NISSAN JOINS FORCES WITH LUCASFILM Ltd.
AT THE 2017 LA AUTO SHOW
The first new nameplate launched in the last eight years, the new crossover utility will join Nissan’s best-selling Rogue and Rogue Sport CUVs in U.S. showrooms.
Additionally, Nissan is bringing Star Wars excitement to the show floor of the Los Angeles Auto Show. The fully immersive environment involves Star Wars-inspired show vehicles, a fleet of X-wing starfighter replicas and several interactive opportunities all in celebration of Nissan’s collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd. for Star Wars: The Last Jedi in theaters Dec. 15.
Fleet of X-wings
Fighting for The Resistance, a fleet of six X-wing starfighter replicas hovers over the Nissan stand on display for all to see. The X-wings are scale models designed to exacting film specifications and worthy members of the Resistance starfleet. Information on the front lines, the unmistakable spacecraft can be seen from nearly anywhere in the galaxy, or the show floor.
Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay Virtual Reality Experience
A requisite stop for any fan of virtual reality is Star Wars: Droid Repair Bay Virtual Reality Experience, created by ILMxLAB. The experience puts users inside a virtual repair bay on General Leia’s ship where they can interact with BB-8 and other brand-new droids created for this story. Anyone who misses this opportunity will have the chance to participate in the VR experience at select participating Nissan dealers across the country.
