Today Disney and Dolby announced that the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be available in Dolby Cinema high dynamic range (HDR), which is supports a broader effort to promote Dolby Vision format.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Monday's announcement included the following statement from [J.J.] Abrams: "Dolby Cinema technology is an epic, premium way to go to the movies. I am honored to be a part of the continuation of the Star Wars saga, and can’t wait for people to see The Force Awakens through the power of the Dolby experience.”

Since the format is still very new,there are currently just 10 confirmed theaters worldwide that will be equipped to show The Force Awakens in the Dolby Vision format or in Dolby Cinema (a full-theaterconfiguration that includes Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos sound) next month. That includes Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime locations in California (Burbank), New York, Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, Georgia, plus two in Texas. It also includes two Dolby Cinema locations in the Netherlands, as well as the Disney-owned El Capitan in Hollywood, which has Dolby Vision projection and Dolby Atmos sound.
