Dolby & Star Wars' Oscar-Nominated Sights and Sounds #DolbyAtmos #DolbyVision
Star Wars and Dolby has had a strong relationship since the first film in the franchise, and the advancements with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision have helped turn the newest chapter into a masterpiece that was nominated for five Oscars: Film Editing, Visual Effects, Original Score, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing.

Since it’s highly anticipated release last year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has taken audiences around the world by storm and, as of the end of February, has raked in more than $2 billion at the global box office.
This monumental success is thanks in large part to an incredible behind-the-scenes effort from some of the most talented audio and visual professionals in the film industry.
Check out three videos featuring Oscar nominated re-recording sound mixer, Andy Nelson, co-producer Ben Rosenblatt and more of the crew discussing how the marriage of Dolby and Star Wars brought the galaxy far, far away into theaters worldwide for an immersive experience.
