Walt Disney Co. and IMAX Corp. announced on Monday that to mark the second anniversary of streaming service Disney+ they will make available 13 Marvel Cinematic Universe films in IMAX’s expanded aspect ratio at home with IMAX Enhanced.

The Burbank entertainment and media giant and the large format film distributor based in the Toronto area said in a release that IMAX’s expanded aspect ratio provides 26 percent more picture for select sequences.


Among the films to be available starting Nov. 12 – called Disney+ Day from Disney – are Marvel classic “Iron Man,” the studio’s latest hit “Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings,” as well as “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Avengers: Endgame,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the summer hit “Black Widow.”


Michael Paull, president of Disney+, said that Disney, Marvel Studios and IMAX have collaborated for years to bring the world’s most popular films to the big screen. Staring Nov. 12, they will bring IMAX technology to Disney+ subscribers with IMAX Enhanced viewing in the Disney+ app.


“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,” Paull said in a statement.


With IMAX Enhanced, launched in 2018, IMAX and technology partner DTS enable content that can be viewed in-home for an IMAX-quality presentation.


Disney+ is the first major streaming service that will elevate the at-home viewing experience with IMAX Enhanced, the companies said in the release.


DTS in Calabasas is the audio products subsidiary of Xperi Holding Corp. in San Jose.


Shares of Disney closed Monday up $1.24, or a fraction of a percent, to $176.87 on the New York Stock Exchange, on a day when the Dow Jones closed up a fraction of a percent.
