Lionsgate Planning Movie Theme Park in South Korea

17 Aug, 2017 By: Erik Gruenwedel

Lionsgate announced it is working with a South Korean theme park operator to develop 'Lionsgate Movie World' — the studio/distributor’s first branded outdoor amusement park.

Spanning about 1.3 million square feet, the park will feature seven movie zones, each themed around Lionsgate properties, including "The Hunger Games," "The Twilight Saga" and "Now You See Me," as well as the March 2018 release Robin Hood, among others.

Visitors will experience movie scenes through state-of-the-art rides, attractions and 4D-reproduced streets and towns. Each zone will also feature themed restaurants, cafés, souvenir shops and entertainment performances.

The park will be the centerpiece of Jeju Shinhwa World, a collection of resorts encompassing more than 20 million square feet. Resorts include the Four Seasons, Marriott and Somerset hotels, condominiums and villas, retail for international and K-fashion brands.

“Our partners are creating a world-class resort that will be the perfect home for our theme park,” CEO Jon Feltheimer said in a statement. 

Lionsgate Movie World is expected to commence construction in 2018 and open in 2019.
