Ready Player One (2018) is the Steven Spielberg film based off of Ernest Cline's novel. James Halliday created of a virtual reality world called the OASIS. Upon his death, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter egg, which will give the finder his fortune. It follows the story of Wade, known as Parzival in OASIS, as he and his friends fight to find the Easter egg before Nolan Sorrento and IOI can get their hands on it. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Lena Waithe, Simon Pegg, T.J. Miller, and Mark Rylance.
My movie guide contains 65 questions and an answer key. I have also included a Character Guide of the main characters to help as students watch the films. I did leave off Aech's name of Helen and Morrow's name of Curator so that it would not give anything away from the film. I also included a book vs. the movie debrief worksheet as well. There is not an answer key for the debrief worksheet since the answers can be numerous and will vary. The film is 140 minutes in length and is rated PG-13. I would plan on giving three hours to this activity. It would allow time to complete the comparison worksheet and allow for debrief/class discussion.
This film would be great for viewing after reading the book or for End of the Year activities.
