our ongoing deal with Marvel TV.” You’ve still got The Defenders to look forward to in August. That’ll be followed by The Punisher, plus at least another season each for Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist.

But Disney’s new plan for its own streaming service definitely raises questions about how much Netflix will be willing to invest in future projects.
