Con Air, Gone in 60 Seconds, and Pearl Harbor are just a few of the movies coming to Hulu in the near future. However, those are just appetizers to the main course.

A new multiyear deal between Hulu and Disney will give the streaming service exclusive SVOD rights to some of Disney’s most famous films. For Hulu, the streaming service will be the lone subscription video on-demand home to movies such as Mulan, Pocahontas, and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

“The Disney brand is synonymous with beloved movies that the whole family can enjoy,” said Craig Erwich, Hulu’s head of content. “Expanding our offering of top-rated kids and family programming has been a top priority for us, and we know viewers will love watching these films over and over again on our service.”

The entertainment conglomerate owns a piece of Hulu and, as such, the streaming service already offers TV shows and more than 20 original Disney movies.

What about Netflix?

Disney’s new deal with Hulu has nothing to do with the deal it already signed with Netflix. That deal, which kicked off this past September, includes the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar. You can already watch Zootopia and The Jungle Book on Netflix; both of those films came out earlier this year.
