One of Lucasfilm's most ambitious endeavors yet, the virtual reality experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, was announced earlier this summer, and there's a new trailer showing it off.
According to StarWars.com: "Under the orders of the budding rebellion, your team will travel to the molten planet of Mustafar. Your mission is to recover Imperial intelligence vital to the rebellion’s survival. Alongside the pragmatic droid K-2S0, your team must navigate through an enemy facility walking into danger at every turn. Disguised as stormtroopers, grab your blaster, solve puzzles, and fight giant lava monsters in an effort to fulfill your team’s orders."
“At THE VOID, we combine the magic of illusions, advanced
“At ILMxLAB, we want people to step inside the worlds of our stories,” Vicki Dobbs Beck, executive in charge of ILMxLAB, divulged. “Through our collaboration with THE VOID, we can make this happen as guests become active participants in an unfolding Star Wars adventure. By combining Lucasfilm’s storytelling expertise with cutting-edge imagery, and immersive sound from the team at Skywalker Sound, while invoking all the senses, we hope to truly transport all those who experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire to a galaxy far, far away.”
The experience debuts at Walt Disney World Resort on December 16th and at Disneyland Resort on January 5, 2018.
