Star Wars: Project Porg – Raise and Train Porgs with help from C-3PO

Earlier this week we shared the news that ILMxLAB’s latest immersive experiment was Star Wars: Project Porg coming on Magic Leap in December, and we can now share some further news including the return of Anthony Daniels as C-3PO….

The AR experience will not be a game, instead, hardcore fans will be able to raise and train Porgs, like a more expensive and immersive Furby. The new experience will be available in December, exclusively for the Magic Leap One headset.

Anthony Daniels reprises his role as C-3PO for the Porg AR experience, offering tips to keep some of those unruly creatures under control. Attendees of the Magic Leap L.E.A.P. conference were treated to a short demo where the Porgs reacted to different things happening in their environment. A TV set was turned on as well as a Sonos speaker system, which ended with a nap in front of the TV. ILMxLab had this to say in a statement.

“In Project Porg, you will need to gain the trust and affection of your Porgs by offering them treats and playing with them. Teach them how to maneuver real-world environments with care instructions from Star Wars’ most meticulous droid, C-3PO.”

Magic Leap costs in excess of $2,000, so controlling Porgs is going to prove rather expensive! We hope we get to see a trailer soon.
