Introducing ‘Henry’ from Oculus Story Studio

We’re excited to announce Oculus Story Studio’s second VR experience, ‘Henry’, a heartwarming comedy about a loveable hedgehog, coming later this year. ‘Henry’ is directed by Ramiro Lopez Dau, whose work includes animation on films such as Pixar’s Brave and Monsters University.


We invite you to meet Henry today by visiting the official Henry microsite or the homepage, where Henry has taken over! We’ve also created a short teaser for the film to introduce you to Henry and his story:

Henry the hedgehog is an original character created for virtual reality by Story Studio’s new consulting production designer Kendal Cronkhite, who designed the look of the Dreamworks Madagascar films, and Bernhard Haux, previously one of Pixar’s top character artists.


Story Studio’s mission is to inspire and educate virtual reality creators and filmmakers everywhere. As part of this mission, all Rift owners will be able to experience ‘Henry’ for free when the Rift ships in Q1 2016.
