According to a release, Disney who owns Star War is now working on the next big thing. Earlier today, Disney revealed a deal to use Nokia’s $60,000 (roughly £43,000 or AU$78,000) virtual reality camera to capture behind the scenes of future movies.

One of several recent cameras designed particularly with VR filmmaking at heart is the Nokia Ozo known as a 360-degree camera.

The Ozo By has eight different lenses in eight different directions which allows it to stitch together a spherical 3D video where you can turn your head to look in any direction.

In this case, “there” could be the set of a Star Wars, Marvel or new Indiana Jones film. They are all properties owned by Disney.

Technically, it not certain that Disney will decide to use Nokia’s Ozo for those specific franchises only that Disney will make “special VR content for a range of Disney films” as part of the deal.

One of the first Ozo videos shot by Disney was simply a red carpet experience for Disney’s The Jungle Book.

But Nokia Technologies president Ramzi Haidamus asserts that his camera won’t just be a “sideshow” for Disney films. He says Disney is currently testing the camera to create a variety of content, including original work — and that we should expect to see the making of a “very high-visibility movie” shot with the Nokia Ozo.

Nokia also has an exploratory partnership with 20th Century Fox, but Haidamus says that the Disney deal is the first where a film studio has committed to make content with the Ozo camera and share it with the world.
