You’ll soon be able to avoid sky-high cinema ticket prices, thanks to an update from Disney+. The popular streaming service just announced a blockbuster upgrade that brings an impressive IMAX-style experience to the telly in your living room.
If you’ve ever visited an IMAX screen before, you’ll be familiar with the enormous size with its trademark larger aspect ratio to pack more content onto the silver screen. And now, that’s exactly what Disney+ is bringing to standard TVs with “IMAX’s Expanded Aspect Ratio” functionality coming to 13 of its Marvel titles.
Disney is promising that users will get 26 percent more picture for select sequences – meaning more of the action is visible on screen, just as the filmmakers intended.
The 13 titles available at launch include the Disney+ premiere of Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings on November 12th as well as other fan-favourite MCU movies like Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, and Black Widow (content availability varies by region).
“For more than a decade, IMAX has helped filmmakers take fans across the Marvel Cinematic Universe in theatres and now that epic journey crosses into a new world: the home,” said Rich Gelfond, CEO of IMAX. “IMAX, Disney, and Marvel Studios are giving the fans what they want: the most immersive viewing experience throughout the life of a Marvel Studios film, from exclusive theatrical release to the library at-home where they can now watch the Avengers assemble with more picture than ever before.”
If you don’t currently subscribe to Disney+ or have just cancelled your contract there’s more good news with the company confirming that it’s slashing the price for those who sign up or renewing their subscription.
Starting this week and running through today through to Sunday November 14, new and eligible returning subscribers can get one month of Disney+ for £1.99 – that’s its lowest ever price. This offer has been launched to celebrate Disney+ Day which takes place on Friday, November 12.
Along with that price cut, Disney+ subscribers will also be treated to exclusive on-platform specials from Pixar Animation Studios premiering at 4:00pm GMT and from Marvel Studios premiering at 4:45pm GMT, and other surprise sneak peeks.
