Nokia has announced that its multi-year virtual reality (VR) technology agreement with The Walt Disney Studios will include developing immersive experiences to complement Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which arrives in theaters in December.
The multi-year agreement between Nokia and Disney is designed to support the creation of VR experiences to complement Disney’s theatrical releases. Through the agreement, Nokia is providing its OZO VR camera and software solutions to give Disney marketers and filmmakers the tools to create immersive, transformative VR content.
Previous VR projects included experiences for Pete’s Dragon, Alice Through the Looking Glass and The Jungle Book.
“Utilizing the Nokia OZO to capture our behind-the-scenes material allows viewers to be transported to fantastical locations and virtually visit the incredible sets where their favorite Star Wars scenes were captured,” said Brian Miller, senior VP of Franchise Creative & Strategy at Lucasfilm.
More details on the VR content and availability for the Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be announced at a future date.
