Because streaming can’t be easy and the ultimate goal is for us all to spend as much on separate streaming services as we used to spend on that overpriced cable bill, Hulu has announced a partnership with Walt Disney Studios, wherein they will add more than 50 animated and live action titles to their currently underwhelming movie library, including Mulan, Tarzan, Pocohontas, and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
This, however, is a completely separate deal from Disney’s partnership with Netflix, which is the exclusive streaming home of the studio giant’s recent releases – from not only Disney proper but Pixar and Marvel, including the recently streaming Captain America: Civil War and Zootopia. And it’s also separate from Hulu’s previous deal to stream Disney TV shows and made-for-Disney movies.
TechCrunch reports some titles – including Mulan, Pocahontas, Nightmare, and (thank God) Air Bud – are already streaming on Hulu, while others will arrive next year. The 2017 additions will include Con Air, Pearl Harbor, The Mighty Ducks, The Princess and the Frog (pretty underrated, that one; take it from a dad who’s watched it approximately 400 times in the last year), and Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion, so insert your own Post-Its joke here.
