star wars: vader immortal

As the Star Wars universe keeps expanding, so too do the ways we experience it. There’s the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge theme park at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California coming soon; there are comics, TV, movies, and a whole bunch of titles on the upcoming Disney streaming service. But the most innovative way that Lucasfilm will be expanding on Star Wars will be in virtual reality.

For the past two years, Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment division ILMxLAB and The Dark Knight screenwriter David Goyer have been teasing a Darth Vader VR project that would add a new layer onto the tragic hero-turned-villain of the Star Wars saga. Now the first Star Wars: Vader Immortal trailer has been released by ILMxLAB.

Goyer was hired to write the script for DC and Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern Corps movie alongside writer Justin Rhodes. Not long after, there were whispers that Goyer might end up directing the movie as well, but that rumor remains unconfirmed and the movie is still currently without a director.

Since then, we haven’t heard any concrete updates about the project. But that’s changed today, since an outlet caught up with Goyer yesterday and got him to confirm that the movie is “still in the works.” But it’s what he said next that paints a more interesting picture.

ILMxLab has been doing a lot of interesting experimental work. The company hopes to develop the future of storytelling experiences using new technologies like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. At the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, the geniuses behind the new Industrial Light & Magic company told me that Lucasfilm Story Group had mapped out the next half dozen years of Star Wars stories and beyond, and they are already developing experiences — some which will be available in VR, others in other platforms — which will be created by big-name filmmakers and top screenwriters and intersect with the stories we will see on screen.

At Star Wars Celebration Europe 2017, ILMxLab announced their first big project, a Darth Vader VR project that will be created by David Goyer, screenwriter of The Dark Knight and Man of Steel and director of films like Blade: Trinity and The Unborn. We reported on this briefly over the weekend when it was announced, but now we bring you more information and some quotes from Goyer himself, who claims that his virtual reality Star Wars story will make you cry.
