‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Interactive Video Speeds Viewers across the Jakku Desert

     September 23, 2015


We’ve yet to see a new trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but in the meantime, viewers can now take a short speeder trip across the blazing sands of Jakku in this new 360-degree video experience. It’s a fun little ride that lets people take a look on all sides of their desert speeder as they pass by the wreckage of a crashed Star Destroyer while meeting a few of Jakku’s creatures and humanoids on the way. Sharp-eyed viewers might even be able to spot a few clues as to the plot of the upcoming movie, though I personally didn’t see anything of merit so that’s total speculation on my part. (Apparently there’s at least a little BB-8 rolling around out there somewhere.)

Opening in U.S. theaters December 18th, Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, Domhnall Gleeson, Mark HamillCarrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’oAnthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Max von Sydow.
