Not everything is in the movies. We have found out via ILMxLAB (Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment division), that the virtual reality project Star WarsTM: Trials on Tatooine is coming to the virtual reality app Viveport.
Created by Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment division ILMxLAB, Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine is a VR experiment that transports you to the iconic twin sun planet seen many times in the Star Wars series. You’re stepping onto those desert sands some time after the events of Return of the Jedi, as Luke Skywalker wants to rebuild the Jedi Order, and you, as a hopeful Padawan, wish to become part of it.
You can find the complete article on this exciting new experience here.
There is surely to be more info released as the twin suns set in the horizon so stay tuned, as we will update this post throughout the day so keep checking in!
