On the second anniversary of Disney+ the house of mouse decided to create Disney+ Day. They used this day to announce a whole slew of series and movies, as well as release a bunch of new content headlined by Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings and Jungle Cruise.
Disney+ also launched IMAX Enhanced which is available on 12 MCU titles. What does this mean – less black bars and more movie on your TV screens.
