FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The 4K/HDR imagery has a richer level of color saturation and deeper blacks and controlled highlights throughout compared to other formats. Plus, mastered in 4K from 3.4K digital cameras, it's an impressive cinematic experience for home viewing. The production and especially costume designer - emphasizing African elements - are top-notch.
Disney also provides Dolby Vision/HDR for a higher level of toning and Dolby Atmos for the expansive eight-channel soundtrack.
