These 8-bit openings of your favorite TV shows were created as part of a promotional campaign for Hollywood blockbuster ‘Ready Player One.’
‘Ready Player One’ is Steven Spielberg’s newest Hollywood blockbuster, based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name. Despite the film already set to become a world phenomenon, animator Ryan Hooley and musician Todd Bryanton collaborated to help promote the movie with retro 8-bit remakes of some of your favorite TV shows: Friends, Full House, Two and a Half Men and the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
If you have not seen it yet, ‘Ready Player One’ is set in the future (2045) where people escape their chaotic reality with the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe. The movie is also a celebration of the 80’s and everything iconic from that time.
Although only two of these four TV shows started in the 80’s (Full House and Fresh Prince), Hooley’s animated 8-bit show openings are a perfect tribute to the pop-culture and media nostalgia the movie celebrates.
“We wanted to have fun on our social platforms with an homage to the ’80s,” Warner Bros. TV President and CMO Lisa Gregorian.
