Excellent job sir! Anthony Daniels is returning to voice C-3PO, though for the first time in virtual reality, in the upcoming Oculus game Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge which will be available “this holiday season.” Let’s check out all of the details from the press release, including a video teaser of the experience, which has fans playing a droid repair technician who crash lands on Batuu after a pirate attack. In typical Star Wars fashion, they’ll get swept up in a grand adventure on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost, and are sure to see some familiar faces along the way.
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge will give players the opportunity to live their own adventure and explore a new part of a galaxy far, far away in virtual reality. The original story will feature both new and iconic characters from the Star Wars universe with multiple styles of gameplay and difficulty settings to accommodate a wide variety of players, from Star Wars fans to VR gamers alike.
Primarily taking place between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on the planet of Batuu, the adventure is set on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the epic new land at Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. This experience will extend the storytelling of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge like never before and for the first time, at home.
Anthony Daniels, as you might expect, is thrilled to be returning as everyone’s favorite neurotic protocol droid:
“Along with the joy of working with the super-talented team at ILMxLAB, I am so thrilled to bring C-3PO to life again in this fascinating dimension,” said Anthony Daniels, C-3PO. “I love it that fans will actually be able to be a part of his perilous adventures, standing beside him, on the distant planet of Batuu. It may be virtual reality, but believe me, reality will quickly take over as players personally interact with C-3PO right in the middle of the action. I hope fans will be as amazed as I am.”
Here are more details about the game and the overall experience including more details on others involved in the project:
“At ILMxLAB, we have been hard at work, crafting tales, and expanding the world of Black Spire Outpost, which was created by our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering,” said Perez. “Fans will be able to explore the wilds of Batuu and live out a lighthearted Star Wars experience that will continue to evolve over time. There’s something really special about standing face to face with iconic characters like C-3PO and Yoda, and we can’t wait for our fans to step into Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge this holiday season.”
In Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, fans play a droid repair technician who crash lands on Batuu after a pirate attack. In typical Star Wars fashion, they’ll get swept up in a grand adventure on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost. Players can hang out with Seezelslak (Bobby Moynihan) in his cantina and experience his legendary tales. They will also receive important missions to complete in the wilds of Batuu, encountering new and iconic characters along the way, like the pirate Tara Rashin (Debra Wilson) and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels).
C-3PO, R2-D2, and even Yoda, among other new cast of characters? Could be a lot of fun. Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge will launch this holiday season on Oculus Quest. Other details about specific release timing and pricing will be announced at a later date.
