Heads up space rangers – Lightyear is coming to Disney+ on August 3, 2022. The interplanetary film hit theaters broadly on June 17, 2022, and you’ll now be able to watch Lightyear at home (for current Disney+ subscribers).
Even better is the fact that Lightyear will be presented in IMAX Enhanced format. This will switch the film’s aspect ratio as it did in IMAX theaters. No special equipment is needed and this is the first non-Marvel film to be presented in this format on Disney+.
With the announcement, Pixar released a 30-second Lightyear teaser and a poster for the Disney+ release date. As of now, Lightyear doesn’t have an official release date for a physical 4K Blu-ray DVD, but websites like Blu-ray.com have it listed for a release date of September 13, 2022.
“Lightyear looks amazing on the big screen, of course, but we are so excited to bring it to Disney+,” said Angus MacLane, who helmed the film. “We devoted years of our lives to this film, and we are so proud of it. We want to share it with as many people as possible. Disney+ not only gives more fans an opportunity to see Lightyear, it gives us all the means to see it again and again.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves – Lightyear will be on repeat in our house as soon as it streams on Disney+ on August 3, 2022. Watch Lightyear on Disney+.
