'Star Wars' goes immersive in NY

With the final episode of the 'Star Wars' saga days away from premiering, an 11-room exhibit in New York will celebrate the 'far, far away galaxy,' as Dolby's Stuart Bowling explains.

STORY: "Star Wars" holds a special place in the entertainment world, and in view of the upcoming conclusion of the 42-year, nine-episode saga, Dolby Laboratories and Walt Disney Studios are presenting an interactive exhibit celebrating the entire Skywalks saga.

The exhibit is spread across two floors, 11 rooms and 20,000 square feet (1,850 square meters).

Memorabilia like photos of "Princess Leah," movie posters and a Light Sabers are on display for interaction.

The exhibit is being organized ahead of the theatrical release of the ninth episode, "Star Wars' Rise of Skywalker," later this month.

"This is an amazing opportunity for 'Star Wars' fans, people that are waiting for the 'Rise of Skywalker,' to get a little bit of a Star Wars fix," Stuart Bowling, the director of content and creative relations for Dolby Laboratories, told Reuters.

"It allows the public to be able to come in and experience Dolby's, audio and imaging technologies wrapped around 11 immersive exhibits." Central to the exhibit is a 360 degree immersive display featuring the trailer for the movie.

"Star Wars" famously takes place in "a long time ago," but the most recent episodes feature the most up-to-date technology the exhibit is able to feature.

The exhibit opens to the public on Friday (December 6) and will be open from 1 to 8 pm until January 5, with shifting hours during the holidays.

"Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker" officially opens to the public in theaters on Friday, December 20.
