Today at Star Wars Celebration Chicago the ILMxLAB team took a deep dive into what fans can expect from our latest narrative adventure, Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series — and there were a lot of details to share.
Fans already knew from our previous announcement that Vader Immortal is a three-part virtual reality series coming to the new Oculus Quest headset, and that it focuses on one of the galaxy’s most sinister villains: Darth Vader. During our panel on the Celebration Stage, however, writer and executive producer David S. Goyer revealed that none other than actress and comedian Maya Rudolph (The Good Place, Bridesmaids) stars in the experience, playing a quick-witted droid co-pilot named ZOE3 that audiences will interact with throughout their journey.
“Much in the way Alan Tudyk did with K-2SO, we needed somebody for this role that could create a unique character using their improvisation and performance skills,” said Goyer. “Maya truly was the first person we thought of, right from the very beginning, and her contributions and sense of humor have guided ZOE3 every step of the way.”
