Get Ready For Disney's Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire
As fans of Star Wars we're excited to see the next chapter in the Skywalker saga in theaters. We are also looking forward to the thrilling immersive experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire that is coming to Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando in Mid December. Plus, it will also premiere at Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim in January.
“We are so excited about this magical collaboration between three boundary-pushing companies in the burgeoning out-of-home VR entertainment sector,” says Curtis Hickman, co-founder and chief creative officer at The VOID. “We can’t wait to share the experience of hyper-reality with everyone.”
These new additions to Disney offer a total immersion in the Star Wars universe. It's going to be amazing for us to be able to walk freely and untethered throughout the multi-sensory experience with friends and family. The Star Wars  experience takes on a adventure in groups of four, with teams going undercover as Stormtroopers to capture Imperial intelligence vital to the budding rebellion’s survival.
“People have longed for a chance to step into the Star Wars universe and this incredible new hyper-reality experience will allow them to do just that in a totally unique way,” notes Vicki Dobbs Beck, executive in charge, ILMxLAB. “It’s a group experience that evokes the senses in bold new ways.
