Learn how the virtual Batuu came to be

Ever wondered how Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was brought into virtual reality with Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition? For this May the 4th, our friends at Disney Parks spoke with Jose Perez III, Director of the experience, and Scott Trowbridge, the Portfolio Creative Executive at Walt Disney Imagineering, to learn more about how our teams worked together to virtually expand upon the truly incredible storytelling at the Parks. You can read all about it on the Disney Parks Blog.
And, on our blog, we’ve taken a peek beyond the spires with a few members of the development team to learn about their favorite memories of creating the experience. We spoke about creating an experience where you get to play as assassin droid IG-88, about bringing the virtual world of Batuu to life, and about bringing a First Order facility into VR.
