Watch the first trailer for Disney's incredible-looking Star Wars VR experience”

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will transport guests deep into the beloved Star Wars universe allowing them to walk freely and untethered throughout the multi-sensory experience with friends and family.

Visitors of the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando will be able to experience "Star Wars" in virtual reality at Disney Springs starting December 16: Location-based VR startup The Void announced at the Disney Accelerator Demo Day in Burbank, Calif. Wednesday that tickets for the 'Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire' experience are on sale effective immediately. Not sold? Lucasfilm has just released a trailer for the experience and has opened ticket sales.

"We are so excited about this magical collaboration between three first-to-market companies in the burgeoning out-of-home VR entertainment sector". 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.

With technology continuing to offer new ways to bring in as many viewers as possible, Disney may be getting a jump start by offering VR experiences as a marketing tool. Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will send teams of four, under the orders of the budding rebellion, to the lava planet Mustafar.

Judging by the clip, a team of four players will go undercover as Imperial Stormtroopers on an a hunt for imperial intelligence. "Alongside the pragmatic droid K-2S0, your team must navigate through an enemy facility walking into danger at every turn". You'll grab your blaster, solve puzzles, and fight giant lava monsters in an effort to fulfill the rebellion's orders. Visitors will experience sight, sound, touch, and smell as they "walk into real-time virtual reality that combines interactive sets, real-time effects, and incredible technology".
