Recently, "meta-universe" has exploded rapidly in various fields, but how to construct and develop it in film and television works still needs to be explored and thought. Ready Player One is a film and television work about the "meta-universe". Through the integration of film narrative and game elements, the film builds a virtual world in the "meta-universe" that is different from reality. The analysis of the film is helpful to promote the construction and development of films and television works related to the "meta-universe".
