Thor: Love and Thunder
Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder finds the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced—one of self-discovery. But his efforts are interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who—to Thor’s surprise—inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.

Thor: Love and Thunder joins 15 other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies now streaming in IMAX Enhanced on Disney+, which provides up to 26 percent more picture for an immersive at-home viewing experience. (No additional cost or device required. Content availability varies by region.)

Where do ideas come from—and where do they go when they’re forgotten? These central questions are brought to life in Remembering, an original short film by Emmy®-winning director Elijah Allan-Blitz. The story follows a writer (Brie Larson), who loses a very important idea when her phone rings. Personified as golden light, this lost idea is found by the writer’s inner child, who takes us on a journey through The World of Imagination. It is easy to lose touch with this world, but each of us can be inspired by it—if we just remember. With a first-of-its-kind companion Augmented Reality app, where the AR experience is triggered by the film’s moving image, select Disney+ subscribers in the U.S. can interact with the story by scanning the TV to extend The World of Imagination into their living room.

Raised alongside his sister Uma (Mora Fisz) by his maternal grandparents, Eric decides to run away from home and go back to his childhood town, Cabo Qwert, to find answers where his parents were last seen: the Tierra Incógnita horror theme park. With his friends, his sister, and his aunt, Eric must overcome his fears in order to find answers and solve the mystery in a dark and unfamiliar world.

Growing Up
Created by Larson and Culture.House, this innovative, hybrid docu-series explores the challenges, triumphs, and complexities of adolescence through 10 compelling coming of age stories.

They represent a wide range of lived experiences, giving audiences emotionally powerful narratives that offer an engaging look at teenage-hood and the diverse social, familial, and internal obstacles young people face on their path to self-discovery and acceptance. Each 30-minute episode is centered on a single young person and is anchored by a deeply personal interview that allows them to walk Disney+ subscribers through their childhood and teenage years. Alongside these interviews, creative cinematic reenactments help bring major inflection points to life.
