Disney+ Unveiling IMAX Enhanced on November 12 for Select MCU Movies
Beginning on November 12, Disney+ subscribers will be able to tap into some of the sensations of seeing a movie on the biggest screen of them all by using the streaming service’s new IMAX expanded aspect ratio. For a select list of Marvel Cinematic Universe films, the new capability will allow you to watch your favorites like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Thor: Ragnarok, or Avengers: Endgame in the expanded ratio, creating at least an approximation of the experience of watching a Marvel film on the biggest screen available. Many Marvel films are at least partially shot with IMAX cameras, or with IMAX’s expanded aspect ratio in mind, so this ability to unlock that aspect ratio for your TV is intriguing.
The announcement is part of Disney+’s build-up to November 12, or Disney+ Day as they’re billing it, which coincides with the release of Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings on the streaming service. What’s more, Disney+ promises a bunch of new reveals like IMAX Enhanced, with new content from not only Marvel, but Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars. If you’re curious why November 12 was chosen as Disney+ Day, it’s because it marks the day that Disney+ launched, in 2019, and will also be the day the service becomes available in South Korea and Taiwan.
