NYCC 2019: 'Vader Immortal' Panel Recap

By: Dominic Jones

New York Comic Con kicked off today in the big apple, and ILMxLAB helped get things going with a panel previewing Episodes 2 & 3 or Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series.  The panel was moderated by Indie Wire's Christian Blauvelt, and featured Vader Immortal director Ben Snow and Lucasfilm Story Group member Matt Martin.  Over the course of the hour long discussion, Snow and Martin gave fans an overview of what Vader Immortal is all about, the challenges faced when creating immersive virtual reality (VR) experiences, and teased what's to come in the third and final chapter.

I was in the audience for the panel and live tweeted what we heard.  You can read all my tweets from the panel below,
Episodes 1 & 2 of Vader Immortal are available now for download now for Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift, with Episode 2 only launching last week.  The third and final episode in the series will launch at a later, still unknown, date. 

Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series is written by David S. Goyer and features unparalleled VR experiences created by ILMxLAB.
