According to a post made by Director James Gunn on his Facebook page, it appears as though Disney is finally going to have Ultra HD movie releases. Disney movie fans have basically been stuck in 1080p for the last couple of years even as other studios have released 4K movies via streaming, downloads, and disc.
Now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn has confirmed on Facebook that his movie will be the first one from Disney released in 4K and HDR, fans have even more to look forward to like a sharper image and more vivid colors.
According to Gunn, “4K UltraHD is almost certainly the best way you can see this movie at home – with more definition and the most vibrant colors possible on your home screen, and with the brightest brights and the blackest blacks. A being composed of light truly appears to be a being composed of light!”
