Lucasfilm has released a new trailer for Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, the latest virtual reality experience from ILMxLAB, the studio behind the Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series, which offers a look at gameplay from the title, as well as confirming that Frank Oz has returned to the galaxy far, far away to once again lend his voice to Jedi Master Yoda.
“Yoda is one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars galaxy, thanks in large part to the incredible performance of Frank Oz,” states director Jose Perez III. “Working with Frank to weave Yoda into the fabric of Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge was an unforgettable experience and a dream come true. I can’t wait for players to meet the Jedi Master face to face in our first exciting tale.”

The experience takes place on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the epic land at Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. You’ll play as a droid technician operating near Batuu, but when a group of Guavian Death Gang pirates attack you’ll be forced to jettison the ship’s mysterious cargo and head for an escape pod. After crashing on Batuu, you’ll explore the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost, and learn how the actions of one person can change the galaxy.
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge will launch on Oculus Quest on November 19th.
