Lionsgate is planning a South Korean theme park featuring seven zones devoted to its successful franchises such as The Hunger Games, The Twilight Saga and Now You See Me as well as the upcoming Robin Hood movie.
In partnership with Landing Jeju Development, Lionsgate’s first branded outdoor theme park will be developed in the Jeju Shinhwa World, an integrated development that will also be home to luxury hotels such as Four Seasons Resort Jeju Island.
Spanning approximately 122,000m2, Lionsgate Movie World is expected to commence construction in 2018 and open in 2019.
It is also the largest destination attraction to date in Lionsgate’s three-year-old portfolio of branded theme parks, entertainment centres and other attractions in the US, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Movie scenes will be recreated through rides, attractions and 4D Intellectual Property-reproduced streets and towns. Each zone will also feature themed restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and entertainment performances.
