Both Marvel and Star Wars titles — two of the most popular movie franchises in the world and both owned by Disney — will be exclusively streamed on Disney’s upcoming streaming service launching in late 2019, said Disney CEO Bog Iger Thursday at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2017 Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference in Los Angeles.

“I have described a very rich, treasure trove of content for this app,” said Iger, according to CNBC. ”We’re going to launch big, and we’re going to launch hot.”

In addition to movies such as Iron Man, Thor, The Avengers, The Force Awakens, Rogue One and more, Iger said the new service will offer original series and exclusive movies when it launches, as well as Disney’s existing television library. To bring the movies exclusively to Disney’s new streaming service, the company is pulling them from their current streaming home of Netflix in early 2019.

No subscription price has yet been determined for the unnamed service.

Disney also plans to launch an ESPN-branded streaming service.
