‘Star Wars Secrets of the Empire’ VR experience to launch in December
For the Rebellion!
Disney and LucasFilm have a new VR experience that is sure to get Star Wars fans excited. Just a few days after LucasFilm released the trailer for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the studio confirmed that tickets are now on sale for the highly anticipated hyper-reality experience, “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire”. The special exhibit is debuting at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando on December 16 and Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim on January 5.
Tickets for Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire can be purchased now at thevoid.com and the trailer can be seen below. Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will transport guests deep into the beloved Star Wars universe allowing them to walk freely and untethered throughout the multi-sensory experience with friends and family. In groups of four, teams will go undercover as Stormtroopers to capture Imperial intelligence vital to the budding rebellion’s survival.
“We are so excited about this magical collaboration between three boundary-pushing companies in the burgeoning out-of-home VR entertainment sector,” says Curtis Hickman, co-founder and chief creative officer at The VOID. “We can’t wait to share the experience of hyper-reality with everyone.” Guests can experience the excitement of hyper-reality today with this first look at Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire.
“People have longed for a chance to step into the Star Wars universe and this incredible new hyper-reality experience will allow them to do just that in a totally unique way,” notes Vicki Dobbs Beck, executive in charge, ILMxLAB. “It’s a group experience that evokes the senses in bold new ways.”
If anything it will most likely blow the minds of little Padawans and Stormtroopers alike, with the full setup going live later this winter. You can checkout the official website for ticket information, and get ready for the Episode XII in December.
