Last week we got an inadvertent early peek at a new Star Wars VR experience from Industrial Light & Magic, and now the full trailer has been revealed. RoadtoVR has the Trials on Tatooine trailer in its full glory, and it's even better in motion than the stills could reveal. You no longer have to take our word for it, this HTC Vive-linked "experiment" is way better than the Jakku Spy app that came out for Google Cardboard last year.

Unfortunately there's still not much available in the way of details, but it's possible ILMxLab will have more to say this week during the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco. What is new however, is a nearly three minute video encouraging prospective employees to "join the force," showing off even more of the VR projects ILM has in the works. Check out both videos embedded below, and if we spend some time in virtual reality with R2-D2 and company we'll let you know how it turns out.
