ILMxLAB launches Lightsaber Dojo, new Star Wars VR experience for attractions

ILMxLAB – a subsidiary of Lucasfilm – has launched a new virtual reality (VR)-based experience for visitor attractions.

Based on the hugely popular Star Wars IP, Lightsaber Dojo will allow players to train with a lightsaber and the Force against waves of training droids and creatures from movie franchise.

Wearing an Oculus Quest VR headset, fans will begin the experience by stepping into a pop-up training arena, created in collaboration with location-based VR company Nomadic.

They are then transported to Mustafar, the fiery planet that Darth Vader calls home.

To begin their training, fans will choose from an assortment of lightsabers used by classic Star Wars characters, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mace Windu – and Darth Vader.

They will also be able to use the Force to grab their enemies, trigger traps, and throw their lightsaber across the room.

Afterwards, fans will be able to compare their scores with other players on a national leaderboard as they hone their skills.

Lightsaber Dojo is an extension of the award-winning Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series.

ILMxLAB Executive in Charge Vicki Dobbs Beck said: "“In Vader Immortal, audiences were able to feel what it was like to battle with a lightsaber in virtual reality.

"We’re thrilled to bring that sense of wish fulfillment to even more fans with the new Lightsaber Dojo experience.”

The first six Lightsaber Dojo pop-ups have now been delivered to Cinemark Theatres and Simon Centers in the US and Canada.

Jose Perez III, supervisor, creative development and experience design at ILMxLAB, said: “With Lightsaber Dojo you can use your lightsaber and the Force to stun, slice, and crush your enemies.

“That’s a dream come true for Star Wars fans — and it’s more exciting when you’re competing against your friends.”

ILMxLAB is Lucasfilm's immersive entertainment studio.
