AKA Wade Owen Watts, depicted here by Tye Sheridan, in Spielberg’s precarious film attempt at the novel Ready Player One. Here we see Wade immersed, presumably, in the world of Oasis as his Avatar Parzival. Tantalizingly, we are shone not a bit of the virtual reality cosmos that is the Oasis, instead we see the protagonist as he appears IRL, within the cavity of one of the vertically piled mobile homes of the impoverished “Stacks”.
What we are shown is Wade’s collection articles and magazine covers depicting programmer and co-founder of the Oasis, James Halliday, who put in place the easter eggs Wade and other Egg Hunters are searching for. Through the assorted junk, trash, and antique turn of the 21st century electronics we are given only a taste of the futuristic dystopian setting that Wade seeks to escape through the Oasis. Detail oriented, we are sure Spielberg hid more for focused fans to find.
Much like the Programmer Halliday who Spielberg fictionally inspired.
More details as they emerge!
