The official press release for the film provides a few details about the premise of the film from the director, which seems to mirror the real world shift from console and arcade gaming to online gaming. “To take these characters we love and have them enter the enormous world of the internet has given us so much to explore,” said Moore. “Our production team has been hard at work designing a world that takes something we all think we know – the internet – but shows it in a whole new, imaginative way.”
