This project, titled Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, is a collaboration between ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm’s entertainment studio, and Oculus Studios. It’s described as an at-home, virtual reality experience that will bring the beloved elements and storytelling from Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge to a more personal level at home.
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is a new action-adventure experience that will give fans the opportunity to live their own adventures in virtual reality. The original story will feature both new and iconic characters from the Star Wars galaxy. Multiple styles of gameplay as well as difficulty settings are included so that the experience can be enjoyed by a variety of players – from Star Wars fans to VR gamers.
Just like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the story will take place between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on Batuu, with the action happening along the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost. This extension of the storytelling found at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge builds on the lore of a land that has redefined what a Disney park experience can be, and we can’t wait for you to experience it yourself!
Every single Star Wars fan out there was highly anticipating the opening of Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge, both in the Walt Disney World Resort and in Disneyland.
