Star Wars Virtual Reality Series Announced for Oculus Quest
ILMxLab, the immersive storytelling arm of Lucasfilm, has announced “Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series” this week at Oculus Connect 5 in San Jose, CA.
The three-part immersive story will debut in 2019 on the new Oculus Quest VR headset.
“Our mission at ILMxLAB is to have fans ‘Step Inside Our Stories,’ and Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series represents a significant step forward in that ongoing quest,” says Vicki Dobbs Beck, ILMxLAB Executive in Charge. “Our friends at Oculus share ILMxLAB’s ambition to bring compelling immersive narratives to life, and using Oculus’ hardware, we will invite fans to experience Darth Vader as never before.”
ILMxLAB has produced several Star Wars themed VR experiences, including Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire (a “hyper-reality” experience available at The VOID). This new VR series will provide a high-profile example of interactive cinematic storytelling.
