The Estate of Marilyn Monroe and the Pulse Evolution Corporation are teaming up to produce a lifelike, virtual Marilyn Monroe animation. Pulse Evolution's industry-leading human animation technology will be used to create realistic holograms of Monroe that will be used to inspire and wow millennials.

As the most famous female celebrity of all time, Monroe's unmatched blend of physical attractiveness, talent and humor makes her an excellent person to bring back to life using modern technology. Crucially, Monroe continues to be an icon even among young people, who dominate the social media landscape.

While Pulse Evolution's animation technology is impressive, the key to the venture will be the humanity conveyed by Monroe's very image. Pulse also has Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley in its virtual performer repertoire, while the Authentic Brands Group that owns the rights to the Marilyn Monroe brand also has Muhammad Ali and Prince under its wing.
