Stars Wars The Force Awaken: Interactive Virtual Reality Experience

ILM’s Experience Lab, aka ILMxLab was founded 40 years ago by George Lucas who created Star Wars, one of my all-time favorite movie series! Announced a collaborative project between ILMxLab, Skywalker Sound and Lucasfilm that will bring virtual reality and augmented reality to Star Wars as an immersive and interactive experience for the fans!
