YouTube adds Disney, Pixar, and DreamWorks rentals

Google has been working hard to gather more media content these days and now, coming shortly after their Google Music announcement comes the news they've fleshed out a deal with Disney, Pixar and DreamWorks Studios to bring much of their content to YouTube.

Fans of animated movies? We’ve got the beloved animated classic, Alice in Wonderland and the newly envisioned Winnie the Pooh. Love Disney·Pixar? We have hits like Cars and Cars 2 all in one place. Up for a little bit of adventure? We’ll take you from the darkest depths of the oceans with all four of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, including the most recent blockbuster in the franchise Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Aside from just bringing the content in, Google will be working with the studios to offer YouTube Movie Extras with behind-the-scenes clips, interviews, and other exclusive content. The rentals are live on YouTube right now some you can likely pick up for $.99.
