Darth Vader Does Not Look Happy in the First Teaser for His Star Wars VR Story

Admittedly, Darth Vader rarely looks happy—probably something to with the mask—but there’s something extra ominous about the way he slowly turns and ignites his lightsaber in this quick teaser video for ILMxLAB’s upcoming VR project.

This is indeed the one announced last weekend during Star Wars Celebration Europe and which will be written by David S. Goyer. We still don’t know whether the VR will put you inside Vader’s mask, or if you’ll be some poor Rebel scum being mercilessly chased by the Dark Lord of the Sith. I’d be happy with either, really.

Darth Vader isn’t happy?

I wonder why.

Padme: Annie, I didn’t die suddenly because “I lost the will to live” Also since you're an opulent lord of the sith now, I’m seeking child support for twins!
