Planet Jakku is one of the few Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens locations that we've gotten a good look at. The latest peek at the planet comes from a 360 degree video posted on Star Wars' Facebook page.

You can find the video here, which is a fly-through of the planet and the remains of a giant war that dropped both Rebel and Empire ships on the planet's surface. You can drag the video to look in any direction to take in all the sights.

Jakku and the battle that dropped all the debris on the planet will be part of the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront. DICE has released some art from the level, which you can see here.

With Facebook's financial stake in Oculus, and this new 360 degree video technology, you have wonder if the two will overlap at some point in the future. Maybe Oculus will allow viewing of these types of videos in the near future.
