This article contains major spoilers for the VR experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and for the film Rogue One.

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire is a VR-based experience that recently opened in Anaheim, Orlando, and London. The experience is powered by The Void, a company that blends virtual reality headsets with haptic feedback suits, body tracking, and physical environments to create unique, immersive storytelling. For Secrets, The Void partnered with ILMxLAB, a division of Lucasfilm that works with experimental technology. Additionally, the story told through the experience was created with the involvement of the Lucasfilm Story Group, and according to them, it’s canon.
