The 30-minute attraction, originally announced in early August, will include groups of four participants taking on the roles of undercover rebels on an Imperial base.
The mission, according to a newly released trailer, is “to recover Imperial intelligence critical to our survival.”
ILMxLab partnered with The Void, a virtual-reality company, for Secrets of the Empire. Participants will wear headsets in a maze for interactions taking place in a digital world.
The Disney Springs debut probably will coincide with the next wave of “Star Wars” mania. The “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” film goes into theaters Dec. 15.
If nothing else, the new experience will help fill the gap while construction moves forward on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the dedicated land within Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park, and the Disney “Star Wars” hotel that has so many people fired up and all ready to check in.
