Today, ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment studio, revealed that Dok-Ondar of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be coming to Part II of the virtual reality experience, “Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge.”
Concept art featuring the mysterious Ithorian and his translation droid, both seated in Seezelslak’s Cantina, was released by the studio alongside the announcement, which you can take a closer look at below.
“Dok-Ondar and his famous antiquities shop rests at the heart of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. At ILMxLAB we are having a blast exploring more of his story and building on the lore for one of Black Spire Outpost’s most memorable characters,” said Jose Perez III, director. “Being next to Dok-Ondar in virtual reality for the first time is truly a magical moment and we can’t wait for fans to experience it.”
An infamous collector who buys, sells and trades rare and valuable relics in his Den of Antiquities in Black Spire Outpost, Dok-Ondar is known as the gatekeeper of the black market — thanks to his collection of artifacts that is unrivaled in the galaxy.
“Dok-Ondar is as legendary as the antiquities he has collected from across the galaxy. From the first time we heard about him in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story,’ we knew that there was something mysterious about this infamous Ithorian,” said Scott Trowbridge, portfolio creative executive for Walt Disney Imagineering. “And although we’ve been able to learn more about him in the comics or even visit him in person at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, I’m thrilled that fans can now further connect and step even deeper inside his hidden past in Part II of ‘Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge.'”
Part II of this unique VR experience will launch later this year on the Oculus Quest.
“Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is expertly built for the Quest platform, with high fidelity graphics, nonstop action, and engaging narratives all running smoothly at 72fps (frames per second,” said Ruth Bram, executive producer at Oculus Studios. “We can’t wait for our VR audience to continue their adventure on Batuu later this year.”
