Every day we get closer to the release of The Force Awakens and as each day comes along we seem to get new content. Today’s bit of magic comes directly from the Official Star Wars Facebook page. Get closer to the action then ever before in this 360 immersive video set on the new planet of Jakku which was heavily featured in the latest Star Wars Teaser.

Speed across the Jakku desert from Star Wars: The Force Awakens with this immersive 360 experience created exclusively for Facebook.

I have never seen one of these in a video form, 360 images have been around for years but a video is a step in the right direction. I love the detail that went into this, the Star Destroyer and even the small Land Speeders that rushed by. This would be an amazing experience in a theatre, in fact the possibilities for something like this could be endless. Forget 3D. actually being part of the world would blow my mind.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opens in Australia on December 17th
