OAK BROOK, Ill. — Looking to attract business from the young adult set, and also to capitalize on the hype surrounding Canadian director James Cameron’s upcoming oeuvre Avatar, McDonald's has announced plans to bring unique digital experiences to its customers through a partnership with Cameron and Twentieth Century Fox.
Cameron provided an overview of his new film, while Oscar-winning producer Jon Landau led a guided tour of Pandora through McDonald's digital content. "McDonald's has taken my vision of Pandora from the big screen to the computer screen and beyond," Cameron said. "Avatar has been my dream for 14 years, and I am extremely happy with how McDonald's is bringing it to life in their restaurants and online."
Landau, who collaborated with McDonald's to develop the digital experiences, said, "People are going to be captivated by the realism of their experiences. McDonald's is bringing Avatar's world to life using new cutting-edge technologies to offer that 'wow' factor. They're really cool."
