Apple has acquired the rights to two movies, The Elephant Queen and Wolfwalkers, reports Bloomberg.

Apple's top executives in its video division, Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht, are reportedly scouting films to expand Apple's slate of original television and film content. The Elephant Queen was screened last weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The Elephant Queen is a documentary about an elephant matriarch leading her herd in search of a new watering hole to call home. Wolfwalkers is an animated film by Oscar-nominated studio Cartoon Saloon and Melusine Productions that follows a young apprentice hunter named Robyn in a world of superstition.

Last year, the Cupertino tech giant was reported to be interested in acquiring distribution rights for the James Bond film franchise, and according to Bloomberg, Van Amburg and Erlicht have been given a budget of at least $1 billion to spend in a year, as the company looks to catch up with Netflix and Amazon.

Now, here's what you can expect at Apple’s special event tomorrow.
