Though theaters are opening, there’s not a whole lot of new movies coming out over the next few months. That means most folks will continue to rely on their streaming subscriptions to offer up some fresh films to watch this summer. And Disney Plus is ready to give the people what they want.

The Mouse House’s service has unveiled its “Summer Movie Nights” schedule today, which will see a major blockbuster or old favorite go up on D+ every Friday in the coming months.
