Universal Pictures has created many of the world’s most iconic cinematic franchises. Franchises that have surged beyond the theater to generate billions of dollars in revenue from video games to action figures. Each of these campaigns are fueled by the consumers’ appetite to bring the worlds of their favorite movies into their lives. Now, with the help of AR and VR, Universal has reversed this dynamic by bringing the consumer into the worlds of keystone franchises. From in-store activations to social-driven campaigns, the limits of immersive technologies are still being defined. Thus, important strategies, considerations, and tools are needed to make the most of this exciting new technology.
