  • Film‘Star Wars Secrets of the Empire’ VR experience to launch in December For the Rebellion!disney  by: John Stewart

Secrets of the Empire transports a team of players into the Star Wars world and can be experienced via The Void.

First announced back in August, Star Wars fans can now purchase tickets for the hyper-reality experience, which is due to debut at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando on 16th December and Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim on 5th January 2018.

Disney guests "will move freely throughout the untethered, social, and multi-sensory Secrets of the Empire experience in a way that allows them to interact and engage with friends, family and Star Wars characters", the Void's press release says.

If nothing else, the new experience will help fill the gap while construction continues on Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, the dedicated land within Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park, and the eventual "Star Wars" hotel on Walt Disney World property.

In groups of four: "Under the orders of the budding rebellion, your team will travel to the molten planet of Mustafar". Void co-founder Curtis Hickman noted that a true VR experience should include smell - so if you ever wondered what the Star Wars galaxy smells like, you may soon have your answer.

The team, disguised as stormtroopers and strapped with blasters, will tag along with a K-2S0 droid and "navigate through an enemy facility walking into danger at every turn".

Is fully-immersive room-based VR the future of virtual reality experiences? The members of the team will have to solve puzzles and fight lava monsters.

The Void, if you're unfamiliar, is a full-body virtual reality experience that takes VR immersion to the next level with well-crafted sets that reflect the virtual spaces you explore in various experiences. It's location-based entertainment, that means you visit one of our locations, and you walk into real-time virtual reality that combines interactive sets, real-time effects and incredible technology.
