New ‘Hyper-Reality’ Star Wars VR experience coming to Westfield, Stratford next month

FROM a galaxy far, far away comes the first multi-sensory immersive virtual experience where you move freely, hear, touch, feel and even smell an environment as you explore it with friends and companions.

ILMxLAB and The VOID, technology companies, today announced that the first-of-its-kind hyper-reality experience, Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, is moving to Westfield Stratford City next month.

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will transport guests deep into the Star Wars universe allowing them to walk freely and untethered on an interactive stage.

The groundbreaking experience will open to the public for a limited time only at Westfield Stratford City in the Arena on the first floor starting at 10am on March 29.

Cliff Plumer, chief executive officer at The VOID said: “Hyper-reality experiences allow us to fully immerse ourselves within worlds that were beyond our reach until now.

“The power of The VOID will allow guests to step into Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and not only see this spectacular world, but also hear, feel, touch and even smell as they realize they are a part of this incredible story.”

Anna Hill, Chief Marketing Officer, Disney UK & Ireland, said: “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will bring much-loved characters and stories, and the sheer exhilaration of Star Wars to life for UK audiences in a spectacular and immersive way, and we can’t wait to have people experience it at Westfield Stratford.”
