Disney Releasing First 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

It has been confirmed that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be Disney’s first 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release.

Guardians director James Gunn responded to a series of tweets earlier this week from fans wondering if the superhero sequel was going to take advantage of the latest television technology such as ultra high-definition resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR).

Disney has yet to comment, but Marvel has confirmed James’ comments on its official website.
