A new immersive ‘Star Wars’ experience, Star War: Secrets of the Empire, is coming to Disney Springs later this year at the beginning of the holiday season. Star War: Secrets of the Empire is an immersive experience where guests can see, interact and take part of a story. Guests will be able to move freely throughout the experience location and interact and engage with friends, family and Star Wars characters. Disney is using the VOID technology to bring this amazing immersive technology to guests.
“At The VOID, we combine the magic of illusion, advanced technology and virtual reality to create fully immersive social experiences that take guests to new worlds. A truly transformative experience is so much more than what you see with your eyes; it’s what you hear, feel, touch, and even smell. Through the power of The VOID, guests who step into Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire won’t just see this world, they’ll know that they are part of this amazing story,” said Curtis Hickman, co-founder and chief creative officer at the VOID.
“Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire marks an important milestone in the continued expansion of The VOID, which also joined the 2017 Disney Accelerator earlier this year. Through the power of The VOID, guests can now experience the magic of Star Wars firsthand,” said Cliff Plumer, CEO of The VOID.
“At ILMxLAB, we want people to step inside the worlds of our stories. 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,” said Vicki Dobbs Beck, executive in charge of ILMxLab.
Here is a look at some of the technology of The VOID and people’s reactions to the experience.
May the Force be with you
