Lightyear Now Streaming in IMAX Enhanced on Disney+


  • This is the first Disney and Pixar animated film on Disney+ with scenes in IMAX’s Expanded Aspect Ratio, creating a unique, immersive experience for kids and families at home with no special equipment required.
  • With IMAX Enhanced, the film comes with IMAX’s exclusive Expanded Aspect Ratio, which delivers audiences up to 26% more picture for major sequences of the film, meaning more of the action is visible on screen, just as director Angus MacLane had envisioned.
  • “We are thrilled that Disney and Pixar’s ‘Lightyear’ is the first IMAX Enhanced animated film launching on Disney+,” said Angus MacLane, who helmed the film. “Leveraging IMAX’s technology throughout the filmmaking process allowed us to create an elevated viewing experience for ‘Lightyear’ fans in theaters, at home, and beyond”
  • The animated film starring Chris Evans as the titular space ranger will join 15 titles that are available on Disney+ in IMAX Enhanced, including Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings, Avengers: Endgame, Eternals, and most recently Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
