Disney, Dolby, and "Chicken Little"

Disney wants 100 theaters to be able to show a 3-D version of its forthcoming animated flick "Chicken Little," out this November.

So Industrial Light and Magic and Real D are converting the movie into 3-D so it can be shown using digital cinema servers from Dolby Laboratories. Those servers will be installed in 100 theaters around the country.

No word on whether the 100 theaters will keep the digital rig (I doubt it - this sounds like a demo) or who's providing the projectors.

Here's the original press release and here's the Reuters story.
