OAK BROOK, Ill. — Looking to attract business from the young adult set, and also to capitalize on the hype surrounding Canadian director James Cameron’s upcoming oeuvre Avatar, McDonald’s has announced plans to bring unique digital experiences to its customers through a partnership with Cameron and Twentieth Century Fox.

“We’sre engaging consumers around the world with one of the most unique digital experiences we’sve ever created to share James Cameron’s vision for Avatar,” said McDonald’s global chief marketing officer, Mary Dillon. “McDonald’s partnership with Avatar gives us the opportunity to bring this adventure alive in our restaurants and online with innovative technology and creativity, all at the value customers expect from us.”
