Disneyland is creating Star Wars virtual reality rides

VR and more importantly, the Force, is set to come to Walt Disney resorts in the near future in the form of Star Wars-themed virtual reality rides.

Epic Games co-founder Tim Sweeney announced today that Disney is working on Star Wars VR rides for its various parks. This is one of a number of Star Wars focused VR projects currently in the works, with Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine for the HTC Vive recently dropping and a new experience based on Rogue One headed to PlayStation VR in the near future. Industrial Light and Magic’s VR-focused division is also working on a VR film focused on Darth Vader as well.

Last week Disney announced a partnership with Oculus to create new VR experiences based on its properties, though the content isn’t set to hit the Facebook-owned headset until later this year.
