Last spring, Disney and IMAX had struck a new deal that including partnering on then forthcoming films like Maleficent and Guardians of the Galaxy, and yet to be released films such as Tomorrowland and Star Wars: Episode VII. Now the House of Mouse and the big big screen company have renewed their deal to last through 2017, and the roster of films included in the deal shouldn't be surprising to anyone. Unsurprisingly, it includes Star Wars: Rogue One and Star Wars: Episode VIII, and Marvel's upcoming Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Thor: Ragnarok. But those aren't the only Disney films that will get IMAX releases over the next couple years. More below!
The deal also includes Pixar Anomation's sequels Finding Dory and also Toy Story 4. However, the latter will only have a limited IMAX release on June 16th 2017, and that may be because it's sandwiched by Fantastic Four arriving on June 9th and Wonder Woman on June 23rd, both releases which are ripe for IMAX. Other films in the deal include Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, The Jungle Book, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and The Finest Hours. There's likely more Disney films under this deal, but these are the big ones. There's plenty of IMAX fun to come!
