Disney, on a high after launching its streaming service, will be hoping that the holiday season brings good tidings. The studio’s latest marquee project, ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker , will hit theaters on December 20. The latest iteration in the Star Wars franchise has garnered significant interest from fans, and also business and branding deals with big companies.

Augmented reality (AR) has been the buzzword in Silicon Valley, with both Apple and Google testing systems capable of processing visually-driven AR content. Audio-based AR technology has undergone incremental improvements, and fans of the Star Wars franchise will now be able to stream old movies from the Disney+ app with 360-degree AR sound support with Bose headphones.

Once AR support is enabled, owners of Bose hardware can relive classic scenes from Star Wars movies like ‘A New Hope’ or ‘The Force Awakens’.

The audio hardware major announced that it is launching a co-branded audio experience with AR support to coincide with the release of ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’. To unlock the immersive audio experience promised by Bose, one has to own a pair of Headphones 700, Bose Frames, or QuietComfort 35 Headphones II, and register their device with the official Star Wars app.

Once AR support is enabled, owners of Bose hardware can relive classic scenes from Star Wars movies like ‘A New Hope’ or ‘The Force Awakens’. The device detects the orientation and movement of the wearer’s body, transporting her to the thick of the action. Availing the offer also unlocks access to behind-the-scenes content on the app.

Bose is also bringing out a limited number of QuietComfort 35 Headphones II to celebrate the partnership with Star Wars. The colour scheme and design borrows from Star Wars universe. One side of the headphones is jet black and embossed with the Sith insignia in red. The other side inverts the colour pattern, and features black motifs on a red background. The co-branded headset will set you back by USD 399.99.
