From January 12, all of the streaming service’s subscribers will be able to watch Chloé Zhao’s film at no extra cost. Are you ready to meet some of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe?
If you still don’t own a Disney Plus membership, don’t worry. January is the best time of the year to join the service and gain access to its amazing catalog. Also, don’t miss out on the chance to save 20% thanks to its annual plan. That’s two whole months of Disney Plus for free!
Giving Marvel a new direction
Based on the 1976 comic strips by Jack Kirby, Eternals follows the adventures of the champions of planet Olympia, a group of immortal heroes sent to Earth by the Celestials to become the guardians of humankind. Their mission is none other than to supervise the evolution of the human race and make sure that they are protected from The Changing People, also known as the Deviants.
Released in theaters after the exciting Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals is a treat for all MCU fans. The movie isn’t just bold and full of surprises, but it manages to provide a breath of fresh air that breaks from the style of previous Marvel movies to date. This is achieved not only by introducing a new and unfamiliar group of heroes to the story, but also by transforming the classic visuals and storytelling usually found in MCU films.
An all-star cast and crew
Eternals isn’t just an amazing action-filled adventure, the movie also boasts an all-star cast and crew lead by the Oscar-winning director and scriptwriter Chloé Zhao. That’s not all, through the film you’ll see some of Hollywood’s most familiar faces, from both the big and small screen, playing the roles of these god-like heroes.
Some of the most notable actors from the films include Richard Madden (Game of Thrones), Gemma Chan (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), Lauren Ridloff (The Walking Dead), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) or Salma Hayek (From Dusk Till Dawn)… But that’s not all! There’s also Lia McHugh (Totem), Don Lee (Train to Busan), Barry Keoghan (Dunkerque) and even Angelina Jolie (Changeling).
Feel part of the movie thanks to IMAX Enhanced
Whether you’ve already watched the film in theaters or this is the first time you are watching Eternals, the movie offers a brand new experience through Disney Plus. Joining the other 13 Marvel films in the streaming service, Eternals can also be enjoyed using the revolutionary IMAX Enhanced playback system.
If you aren’t familiar with this technology, IMAX Enhanced lets you bring the magic of an IMAX screen to the comfort of your living room. With it, you can experience Marvel movies like you never imagined, with fully remastered image, sound and scale.
Using IMAX Enhanced you’ll experience a new world of vibrant colors, a greater contrast and sharper clarity thanks to its 4K HDR compatibility. What’s more, its sound quality mimics that of IMAX theaters and its aspect-ratio has been altered to adapt to its iconic screens. This translates into a wider perspective over what’s going on and literally immerses you in the film like you could never have imagined.
How can I watch Eternals for free?
On Wednesday, January 12, Eternals will join the Disney Plus catalog. To be able to enjoy this film for free you only need to have an active membership with the streaming service. There are no additional charges.
Disney Plus offers two different plans to access its catalog. You can choose between a monthly subscription of $7.99 or an annual one for $79.99. Purchasing the latter is highly recommended since it allows you to enjoy Disney+ for a whole year but paying 20% less than what you’d have to with the monthly fee.
A must watch for all MCU fans
Eternals joins Marvel’s Phase 4 breaking boundaries and creating a daring but refreshing adventure that will surely please all MCU fans. Don’t miss out on the chance to watch it for free on Disney Plus!
