Two-part cinematic VR experience Jurassic World: Blue launches today

Today Universal Pictures and Felix & Paul Studios launched JURASSIC WORLD: BLUE in conjunction with the launch of the new Oculus Go standalone VR headset. The two-part cinematic virtual reality experience delivers a single, continuous take, combining live-action and CG in 360° 3D—resulting in some of the longest visual-effects shots ever created.

Colum Slevin, Head of Experiences, Oculus:

We’re thrilled to bring the magic of this iconic series to VR with Oculus Go. The fluid camera moves, as well as the phenomenal animation and rendering, create a sense of presence and immersion that makes Jurassic World: Blue a new high watermark in cinematic VR. 

Austin Barker, EVP, Universal Pictures Creative Content:

Universal is excited to partner once again with Felix & Paul Studios and release our new virtual reality companion experience to the Jurassic World series. Felix & Paul Studios has created a stunning experience, one that represents spectacular advancements in cinematic, narrative storytelling in VR. It’s thrilling to bring Jurassic World to life in this way.

Félix Lajeunesse, creative director and co-founder of Felix & Paul Studios:

Jurassic World: Blue invites viewers to immerse themselves in what it would feel like to be in close proximity with this stunning creature—with the mixture of striking beauty and awe that accompanies this unique VR experience.

Set on Isla Nublar, Jurassic World: Blue occurs four years after the catastrophic events in which Jurassic World has been abandoned and dinosaurs have overtaken the island. Amid the threat of volcanic eruption, we encounter the highly intelligent velociraptor Blue on her quest for survival. Viewers follow Blue as she hunts for food, searches for signs of fellow life, and battles some of the island’s most threatening predators ... amid the imminent destruction of the island. 

Directed by Félix Lajeunesse and Paul Raphaël, this VR experience was created by Felix & Paul Studios, Universal Pictures and Facebook’s Oculus and sports visual effects and animation by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) and sound by Headspace Studio. 

JURASSIC WORLD: BLUE Episode one launches today, and episode two is coming soon for Oculus Go and Oculus Rift.
