Users can bring characters from the Disney+ series, including Mando and even the cute baby Yoda, directly into their living rooms.

Using ARCore technology, Google has created scenes that can interact with the user’s environment and allow for better 3D rendering. Players can also discover and unlock other effects depending on their actions. A function to take pictures and share them is also available.
