Landing Jeju has unveiled plans to develop a
Lionsgate Movie World at Jeju Shinhwa World in South Korea.
Lionsgate Movie World, spanning approximately 1.3 million square
feet (approximately 122,000 square meters) and centered around
multiple renowned Lionsgate film properties, will be Lionsgate's
first branded outdoor theme park and the latest milestone in the
continued ramp up of Lionsgate's location-based entertainment
business around the world.
In addition to being Korea's first international
theme park, Lionsgate Movie World at Jeju Shinhwa World will be
the first outdoor theme park built exclusively around world-famous
movies. It is also the largest destination attraction to date in Lionsgate's growing international network of branded theme parks,
entertainment centers and other attractions in the U.S., Europe,
the Middle East and Asia.
The project will be developed into seven
movie zones, each themed around blockbuster Lionsgate properties
which have collectively grossed nearly $9 billion at the global
box office. These include The Hunger Games, The Twilight Saga and
Now You See Me as well as the eagerly-anticipated March 2018
release Robin Hood.
Visitors will be able to experience actual movie
scenes through state-of-the-art rides, attractions and 4D
Intellectual Property (IP) reproduced streets and towns. Each zone
will also feature themed restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and
entertainment performances. Lionsgate Movie World at Jeju Shinhwa
World is expected to commence construction in 2018 and is
scheduled to open in 2019.
"We're pleased to partner with our
friends at Landing International, one of Asia's premier
developers, on our first branded outdoor theme park and one of our
largest and most exciting location-based entertainment
destinations," said Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer. "Our partners are creating a world-class resort that
will be the perfect home for our theme park. Under the leadership
of Tim Palen, Kerry Phelan and Jenefer Brown, and driven by a
valuable portfolio of intellectual property, we have built a
global location-based entertainment business in just three short
years, and Lionsgate Movie World promises to become one of its
