Warner Bros.Get Animated Invasion LA
To tap into millennial nostalgia, we brought our animations to life through a contemporary lens with Get Animated.
01 — Activation
Get Animated is a social hub centered around exclusive collaborations with tastemakers—artists, creators, stylists—granting them the platform to reinterpret classic Warner Bros. cartoons in their own unique style. In-feed, this comes to life as an editorialized space filled with fresh takes on classic franchises. IRL, it’s the Get Animated Invasion— an experiential activation where consumers can relive their childhoods through interactive worlds immersed with memorable characters.
