4DX theaters have some more news regarding The Rise of Skywalker release. They’re releasing a new 4DX version for the last week of the movie’s release.



The 4DX Force Edition


Star Wars fans will be treated to an enhanced 4DX experience during the 4th week of the release. This alternate version will re-engage fans to return theaters and experience Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker all over again with enhanced ‘Force’ effects. Through the 4DX Force Edition audiences will better be able to feel the effects and power of the force as it’s used in multiple scenes and by the main characters, Rey, Kylo Ren, and antagonist Emperor Palpatine.


The 4DX Force Edition will contain:

  • Enhanced vibration
    • Audience will be able to ‘feel’ the power of the Force used by characters via strong vibrations. Vibrations will be felt through the backs of the seats and increase with  strength of the force used.
  • Force vibrations are used when characters:
    • Speak to each other using the force
    • Lift objects using the force
    • Pull or stop objects using the force
    • Concentrate using the force
    • Feel a disturbance in the force (examples: character’s death, destruction, etc.)



Rey wields the force to lift an object into the air. 4DX audiences will feel subtle vibrations in their seat timed to how hard Rey is concentrating and how difficult the object is to lift. In this scene the object is small and the accompanying vibration would also be subtle.


Kylo Ren communicates to Rey using the force. Whenever Rey and Kylo Ren use the force, even for communication, 4DX audiences will feel a light vibration in their seat signifying the presence of the force.
