If you’re still mourning the conclusions of your favorite YA sagas ‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘Twilight,’ the good news has been two-fold for you this month. Bookstr recently reported on the fact that Lionsgate have more movies planned for both franchises. Pretty cool right? The only thing that could possibly be cooler? THEME PARK.
That’s right. A ‘Hunger Games’/’Twilight’ theme park is in the works. Lionsgate announced on Tuesday that its first branded outdoor theme park will open at Jeju Shinhwa World, in South Korea.
The attraction will span 1.3 million square feet and will be split into seven movie zones, each themed around blockbusters such as ‘The Hunger Games,’ ‘The Twilight Saga,’ ‘Now You See Me,’ and the upcoming 2018 movie ‘Robin Hood.’
In a statement, Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer said:
“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.Our partners are creating a world-class resort that will be the perfect home for our theme park.”
Construction is planned to start in 2018, with an opening date in 2019. Flights to South Korea will be pretty cheap if we book them two years in advance right?
