Lionsgate Movie World to Open at Jeju Shinhwa World in South Korea

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 crown jewels."

Lionsgate Movie World will be the centerpiece of Jeju Shinhwa World, one of Korea's most dynamic integrated resorts spanning an area of approximately 2.5 million square meters (over 20 million square feet).

 Opening progressively in phases from earlier this year, Jeju Shinhwa World offers premium guest experience in world class resort facilities including Four Seasons, Marriott and Somerset hotels, upscale resort condominiums and villas, high end retail for international and K-fashion brands.

 The integrated development will also feature an array of leisure and entertainment options including a waterpark, theme parks, a destination spa, an international style casino and a K-pop entertainment center.
