Limited-Time, Hands-on Experience Opens Sunday, November 21, 2021 — complimentary to visitors at Downtown Disney® District
Meta Quest and ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm’s award-winning immersive entertainment studio, are offering a special Quest 2 preview of Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge coming to the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort, November 21, 2021 – January 5, 2022.
This hands-on preview version of ILMxLAB’s virtual reality experience expands the world of Batuu like never before! Once inside the Quest 2 headset, you’ll be immersed within sweeping 360 views of the Star Wars galaxy. The adventure takes place on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu, as depicted in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, the immersive epic land at Disneyland® Resort in California.
In the hands-on preview, you’ll take on the role of a droid repair technician in the first part of the journey near the Outer Rim. After fending off an attack by pirates, you crashland on Batuu and discover that anyone in the galaxy can become a hero (if their aim with a blaster is good enough). The adventure continues in Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge - Last Call, the recently-released expansion that adds more locations and new adventures from various eras of the Star Wars universe. If you keep an eye out, you might even get to experience some tales that put you in the training boots of an up-and-coming Jedi.
"We are excited for guests to virtually experience Seezelslak’s Cantina and meet Mubo (Owner of the Droid Depot!) at our Downtown Disney® District activation,” says Jose Perez III, Director. “ILMxLAB worked diligently expanding the story of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and we all hope our guests have a wonderful time visiting the strange and beautiful planet of Batuu in VR."
For a limited time, this complimentary preview experience will be offered daily, Noon – 8 p.m., adjacent to Star WarsTM Trading Post in the Downtown Disney® District.
This type of event is a first-ever for Meta Quest at the Disneyland® Resort, and those who try the game will get a $25 USD store credit for use in the Quest store, while supplies last. No reservations are required.
Stop by and venture to the far reaches of the galaxy this holiday season with the power of Quest 2 at Disneyland® Resort in California from November 21, 2021 until January 5, 2022. And the fun doesn’t have to stop there, because you can bring home the galaxy far, far away on Quest 2 with Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge and the recently released Last Call DLC to experience the full adventure for yourself.
