This video for Star Wars: The Force Awakens puts the viewer on Rey’s speeder bike and takes you on a ride through the desert terrain of the planet Jakku. What takes this video to the next level is the fact that it offers us a 360-degree view of the world.
The video shows off the ruins from the Battle of Jakku, which includes the massive crashed Star Destroyer we saw in the first teaser for the film. You can also hear the new droid BB-8 at the end of the video.
The video comes from the official Star Wars Facebook page, and it's not the only 360-degree video that you'll find on Facebook today:
