Lucasfilm and Industrial Light & Magic have created the ILM Experience Lab (ILMxLAB) to create an "experimental entertainment" experience that includes "virtual reality, augmented reality, theme park entertainment, and narrative-based experiences for future platofrms", THR reports. 

The project will give fans the opportunity to interact with the characters and settings of the Star Wars universe. 

"Anything and everything is what you can expect," said Lucasfilm executive vp and ILM president Lynwen Brennan, speaking with THR “The wonderful thing about the Star Wars universe is that there are so many stories that have yet to been explored. We are not restricting that universe [to the stories in the existing films]. All will be telling stories — that’s one of our core principles — with a point of view and emotion.”

According to Brennan, the Star Wars content will be available for mass market VR glasses, and specialized VR and AR, and immersive cinema. The projects will be created by ILM artists who are working on Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This sounds like an innovative project that Star Wars fans would enjoy. Check out the video below:
