Director Travis Knight recalls that seeing Dolby Vision for the first time made him feel "like I was a kid again going to the movie theatre....The detail, the clarity, the range of dynamism that you can see onscreen using Dolby Vision, it's really unlike anything we've seen before. And as a filmmaker, that's incredibly exciting.
In the below video, you can hear more from Travis about building Kubo's world with Dolby Vision™ and Dolby Atmos®.
Animation supervisor Brad Schiff agrees: "The better the animation is, the better the color looks, the better the sound is, the more a viewer will get immersed in the story and forget about the medium they're watching. It's that suspension of disbelief and being able to just totally immerse in the story."

With Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, Dolby Cinema enables richer and more detailed storytelling. The Dolby Vision projection system, which uses state-of-the-art optics and image processing, delivers high dynamic range with enhanced color technology and a contrast ratio that far exceeds that of any other image technology on the market today.
The result is a viewing experience that delivers strikingly vivid and realistic images that make viewers feel like they are in the movie’s world. Dolby Cinema also includes the award-winning Dolby® sound technology, Dolby Atmos, which moves audio around the theatre, even overhead, with amazing richness and depth.

Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA.
Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of “Game of Thrones”) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Hashi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), and Kameyo (Academy Award nominee Brenda Vaccaro).
But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta.
Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known.
With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara), to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family, and fulfill his heroic destiny.
