Disney and Lucasfilm provide the ultimate behind-the-scenes glimpse into the production and musical scoring of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in “Scoring The Last Jedi: A 360 VR Experience,” built by Pasadena, CA-based creative studio SunnyBoy Entertainment. The experience is now available for VR headsets via the YouTube VR feature.
The 360-degree experience gives Star Wars fans a VIP behind-the-scenes intergalactic expedition, taking viewers on a virtual tour of the The Last Jedi’s production and sound stages and dropping them face-to-face with Academy Award-winning film composer John Williams and film director Rian Johnson.
The duo provides deep insight on the musical approach and creation of the film’s 183-minute soundtrack. The experience also showcases Williams conducting a magnificent 100+ piece orchestra, trumpeting the triumphant and elegant film tracks, including “The Last Jedi” and “Peace and Purpose.”
As viewers are taken through various production stages, they come across Stormtroopers and other beloved Star Wars characters as they prepare for an upcoming scene.
