‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’, in IMAX Enhanced (Disney Plus)
If you want to relive the experience of traveling through the multiverses with the tormented Steven Strange, all you have to do is go to Disney Plus, which offers the option to watch the film in the IMAX Enhanced format.
What does this mean? Most of the movies we see in streaming they are displayed in a panoramic version and do not occupy the full height of the screen. IMAX extended aspect ratio allows up to 26% more of the original image to be seen on home screens.
Note that some movies only have certain sequences shot in the IMAX stretched aspect ratio. Also, the other features and functions of IMAX Enhanced commonly seen in movie theaters are not available on Disney+. (AND)
