It isn't 4K but we do know that the full screen IMAX scene is being retained on the 3D bluray edition (thank God)

Pity that Disney isn't releasing its Pixar, Star Wars, and MCU films on UHD. I would not mind double dipping on those titles again.

Do anybody think Disney would release 4K movies without the Blu-Ray disc and try to charged $29.99 or more for them?

I would buy these movies again on a 4K disc:

Avengers & Age Of Ultron
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Guardians Of The Galaxy
Captain America: The Winter Solder
Oz The Great & Powerful
Maleficent
Alice In Wonderland/Looking Through The Glass
Frozen

Disney need to hurry up.

If Disney is getting into the UHD Blu-ray game, I wouldn't expect any announcement until CES 2017.

They already missed the Signature repackaging of their classic animated films that started a year or so back.

They would also need to start creating 4k/HDR scans and restoration video masters of their library and decide if they want to jump over HDR10 and start off with 12 bit Dolby Vision graded discs.

PIXAR and Disney Animation would also need to start re-rendering their CGI titles to 4k resolution. That will take some time and a lot of infrastructure investment.

All 2k completed movies

Tomorrowland was a true 4k production and thus would make the most sense for Disney to start with it and titles like it

I don't see why these films being 2K is any reason for them not to get released beforehand.

For better or worse, UHD Blu-ray isn't about 4K content at this point but HDR. Pretty much all titles released so far have shown that. I doubt that if Disney does get into the 4K game that they're gonna actually get 4K masters done for films with 2K DIs.

Talking to some insiders on this that have conversed with Disney, they are not interested in 4K upscaling for UHD releases, at least not presently. So makes me wonder if they do jump in the UHD Blu arena if they'll leave films with actual 2K DIs as 2K with HDR and immersive audio and only release 4K titles with true 4K masters. I wouldn't complain!

Hmm, I wouldn't be so sure of that. Disney films aren't going to be rendered in native 4K for several years, probably around the same time that 4K VFX become the standard. Plus, we already know that The Force Awakens is a 2K DI, and while I wouldn't rule out Lucasfilm rebuilding certain flagship sequences and shots at native 4K where absolutely needed, I doubt they'll re-render all the VFX at 4K (and rescan all of the 35mm film at 4K) just for the forthcoming UHD BD, when that is incredibly expensive and would provide only a small benefit with present technology. Not to mention that it's practically industry standard to upscale 2K DIs for UHD BD, anyway. The same goes for Marvel and their films.

So considering that Disney proper will be one of the last studios to start releasing native 4K to theatres, thanks to the cost and time of rendering animation and CGI in 4K, I don't think they'll be able to hold back on UHD BDs when Marvel, certainly, will be pushing for their own UHD BD releases. But we'll see.

I nailed Tomorrowland was 4K DI filmed. I saw it from (IMAX version) look great.

I'm pretty sure Civil War has a 4K DI, no?

A shame that Disney doesn't release their animated classics on a new format so early on, as a UHD release of "Alice In Wonderland" (that has a 4K scan) timed with the home video release of "Alice Through The Looking Glass" would be a nice tie-in.

Disney was the first studio to use 4k and 10-bit color in the 90's for Snow White, so it comes as a surprise that they are the last major studio to release in this format.

As is typical for Disney the Blu-Ray was reference level. I could only imagine a 4k-HDR implementation.

Who does Disney think they are? This should have been done already.

That's why they're so profitable... they're skin flints and penny pinchers.

So no Into The Woods? Not that I liked the film, I hated how it crapped on the source material and the fact that there's a domestic abuser in this, but Emily Blunt deserves to be seen in the best of what UHD can deliver. Sicario can't be the only one and I refuse to buy Huntsman.

Default Dolby Vision

Could it be Disney likes Dolby Vision better than the HDR10? And is waiting until Dolby Vision tools for UHD blu's are completed and there is a Dolby Vision player on the market??? I know HDR10 is mandated and all, but maybe they know they'll like the way their movies look in Dolby Vision, like in the theaters, more than how HDR10 looks now.... Just a hunch...
