Secrets of the Empire transports a team of players into the Star Wars world and can be experienced via The Void. But we now have a clearer idea of the virtual reality experience one Disney resort plans to offer this December.

"People have longed for a chance to step into the Star Wars universe and this incredible new hyper-reality experience will allow them to do just that in a totally unique way", added Vicki Dobbs Beck, executive in charge, ILMxLAB.

Under the orders of the budding rebellion, your team will travel to the molten planet of Mustafar.

To celebrate, Disney has released the first trailer for the room-wide, walk-around "Secrets of the Empire" experience, along with details of the story. The mission: to recover Imperial intelligence vital to the rebellion's survival.

The team, disguised as stormtroopers and strapped with blasters, will tag along with a K-2S0 droid and "navigate through an enemy facility walking into danger at every turn".

"At THE VOID, we combine the magic of illusions, advanced technology and virtual reality to create fully immersive social experiences that take guests to new worlds", Curtis Hickman, co-founder and chief creative officer at THE VOID, explained earlier this year. The members of the team will have to solve puzzles and fight lava monsters.

The experience, which has been produced by The Void, Lucasfilm and ILMxLab, will also open at Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim starting January 5. Tickets are $29.95 and the experience lasts roughy 30 minutes. One of the greatest positives of a conglomerate like Disney buying Star Wars was the scope for this kind of stuff to become a (virtual) reality.
