Did you feel that? We just sensed a disturbance in the Force–but luckily for us, this time it was the good kind. It felt as if millions of voices suddenly spoke out, telling their friends and family how they would’ve directed famous Star Wars scenes if they were in control. Those people must’ve just downloaded the new Star Wars Scene Maker app from the iOS App Store, which allows fans to retell stories from the iconic film franchise in an all new way.
Already named an Editor’s Choice pick in Apple’s App Store, Star Wars Scene Maker gives fans a special set of tools, allowing them to create, control, customize, capture and share their own 3D animated Star Wars scenes. Featuring 3D models of characters, vehicles, and environments, Scene Maker allows you to zoom in, pull back and explore a number of Star Wars scenes, with the freedom to place characters and vehicles wherever you choose, customizing them to create new storylines and dialogue.
Three movable cameras can be maneuvered and switched to different film modes, with options to rotate and adjust vertical heights to give scene makers complete creative control of how they film their scenes. Additionally, iconic music and dialogue deepen the scene-making experience, while options to record original dialogue expand the level of customization. A save and share option provides opportunities for fans to socialize their content on Facebook and YouTube.
The first app in the Scene Maker series launches with iconic scenes from the original trilogy: “The Battle of Endor,” from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, “Cloud City Duel” from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and “Death Star Trench Run” from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. “The Battle of Endor” is free with download, and each additional content pack is $2.99, or $3.99 for both.
The Scene Maker apps will continue to feature content from the Star Wars Saga, with plans to expand to new content from the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series on Disney XD. Additional content packs will be released through app updates, and will be available through in-app purchase.
