A brand-new ‘Star Wars’ hyper-reality attraction is coming to Walt Disney World.

The Void, the company behind this unique experience, has released a first look video of the “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire.” Watch it below.

As reported back in August, “Secrets of the Empire” will use VR headsets, physical sets and interactive effects to transport you into the middle of a Star Wars galaxy.

Teams will go undercover as Stormtroopers in an effort to recover Imperial intelligence that’s crucial to the Rebellion’s survival.  

Participants will be able to freely roam and interact in the multi-sensory world.

The Void, in partnership with Lucasfilm’s ILMxLab, is bringing the attraction to Disney Springs on Dec. 16.

The experience will be available through Feb. 14, according to The Void’s website.

Tickets are now available for $29.95.

“Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire” will also be available on Jan. 5 at Downtown Disney at Disneyland.
