Check the synopsis of remembering down:

“Where do ideas come from? And where do they go when they’re forgotten?” These central questions are brought to life in ‘Remembering,’ an original short film from Emmy-winning director Elijah Allan-Blitz. The story follows a writer (played by the Academy Award winner Brie Larson) who loses a very important idea when her phone rings. Personified as golden light, this lost idea is found by the writer’s inner child, who takes us on a journey through the world of imagination It is easy to lose touch with this world, but each of us can be inspired by it, if we remember.

With a first-of-its-kind Augmented Reality app where the AR experience is triggered by the movie’s moving image, select Disney+ subscribers in the US can interact with the story by scanning the TV to extend The World of Imagination, to your living room.”

Brie Larson actually said it in the promotional video, calling remembering “the future of storytelling:”

“For the first time, you’ll be able to experience the future of storytelling in your own living room.”

If it’s successful, and as the technology continues to evolve, it begs the question of whether future Marvel projects will use AR, especially since Kevin Feige, Jon Favreau, and former Brie director Destin Daniel Cretton have all weighed in already.

But even though this original short is grounded in artificial reality, it’s also personal to the actress, especially since her partner Elijah Allen-Blitz directed the project.

now that remembering has made its Disney+ debut, it will be interesting to see how the short, its technology, and Brie Larson’s latest Disney role resonate with audiences.

remembering is now available to stream on Disney+.
