ILMxLAB, the studio behind the recent Star Wars: Vader Immortal, is working on a brand new action-adventure virtual reality experience entitled Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, inspired by the new theme park land at Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida.
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is set on the outskirts of Batuu’s Black Spire Outpost and promises to give players the opportunity to live their own adventure and explore part of a galaxy far, far away in virtual reality in a brand new story set between between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
“We are so excited for fans to step into Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge later this year,” said Vicki Dobbs Beck, ILMxLAB executive-in-charge. “This action-packed adventure not only speaks to the promise of connected and complementary experiences by extending the lore around Black Spire Outpost, it represents another meaningful step in ILMxLAB’s quest to transition from storytelling — one-way communication — to storyLIVING, where you’re inside a world making consequential choices that drive your experience forward.”
“The rich storytelling in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has redefined what a Disney park experience can be, and we are thrilled fans will have an opportunity to discover new stories, meet new characters and explore new regions of the planet Batuu in Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge,” added Scott Trowbridge, Walt Disney Imagineering creative executive. “Now our guests can immerse themselves in these stories both inside and outside our parks.”
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is set for release later this year.
