IMAX and Disney+ have partnered together to give Marvel fans at home the chance to watch some of their favorite Marvel movies in IMAX’s Expanded Aspect Ratio. The partnership called, IMAX Enhanced on Disney+, will be launching on Disney+ on November 12th as part of the Disney+ Day festivities.
There will be 13 Marvel movies that will get the IMAX Enhanced on Disney+ treatment. This includes:
- Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings

- Avengers: Infinity War
- Ant-Man and The Wasp

IMAX’s Expanded Aspect Ratio is 1:90:1, a full 26% more picture for select sequences. This will mean that viewers will see more of what’s happening on the screen. There will be even more enhanced audio and visual technology from this collaboration in the future. One thing coming is the immersive IMAX signature sound by DTS.
“For more than a decade, IMAX has helped filmmakers take fans across the Marvel Cinematic Universe in theaters 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.”
“Disney, Marvel Studios, and IMAX have collaborated for years to bring the world’s most popular films to the big screen, and on Friday we’ll start to bring IMAX technology to subscribers with IMAX Enhanced viewing in the Disney+ app,” said Michael Paull, President of Disney+ and ESPN+. “We’re thrilled to create new value for Marvel fans and audiences on Disney+, and we’re looking forward to offering even more IMAX Enhanced functionality in the future.”
IMAX is billed as the most “immersive canvas for filmmakers to bring their visions to audiences.” Bringing this technology to Disney+ will create an even higher fidelity viewing experience from the comfort of homes around the world. Disney+ is the first streaming service to utilize the IMAX Enhanced technology.
