“A new virtual reality film will take audiences where they never expected to go: directly inside Anne Frank’s attic in 1942.”

Listed as one of the 5 best VR experiences at Comic Con along with experiences produced by HTC, FX, TNT, and Legendary Pictures.

“The incredible detail includes the actual diary where she would write down her experiences.”

“The producers — who’ve already mocked up a VR version of Anne’s room — think the new technology will be perfect way to share Anne’s story with younger generations.”

“Titled Anne, the movie aims to use cutting-edge technology so that the famous diarist’s story “can live on and reach as many young people in the world as possible”

“One of the most well-known stories from World War II and Nazi Germany is getting the virtual reality treatment on the silver screen.”

“Though Anne didn’t survive the Holocaust, her words immortalized her experience—and now, reports Entertainment Weekly’s Derek Lawrence, her story will become even more immersive thanks to a virtual reality movie”

“Anne aims to be a more experiential visit than the Anne Frank House museum — built on the site of the Secret Annex — can provide.”

“CGO Studios has made a name for itself creating virtual reality experiences that immerse viewers in historical events.”

“If only Wilbur and Orville Wright were alive to see this virtual reality re-creation of their first flight. They might conclude that the future has no need of an airplane, because virtual reality enables everyone to visit with each other in virtual space.”
