The dinosaurs of Jurassic World are leaping off the screen and coming to an arena near you. Feld Entertainment and Universal Brand Development are developing a live-touring show for the popular dinosaur franchise.
Feld will develop, produce and tour the multi-year arena show, scheduled to launch fall 2019 in the United States and will continue globally. The show features a herd of life-size dinosaurs, some as big as 40-feet long, and uses state-of-the-art projection mapping to transport fans right to Isla Nublar. Using sophisticated animatronics and performer-operated characters, the live show will pay tribute to the film that grossed $1.7 billion worldwide and is the fourth-biggest movie release of all time.
The second installment in the film franchise – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom arrives in theaters on June 22, 2018 and the unique arena show will launch the following year.
“To bring this epic dinosaur world to life off the big screen, Feld Entertainment is breaking down the traditional arena barriers that typically exist between the audience and the live action,” a press release from Feld reads. “For the first time in an arena setting, fans will experience the epic wonder, thrills, awe and terror of the Jurassic World franchise up close and in their hometown.”
Kenneth Feld, CEO of Feld Entertainment, said the “live Jurassic World arena experience will create new ways for fans to engage with one of the world’s most popular franchises,” adding, “Feld Entertainment has the expertise and experience to bring this iconic franchise to life through an innovative format in an immersive arena setting coupled with a unique narrative that includes iconic locations and fan favorite dinosaurs – creating edge-of-your-seat, live entertainment that is a mix between a stunt show and a 3-D thrill attraction.”
Feld Entertainment will build and rehearse the live Jurassic World experience at their 580,000-sq.-ft studios in Ellenton, Florida. For more information visit Live.JurassicWorld.com
