Dolby Laboratories has confirmed seven more Dolby Cinema releases with Walt Disney Studios. Featuring both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos immersive audio, the title list opens with the Pete’s Dragon remake, due for release in August. It's followed by Marvel’s Doctor Strange (pictured) and Moana, both out November, then Beauty and the Beast (March 2017), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 2017), Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (May 2017) and Cars 3 (June 2017).

Cars 3 will be the 50th title announced to be colour-graded in Dolby Vision and mixed in Dolby Atmos for Dolby Cinema in just over a year.

“Dolby and Disney have had many industry firsts together, including bringing the advancement of Dolby Atmos sound to audiences with Disney Pixar’s Brave and the spectacular image of Dolby Vision last year. These groundbreaking technologies take the theatrical moviegoing experience to the next level,” enthused Jeff Miller, President, Studio Operations, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s very suiting that Disney was the first Dolby Atmos release, the first Dolby Vision release and now the 50th title to utilize both technologies.”

To date The Walt Disney Studios has announced or released 17 titles for Dolby Cinema.

There are currently over 200 Dolby Cinema sites installed or committed across the globe, with 50 titles released or announced. As yet, no Dolby Cinema venues have been announced for the UK.

In 2015, the Dolby Vision laser projector received an engineering excellence award from the Hollywood Post Alliance. Dolby Vision is supported by LG on select OLED and LED LCD TVs.
