SALT LAKE CITY — Disney announced Tuesday that it plans to pull its content from Netflix and create its own streaming app.

Disney said its content will still be available on Netflix until 2019 when it will launch its own streaming service. That will kick off with the upcoming live-action “The Lion King” and “Toy Story 4.”
