Disney movies are now made available from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to ‘Cars’ for rent on YouTube. The Google-owned largest video sharing website has announced this news on Wednesday. However, it is not quite a Netflix killer yet, but the video site now boasts four major studios among its rolls that include Sony, Universal, Lionsgate and Warner Bros.

Definitely, it is all part of YouTube’s ongoing effort to integrate high-quality movies and television shows into a site best known for cat videos and other user-generated content. Adding to this, it is licensing content and YouTube announced plans last month to create dozens of channels with original shows from partners such as Jay-Z and Ashton Kutcher.

For this case, the Disney deal, customers will have 48 hours to watch the films which generally range in price from $1.99 to $3.99 for newer releases such as ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’. Besides, Pixar and some DreamWorks titles will be included as part of the Disney deal. According to the sources, Google and Disney will collaboratively spend $10 million to $15 million on that venture to produce original video series, which will then be available on both YouTube and Disney.com. However, Disney, which also owns ABC, ESPN and several other content providers, has struggled to find a fan base on the Web while continuing to find success with movies and on television.
