Diana Williams – Content Strategist, ILMxLAB
Diana Williams is an executive in the Lucasfilm Story Group, the team tasked with developing narrative cohesion and connectivity within the Star Wars universe, and Content Strategist for ILMxLAB
ILMxLAB combines the talent of Lucasfilm, ILM and Skywalker Sound, and focuses on compelling storytelling, technological innovation and world-class production. From holding a lightsaber in Trials on Tatooine – A Star Wars Virtual Reality Experiment, to migrating across a moonlit desert landscape in Alejandro Iñarritu’s Academy Award Winning experience Carne y Arena, and stepping into a hyper-reality experience in Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, ILMxLAB is reinventing the way stories are told and experienced.
