At the Disney sites, there are two VR experiences that guests can try: Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, which has been open since late 2017, and Ralph Breaks VR (featuring Wreck-It Ralph and friends), which opened late last year.

The Walt Disney Company and ILMxLAB (Lucasfilm’s award-winning immersive entertainment division) have collaborated with The VOID on both of these experiences. In addition, The VOID and ILMxLAB have announced that they also will collaborate with Marvel Studios on an untitled Marvel experience coming in 2019. Three other original Disney hyper-reality experiences will follow, in collaboration with Walt Disney Animation Studios.

The expansion of the VR experiences into shopping centers will bring this new form of entertainment to even more people. There has been no word as yet on which VR experiences will be available in the new locations, or when other VR experiences will be offered.
